A beautiful shot of until now an unknown beauty taken by Harrison Marks, but now identified as British model Jane Steadman.
This shot was taken in front of the large willow tree on the front lawn at Ewhurst Manor and actually looks as though Jane is balancing on tiptoes like a ballerina. If you look closely though she is actually in mid air or mid jump when the shot was taken, which shows how good GHM was at his craft. To capture someone jumping mid air like that and to get the shot focused manually as it would have been back then is truly remarkable. That’s not to say it didn’t take multiple attempts, but compared to today where you can just keep shooting with instant results this is a superb shot of Jane. Jane also makes the shot work, not only with her slender body, small perky tits and fine bush, but also the perfect mid air pose 🙂
A big thank you must go to Paul from Firebird who’s been sending me multiple model lists and negative strips he’s acquired. Many of which have now helped me identify several more GHM and British models from the 1960’s including Jane.
I published this shot of Madeline Collinson by Harrison Marks back in 2014, but that was a scan of a very poor print and things have moved on since then. Now I have the original negative plus a few more, so thought it was time to update the image with a much crisper and cleaner shot. A much better view of Madeline’s figure and smooth neat mound as she poses in the grounds of Ewhurst Manor 🙂
A cheeky little rear view shot of Lorraine Burnett out and about! Lorraine with shot dark hair showing off her dimples as she lifts her white dress to expose her bum to the camera and giving us a different view than we are used to from her. No goofy smile either 🙂
Earlier this week I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the members of this site over coffee. John had contacted me saying he had a collection of vintage prints in his collection taken by Leslie Bainbridge and others and would I be interested in seeing them. Well it turns out not only do we live in the same country, but are fairly local to each other, so it seemed too good an opportunity to pass on.
Upon meeting John, not only does he have a fabulous collection of over 200+ original prints from Bainbridge, Harrison Marks and others, but he also shared his collection of photos of his fabulous wife Jane. John and Jane were regular visitors to nudist clubs such as Eureka, North Kent, The White House and Sheplegh Court where they ran into Leslie Bainbridge. Jane was always immaculately shaven which was very uncommon at the time for regular members, as opposed to visiting models who were shaven. Jane was often asked to pose and did so occasionally, such as this shot of her after a swim in the Sheplegh pool.
A stunning shot of Jane and I must say a big thank you to John for not only sharing his vintage print collection with me, but also his shots of Jane and also letting me share her on here as well. I’m currently working through the prints as John has been generous and trusting enough to leave them with me to scan, plus a few more of Jane. So I’m hoping to share a few from his print collection soon and hopefully more of Jane if everyone enjoys and he agrees 🙂
Another new UK model from the late 1960’s in the shapely form of Lana Surfin photographed by Paul Pantha, who is none other than Terry Sparks under a Pseudonym. Another wonderful model that I have lots of different shots of posing in and around a familiar house layout that Terry seemed to like, but no idea about it’s location or other details. A stunning body and figure on her, but also can’t seem to find any publications she appeared in, at least under this name 🙂
A third shot of Dawn Grayson (Kay Stephens) posing on a garden pathway at Ewhurst from this set. With arms stretched across the walkway touching either side of an arbor it gives us a perfect view of her legs and flash of one small tit on a sunny day.
Keeping with a theme today and after the original June Palmer film, another image of her with things oiled this time! An earlier shot of June posing naked on the beach kneeling on a towel with oil all over her, taken in the 1960’s. I believe it was taken at the same period of time as this shot of her as Joanna Kent, as it looks to be the same rocks behind her, but obviously wearing a wig and a different towel 🙂
A second shot of Susan Shaw (Gisa) by Paul Pantha (Terry Sparks) posing topless leaning against a table with her corduroy trousers unzipped. The house is unknown but she appears in several different rooms and locations outside throughout this set of photo’s. A stunning topless shot very reminiscent of a typical Sun page 3 shot, which she did appear on several times during her career 🙂
