Gill Evans having a quick dip in a rock pool down at the beach in 1966. Taken by Harrison Marks in the summer of 1966 on his two week trip with his models to Bedruthan in Cornwall for images that would later to appear in Kamera on Location 66 and several Solo editions featuring his popular models. Gill was a model from the second week of the trip and seemed to enjoy being in the water, or so it seems as she is photographed in the sea, rock pools and a river in various shots throughout Kamera on Location 66.
Gill had a cracking figure as shown in this side profile shot and incidentally this is from one of my first negative purchases and scans from a few years ago.
Lorraine Burnette posing with a rock above her head on a beach on the Isles of Scilly by Harrison Marks. This particular shot comes from the hardback book ‘Kamera on Location’ P89 (1958).
The beautiful Robin (Alicen Warden) posing at the river edge from an original colour negative taken by Harrison Marks. I have quite a collection of negatives now of Robin, with nearly all of them taken on location down in Devon in 1966. This river and location were used no end of times in shots, but I have no idea as to which river it was, but it will have been somewhere near Bedruthen in North Cornwall where they were based for two weeks. Robin was the name that GHM gave Alicen, but no idea as to why that name was used, but she accompanied GHM and the team for the 1st week in May 1966.
I love her pose in this shot along with the pigtails, but that water sure doesn’t look very warm to me! More of Robin on location here.

A colour shot of Elaine Desmond posing in a rock pool on Bedruthen beach in nothing more than her pigtails. Another appearance of the familiar rock formation in the background, that has appeared in numerous shots of different models. As someone has noted this particular rock has a very phallic look to it, so probably used by GHM on purpose!
A scan of an original negative of Alicen Warden (Robin) on location down in Cornwall in May 1966. Alicen only ever posed for Harrison Marks for one week in May 1966, but as far as I’m aware this shot of her has never been published. Another redhead (ginger!) model who was given the nickname Robin for some reason and loving the pigtails. More of Alicen on location here.
Surprisingly ‘Kamera on Location 66’ is one of the few specials I don’t have a decent copy of, scanned or original, so always on the lookout for a copy 🙂
