I LIVE LOVE AND BREATHE RETRO, EVERYTHING VINTAGE, I WAS BORN TO CREATE RETRO ART.

ATTENTION MODELS WHO LOVE WORKING WITH OLD CARS!!!!!!
Introducng "Blauchen" my very own
30,000 mile ALL ORIGINAL Horizon Blue
1957 Volkswagen Oval Window Beetle - (it has the little "baby window" in the back) and
my cars named
"Blauchen" (That means something Small and Blue in German)
I'll be shooting my car with some very select models, starting after February 2014
*Girls if you'd like to work with a lovely vintage Volkswagen Beetle then this shoot is for you, ASK ME ABOUT IT*
I'm a Retro Fashion and Art Fetish PHOTOGRAPHER based in Winter Haven, but I will shoot all over Florida, from Tampa Bay and the Gulf to Orlando and along the Atlantic Coast.
~ My everyday "user" vintage Leica M8 digital with a 1954 Nikkor H.C. f2/50 mm (Nikon) lens.
I'm currently one of the only Retro Photographer's in the world who is still shooting almost exclusively in real film and digital using vintage Leica rangefinder cameras.
I use vintage ~ Leitz/Leica - Carl Zeiss Jena - Canon - and Nippon Kogaku/Nikkor/Nikon rangefinder lenses together with the support of a $15,000+ wardrobe of original vintage clothing ~
And I also invite the talent of various extremely talented local based Hair and Makeup Artists.
I'm an expert in my field of Retrospective Photography here in the Southeastern United States.
PUT ON A HAPPY FACE
I ALWAYS TRY TO SURROUND MYSELF WITH HAPPY AND POSITIVE THINKING PEOPLE
I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR MODEL WANNABE'S, DRAMA QUEENS AND WOMEN WHO ALWAYS HAVE PERSONAL CRISIS'S, ARE SICK ALL THE TIME OR ARE SOME VICTIMS OF MENTAL ILLNESSES THAT AFFECT THEIR ABILITY TO KEEP APPOINTMENTS AND SCHEDULED PHOTOSHOOTS.
I WILL ASK FOR PROFESSIONAL REFERENCES FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS BEFORE I WORK WITH ANYONE ~ THIS IS REGARDLESS OF WHAT TYPE OF SHOOT I'M DOING, PAID OR OTHERWISE ~ I ONLY WANT TO WORK WITH PROFESSIONAL, TIMELY, COURTEOUS, MENTALLY STABLE, AND DRUG FREE MODELS.
My style Influences come from many different sources......
I have loved and collected Vargas and Petty Girl Prints and Calendars since I was a teenager and also vintage 1950's and 60`s "Girlie" magazines, vintage cameras, clothing and props.
And I've always admired work from these famous Photographers of the original PinUp Glamour/Camera Club era and beyond, namely.......
Peter Gowland, Bill Hamilton, Bunny Yeager, Ron Vogel, Kirk Hauspean,
Serge Jacques, Andre Belorgey, Roland Carre, George Harrison Marks,
Russel Gay, Irving & Paula Klaw, John Willie, Eric Kroll and last but certainly not least the late great
Elmer Batters......there's also the fact that vintage cinema has had a great influence on my personal style, derived in works from English Director Carol Reed and French New Wave Directors Louis Malle, Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut.
Then add this all up with my personal love for everything Retro and like a good martini blend together and shake very well and this is what I call
Since 1992 shooting the finest in Retrospective Vintage Styled Glamour and Erotica in the Southeastern United States.
I have worked with over 800 professional and amateur Retro models
I work together with various vintage sportscar racing associations, vintage drag racing and concours events as well as various well known vintage car and motorcycle shows throughout the state of Florida

***I have devoted fans of my work worldwide, it makes me very happy to see that people enjoy my photographs and here's what some fellow photographer`s and models have to say about me and my work***
~ It was of the greatest HONOR that one of my IDOLS and inspirations and one of America's greatest photographer's who has driven my career from the very beginning PERSONALLY would say this to me.... ~
"You are a very fine photographer. What I noticed most about your work is that you tend to find creative angles to shoot your models. This is good because most photographers don't do this as it is too much work for them. Keep doing it, it is a good style." 2005
Bunny Yeager (1929-2014) R.I.P.
(The renowned and world famous PinUp and Glamour Photographer, who photographed Bettie Page, Maria Stinger, Diane Webber and many of the TOP glamour models and Playboy Playmates of all time)
~Thank you Bunny, you are an amazing and wonderful woman~
"You shot me just like the original Petty pinup girl painting and now that photo is a tattoo on my husbands arm, thanks a million for this great photo shoot, it took 2 years to find the right photographer, but we did when we found you."
"Tom is a great photographer and a fantastic guy. If you have the chance to shoot with him dont pass it up. You will not regret it"
"Super Awesome guy, I absolutely love working with him! I met him at TattooFest randomly and ever since we've hit it off GREAT! He's really fun to work with and his work is fucking magnificent! He makes sure that every image that was taken looks absolutely perfect! He works around people's schedules, and let me tell you, mine is hectic as all hell right now, and he's so damn understanding about everything! Really, if you're ever in the area (Central Florida) you NEED to hook up with KGS! You wont regret it!"
"Working with Tom is always fun and spontaneous. His
enthusiasm for what he does and his unique approach makes for timeless photographic moments. He has carved a niche
for himself stylistically and that is a tough thing to
do these days."
"I love your work. just wanted you to know that you are a big inspiration to me.
The one thing that I love about you in particular is that your work is so honest. it's just in your face, the real deal! when I look at your images, I just know you eat, breathe, and live what you do....and that is awesome."
(LMS Images Nevada)
"The pictures are wonderful!!!!!!!!"
Mark and Mary
(From the Ecurie Sport Vintage Porsche Racing Team from Wisconsin with whom I work with every year at the Sebring Historics)
"There are so many words that can describe Tom`s sense passion for his art; I truly foresee his work as classic, witty and graceful, his pictures are taken in modern times put into a time capsule, mixed about and brought back out into the style that`s become his very own, his photography and artistic style is something that was born in him, not taught."
"Tom from Kool Girlie Stuff Photography is one of the most energetic, fun-loving photographers I have worked with. We are always incredibly productive and we laugh the entire shoot! The work is high quality, and Tom's style is unique and eye-catching. He's the master of shooting awesome angles and his love for retro/vintage images will bring him far in the industry. If you have the opportunity, shoot with this man! You need his name in your portfolio!!!!!!!!"
"I was your very first KGS bride... those days were fun, thanks for making me feel so beautiful, I'll always have those pictures."
Manda Dawn Dawson
"Tom is an amazing photographer, very professional, very detailed and most of all, very funny! He is a delight to work with and is very responsible. Tom is very punctual and made me feel at ease during the entire shoot. I look forward to working with him again soon."
"I love you brilliant one!
ANYONE should count themselves lucky to shoot with you. You are one of the true, rare artists of all time...and my dearest friend."
Audrey Van Dommeln
"Your style is unique which is hard to achieve especially these days where retro models and retro photographers seem to pop up from everywhere."
(German retro model)
"I have always adored your work and your models.
Your work is always fun, and beautiful."
"Tom Eitnier is my all-time favorite photog!
His first priority is having fun and making girls giggle & smile.
He always looks out for his models. He respects limits and would NEVER ask a girl to overstep her boundaries. I look to him as friend, mentor, advisor...oh yeah, and he takes nice photos too! Hehe! Tom-Tom is "the bee's knees!"
"Working with you Tom, was very professional, the retro bondage work was fun and I felt like I was in a little movie just like Bettie Page, Danke Vielmals!"
"Tom Eitnier is a truly gifted photographer. His passion for his photography shows through in all of his work. Tom has the ability to create a scene in one's mind with a single photograph. The energy, vision, and charisma that he brings to each photo shoot allows for a great work enviornment and a wonderful experience."
Carrie Anne Thompson
"I have been working with Tom Eitnier of KGS since 2002, when I was a wee 18 years young! We still work together presently, and he has taken almost all of my photos! He works with me, and works with what I want, as well as what he wants... that way everyone is happy. He understands that I'm a picky brat about my photos, too! His photos have made me look the most beautiful I could ever look, and I can't begin to put into words what that does for me as a person. It's a priceless feeling! I look forward to working with Tom for as long as I continue to model! Thanks Tom!!!"
"Tom is an absolute joy to work with. He is so respectful, so professional, and I always end up having a great time with him (not to mention he always makes me look a million times hotter than I actually am.)
He's a great colleague and an even better friend... Tom, you are, as I always say, THE MAN."
(Model & Photographer~
Erratic Assassin Photography)
"Tom Eitnier is simply one of the best photographers of our time. He has the ability to not only take phenomenal retro photos, but he makes those photographs seem absolutely REAL. What you get when you work with Tom is an authentic result. He is a pleasure to be around and to work with and I look forward to our next session.
I LOVE being a KGS Girl! Tom you are the BEST!"
"The Vintage Vixen"
"I`m so loving your photos, they definably have a way different edge than other retro/pin-up photographers... some of them look like they were taken in the 50's or 60's."
"It was a wonderful experience working with you, I was very comfortable working in full artistic nude work, the photos are beautiful and models please note that Tom is a gentleman, professional and quite simply a genius."
(Swedish High Fashion Model and Actress)
"Tom's work is amazing! I did a few shoots with him back in 2003 and he never ceases to amaze me with his talent. He was very professional, nondemanding & lets the model do what comes natural. I would recommend him to any model out there looking for something different & certainly unique. Thanks Tom! Looking forward to shooting again in the future."
"The electrical outlet is one of the trademarks of your work."
(ex-girlfriend and the FIRST KGS model now professional photographer in Germany)
"Thanks a million Tom; You are sooo great and easy to work with! You are a true artist....I had a great time working with you!!!"
Miss ~ DeMeanor
(Reknowned Florida Tattoo Artist)
"Yo your the greatest!!!"
"Tom was a pleasure to work with - professional, enthusiastic and dedicated to originality - whatever era he chooses to shoot in! I have never had so many compliments about one set of pictures, it's just a shame he lives so far away that we can't work together more often!"
(TV Hostess and alternative/retro model from the UK)
"Tom Eitnier and I worked together for many many years shooting PinUp and Retro styles, it was a very enjoyable experience and always lot`s of fun and excitement for me, we did air shows and car shows and I had the chance to work with lot`s of rare airplanes and cars, there was something new every time we got together for photos and never ever a dull moment, I was Tom`s *Muse* for many years
I have since retired from modeling due to making other career choices in my life, but the time I spent working with Tom will be a time I will dearly remember and cherish, full of great times and the keepsake of his beautiful photos for always - Thanks So Much Tom!"
Miss Remee Martin
"I love your work!! It reminds me of a faster pussy cat kill kill mixed with an erotic beautiful pin-up feel. its hot."
"Tom is an absolute blast to work with! He keeps the shoot up beat and fun, he's honest, creative, and fun! Not to mention, always keeps a lively conversation going so the shoot is NEVER quiet or uncomfortable. His work is authentic, with a real vintage appeal - there's really nothing else like it!"
Miss Whitney Morgan
