Actress Tina Krause was featured in my second installment on the models of prominent pinup photographer Mike James. She first shot with Mike in 1997 and has done shoots with him almost every year since. She’s appeared with Mike at trade shows and events as the official spokesmodel for Azimuth Design, as well as appeared in print ads for the company. In essence, James Girl Tina is to Azimuth Designs, what Hooters Girl Lynne Austin was to Hooters restaurants.
Mike recently send me the exclusive, behind-the-scenes photos you see here, that he’s taken of Tina during some of the shoots he’s done with her for the past 19 years. A veteran of well over 100 horror films since her acting debut in 1994, Tina has truly earned the distinction of being a Scream Queen icon. She has yet to give an interview to yours truly, due to her always hectic schedule, but stay tuned for that. It goes without saying who all the photo credits here go to.

Big thanks again to Mike James of Azimuth Designs
