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.
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.
Molly Peters striking a pose in long white open negligee by Harrison Marks and comes from an original medium format negative as you can just see an uncensored of Molly down below. Taken on location amongst some hay bales, other shots of Molly similar to this appeared in ‘She Walks in Beauty’, which would make the date around 1964. I’d definitely mess about in the hay with Molly!
Nicky Stevens posing for Harrison Marks from an original negative taken in 1966. You can’t beat a naked woman on all fours on a Cornwall cliff top edge, but she does look a little close to the edge for my liking! A wonderful kneeling view of Nicky with the equally stunning Cornwall coastline in the background. Taken on location in 66 and part of the team that stayed down near Bedruthan from 14th May for two weeks and Nicky looks like she was having a good time despite the precarious position!
Sophia Dawn taken by Harrison Marks on a railway track down in Cornwall. I’ve seen this location used several times by GHM, but this shot has to be my favourite, as I love the pose from Sophia plus the wonderful smile. Taken on location down in Devon, not far from Bedruthan and it’s famous beach and steps I would guess? I bet her bum was cold on that track!
Update: Thanks to Omigosh who thinks the train track is Pencarrow on the Wenford Bridge line – very few trains , so “safe” and only a dozen or so miles from Bedruthan.
Elaine Desmond posing for Harrison Marks as she kneels on her hands and knees naked in the sand. Taken from an original medium format negative down on a beach probably on location in Cornwall in the mid 1960’s. A fabulous pose by Elaine, but she does seem to have a bit of a sandy bottom!
I don’t know why but this rear view shot of Jackie Salt taken by Harrison Marks down in the shallows on Bedruthan Beach in Cornwall really appeals to me for some reason. Mind you she does have a very nice bottom that makes the mind wander and think of things one could do with her on a sunny secluded beach like that!
Taken in 1961, this original negative seems to have been taken during the filming of ‘Naked as Natured Intended’ and a reversed copy of this shot appears here on a lobby card advertising the film itself. Bedruthan beach in Cornwall was and still is a bugger to get to, due to it’s secluded location and 100’s of worn dodgy steps to get down to it. No wonder GHM chose it for several of his location shoots including this one.
Dreaming of sunny days on a secluded beach with Jackie and why not on a cold winters day 🙂
