Maya Zell (Original)

Maya Zell by Harrison Marks posing on the bed in stockings. Another model that appeared later in Harrison Marks career and she featured in his third feature film ‘Nine Ages of Nakedness’ (1969). It appears as if she only did one still photo shoot and this was in the unidentified bedroom or, perhaps, bedroom set, shown above. I’ve checked my Kamera editions towards the end and cannot find her in any? So maybe she didn’t get published, but I do know she also worked with Terry Sparks on a film called the Hell Fire Club, so maybe only did limited work?

Lorraine Burnett – A Blonde at Bedtime! (Original)

A very classical pose from Lorraine Burnett with short blonde hair posing nude kneeling on the bed by Harrison Marks and from this set. Many of these shots of Lorraine with short blonde hair posing on the bed and in the dressing room were published in Kamera No.39 (1961) but I haven’t seen this shot used in that edition. It does however appear on the cover and inside pages of the later published magazine ‘Just Lorraine Burnette’ produced by Nostalgic Publications in the late 1990’s, which you can see below.

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.

Valerie Jones – Reflection of a Bathing Beauty

Another shot of Valerie Jones from The Fabulous Valerie Jones published by Gold Star publications. This shot appeared on P23 and shows Valerie and reflection sat with her feet in the bath. Taken by Harrison Marks this setting of the sunken bath and marble walls and mirrors has been used many times before with June Palmer and Britt Hampshire also putting the sunken bath to good use 🙂

Maxine King – Beauty & The Buick! (Original)

I finally have some new Maxine King originals, including this great shot of her sat on the bonnet of the white Buick car by Harrison Marks in 1964. It seems that Maxine only did 3 shoots with GHM, one in the studio, one in his studio penthouse and one taken in the grounds of Walden Manor in Orpington, Kent.

A beautiful shot of Maxine sat atop the bonnet and at first I thought the white line across her thigh was a fault or mark on the negative, but on closer inspection it’s actually a light reflection off the bonnet. This shot gives a very good view of Maxine’s slim figure, but didn’t she have a very small pair of perky tits 🙂

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.

Beauty in Colour 8mm Film Catalogue

Another vintage pamphlet from the late 1960’s advertising another set of 8mm colour films by Harrison Marks. These feature some of his later models in all their glory, including 3 featuring Cleo Simmons who also features on the front of the pamphlet. Other models include favourite Anna Verdi and Jutka ‘nipples’ Goz 🙂

A big thank you must go to Dave over at Rambooks, who scanned and sent this over along with some other great catalogue copies I’ve still to edit.

 

 

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!
