Lana Surfin by Paul Pantha (Original)

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 🙂

Susan Shaw Unzipped! (Original)

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  🙂

Gisa by Paul Pantha (1967)

A perky blonde named Gisa taken by Paul Pantha on location at some house in January 1967 from a set of contact sheets sent over by Kevin. This is another case of different names for different people, in this case both the model and the photographer.

The photographer Paul Panta is none other than Terry Sparks and Gisa is more well known as UK model Susan Shaw, with these shots of her being taken early in her career. If you go take a look at her over on VEF she went on to have a long and varied career, including appearances in Parade, Fiesta and Mayfair and plenty of Page 3 type work. She also had a foray into the more explicit and hardcore work as well as posing with James Hunt and appearing on numerous record covers!

Terry also went under the name Paul Pantha as a photographer when he worked for Russell Gay, before later using his own name. I have several other sets of contact sheets by Paul Pantha with more to come, but isn’t it sad that I recognised the photo’s as Terry’s work immediately, which he has since verified.

A beautiful shot of Susan posing on the doorstep in panties and a nice open toweling top, which must have been all the fashion back then as she has matching toweling swimsuit in other shots 🙂
