Another profile shot of Dawn Grayson from a beautiful 35mm colour negative of Dawn posing in her gold dress on a black background similar to this shot in the same dress. What a stunning look she has and love the simple make-up as she looks over her shoulder 🙂
Someone mentioned Duo’s and Trio’s of models posing together and here is a perfect duo in the shapely forms of Dawn Grayson and Cindy Neal. From an original strip of 35mm black and white negative this shot was taken at the Norland Astoria Studio in 1967 of the two girls. Both look fabulous sat on the sofa topless, especially Cindy who is looking directly at the camera.
There are plenty of shots out there of models posing together and I have loads, so maybe as suggested I should try and find some way of listing all the Duo’s, Trio’s and more if that interests anyone?
Believe it or not, not all of my collection are nudes or glamour related. I also have a large collection of ‘normal’ shots of my favourite models posing for standard profile shots or just dressed!
Dawn Grayson is one such model I just collect everything of her, nude or not. This black and white shot of Dawn (Kay Kirkham) is one such stunning example. This is a scan of an original 35mm negative from a seller over in the US and hasn’t been cropped in any way, but clearly shows the sculpted beauty of Dawn’s face framed by her naturally wavy auburn hair. I have several from this set and all are close-up profile shots and all show off Dawn’s beauty.
The magnificent Dawn Grayson at her best by Harrison Marks. A simple pose from Dawn on the sofa at GHM’s flat, but sometimes it’s the simple things that appeal the most and this certainly does that. Harrison Marks used Dawn on many occasions on many different shoots and sets but this shot and this set has to be my favourite from them both. Many of the shots from this set went on to appear in Solo No.43 (1964) and this shot also appeared on a poster for ‘Key Strip’ here.
This shot also appeared in Kamera No.65 P19 (1965) pretty much cropped as you see it here, except this is direct from the negative in my collection. Simply Dawn at her best 🙂
Time for one of my favourite shots from a set of Dawn Grayson originals, where she is posing in front of a red curtained background. She looks stunning in this closer cropped shot with her typical wavy red hair, red lipstick, small perky boobs and a rather cheeky little look contrasting perfectly with the red background.
Unfortunately this is the 4th shot of 5 that I have from this set, and I’ve been unable to find or acquire any others. There must have been plenty more out there, as this is a Kodachrome slide numbered No.21, so I’ll keep looking.
A beautiful 10 x 8 original print of Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge. I have literally 100’s of shots of Dawn in my collection and I’m trying to remember if I have any of her that show her so open and exposed? Saying that someone did mention to me that Bainbridge had a way of making the models relax and ‘open up’ for him and it certainly looks like it worked for Dawn.
This is one of my favourite recent shots of Dawn, along with another print of her by Bainbridge. I’m also trying to remember if I’ve ever seen her in the pages of H&E, she appears on various covers and within Girl Illustrated, the other Bainbridge publication, but I’ve only ever seen her on the cover of H&E No.835 (Nov 1970). Does anyone know if she ever appeared within the pages of H&E? Looking at the above shot it could well have appeared in either of the publications, if at all, but surely too good not to publish?
