Sonia Mitchell better known as Terry Graham posing on a beach for Terry Sparks. The beach in question was down in Bournemouth and the date according to Terry was May 1969. I published a small set of these shots a while back that Terry sent over from an old SVHS tape, but now I have a set of 11 contact sheets with over 130 shots of Sonia at various locations around Bournemouth and some at the flat in Notting Hill and all fabulous quality such as this shot.
Looking at this shot of Sonia kneeling topless like that on the beach I long for some warmer days, roll on the summer I say!
Marianne Morris (Vicki Pascale), Venetia Day and Dinah Challen (Linda Rome) by Terry Sparks taken on a beach in Rhodes in 1971. A fab shot of all three as they lay out naked on the sea edge enjoying the sun. I’m not sure if Dinah is looking at the camera or eyeing up one of those cold bottles of Coke, as I’m sure it was hot thirsty work laying there like that! One also assumes the single bottle of beer was for Terry?
I now have many more shots of these three taken by Terry in Rhodes, thanks to a fabulous collection of original contact sheets I’ve acquired of Terry’s work, of which there is plenty more to come!
Tina Graham (Christine Carter) posing for Harrison Marks on the beach set and similar to the these shots from the same set. A beautiful pose from Tina and she looks a little like Rona Scott in this shot I think, although Rona had a large chest! Not quite an uncensored shot, but you do get a tantilising tease of things between her legs from the shadowy outline of her open thighs 🙂
I’ve posted several individual shots of the three models Marianne Morris, Venetia Day and Dinah Challen by Terry Sparks on Rhodes, but very few of them all together, but it’s very nice to find this article in Girl Illustrated Vol.5 No.1 (1971) with them all. They have Marianne down as Viki Pascal, which I knew she modelled as, but Dinah as Linda Rome is a new name to me. Some great shots of the three and I even posted the original image of Ventia posing arms up on her own sent over by Terry here.
It’s always nice to find stuff by Terry, even better when it’s in Girl Illustrated and thanks to Beutelwolf over on VEF for the original scan.
Gill Evans having a quick dip in a rock pool down at the beach in 1966. Taken by Harrison Marks in the summer of 1966 on his two week trip with his models to Bedruthan in Cornwall for images that would later to appear in Kamera on Location 66 and several Solo editions featuring his popular models. Gill was a model from the second week of the trip and seemed to enjoy being in the water, or so it seems as she is photographed in the sea, rock pools and a river in various shots throughout Kamera on Location 66.
Gill had a cracking figure as shown in this side profile shot and incidentally this is from one of my first negative purchases and scans from a few years ago.
Lee Southern (Sothern) cooling off in the sea on the cover of Health & Efficiency (June 1967). Nothing risqué about this cover, but Lee looks sexy and cool at the same time in her blue bikini as she takes a splash in the sea. Taken at a beach close to Sheplegh Court in Devon, which was a popular haunt of editor Leslie Bainbridge.
A beautiful shot of June Palmer taken at the same time as similar shots from She Walks in Beauty (1964). Posing on a Cornwall beach in an open long white negligee/dressing gown as she leans against some rocks June looks as radient as ever. Similar images of June appeared in SWiB here
Terry Peters posing on the rocks in open long white negligee by Harrison Marks from the mid 1960’s. A stunning early shot of Terry taken down on location, probably at one of GHM’s favourite spots near bedruthan beach, as I’ve seen other shots of Terry in that location with the famous Queen Bess rock stack in the background. Regardless of location Terry looks stunning sat on those rocks.
