Bobby at Pegwell Bay! (Original)

Another shot of Bobby Sparrow taken by Terry Sparks at Pegwell Bay, Kent in 1972. This shot comes from a set of original contact sheets by Terry and distributed to Lilo Korenjack who was his agent in Baden-Baden, Germany back in the 70’s. I fortunately came across these and many other contact sets (over 700 contact sheets scanned so far!) by accident via Lilo’s niece and now they are part of my collection.

A great shot of Bobby perched atop that piece of wood on the beach and a great smile too 🙂

Marie Deveraux – Deserted Delight! (Original)

A very sunny view of a smiling Marie Deveraux taken on the Isles of Scilly in 1958 sitting topless in the sand dunes wearing a sarong, blond wig and scarf. Photos from this shoot were published in the first Kamera on Location hardback book and a very similar image of Marie appears within those pages and I published it here. This image comes direct from the original negative with thanks to Kevin who sent it over.

A Very Flexible Lena Ellis (Original)

A very flexible Lena Ellis posing on the beach with one leg up so far behind her back it makes me ache just looking at it! Taken by Harrison Marks on the beach at Bedruthan on his jaunt to Cornwall in May 1966 with his harem of models. Although a very different shot of Lena this shot did actually get published as part of a 4 photo montage on P37 of Kamera on Location 1966. All 4 shots show off Lena’s slender naked body and her athleticism, so she may well have had some dancing skills in her background? I’ve included the original page below so you can see the 4 shots, but I have several original shots of Lena jumping and bending on the beach, but don’t think they appear anywhere else.

Finally, I have today published a complete version of Kamera on Location 1966 for members here. It took a while to scan and edit, but it’s a fabulous Kamera special and one of my favourites from the mid 1960’s.

GHM & His Models – Samantha

The start of something slightly different with some photo’s of the great man himself, Harrison Marks posing in front of the camera with his models. I have various shots of GHM with different models, so thought I’d post a few between the normal posts.

The first model with the great man is Samantha posing on Bedruthan beach, Cornwall in May of 1966. Samantha was one of five models taken by Harrison Marks for the 2nd week of the Bedruthen shoot, which started on Saturday 21st May. As I’ve already stated Samantha was classed as a young actress and only posed for GHM for that one week in May, with nearly all the photo’s of her appearing in Kamera on Location 66, with the odd other shot dotted through his other publications at that time. These shots were never actually published, but included as part of the Kamera on Location 1966 CD you could once purchase from the Harrison Marks website.

Over the coming weeks I’ll post more shots of models with GHM, plus I’m hoping to have something for members with regards to Kamera on Location 66 shortly as well!

Jackie Salt in the Sand! – Solo No.23 (1961)

Jackie Salt on the beach from Solo No.23 P30 (1961) dedicated to images of her taken by Harrison Marks. She looks rather pensive in this shot, probably the thought of all that sand in her bits 🙂
