Annie Walker by Terry Sparks (1964)

A simple but stunning shot of Ann Walker taken in 1964 by Terry Sparks and one that comes with a story attached 🙂
Terry recently found the site whilst searching for one of his favourite models, Gloria Lomax and decided to contact me. It transpires that Terry spent three years working for Russell Gay from April 1966 to late 1968. What many people don’t know, is that Russell Gay lost interest in taking pictures around 1965 and thereafter concentrated on publishing, particularly QT, Fiesta and Knave. He employed Terry and Ken Williams to shoot for him. So although pictures were still going out stamped “Russell Gay Studios” they were in fact taken by Terry or previously Ken Williams. Russell did continue directing 8mm films but left the running of the studio, finding models etc. to Terry. As Terry stated it became quite frustrating to see his photographs being published with Russell’s name on them, but as he paid a reasonable salary Terry lived with the fact. After Terry left RG’s employment he went freelance, but still worked out of his studio and he also let him use a small office on condition that Russell got first refusal on any thing that Terry shot. This meant that Terry was still effectively shooting for Fiesta and Knave but it also allowed him to sell any pictures Russell did not want to his agents in the States and on the Continent.
Terry sent me the above photo which he took of Annie Walker in May 1964 before he worked for RG. Terry later became friends with Ann and remembers spending one afternoon wallpapering her bathroom in her new flat after she split with Ed Alexander. What a great story!
A big thank you to Terry for the wonderful story and image of Ann, as these are the things that make doing this site such a pleasure. Terry has promised to keep in touch and provide more stories and information and I already have another shot of Ann and some memorabilia from him.

Erica – Double The Exposure! (1959)

A double page spread of Erica from Kamera No.21 (1959) giving us a double view of Erica in the reflection of the mirror. Restored the best I could, but still a slight curve of the mirror due to page crease.

June Palmer – Swing Baby, Swing! (Original)

The second shot of June on holiday wearing those red bikini bottom’s. This time fooling around on a rope swing, but still a great candid shot of her having fun!

More June in Long Green Gloves (Original)

I’ve post a couple of shots of June in the long green gloves here before, but this is the first high-resolution copy of an original negative from the set. A wonderful close-cropped shot of June holding her gloved hands above her head and a huge thanks to Kevin for sending this through. Incidentally Kevin is currently selling a Teri Martine negative of Teri possibly wearing the same gloves, so maybe taken at Strobe?

June – An Uncensored Boudoir Shot! (Original)

A second shot from the set of June photo’s by Stefan Glass showing a full on uncensored view of June posing by the window as the light comes through to light up the curves of her fabulous body!
