Another shot by Terry Sparks from my collection of his contact sheets and this time featuring Franni Leigh, who has already appeared on this site several times before here. This comes from a set of photos taken by Terry in August 1972 and the two previous colour shots on the bed are from this same set. Compared to my other posts and other shots I have seen this is very tame, but at the same time a very good shot of her, with you being able to see her small pert tits through that tight top.
As already explained Franni wasn’t her real name and beneath that wig she was actually fashion model Polly Eltes, who worked for the likes of David Bailey and others, with this being one of her few full nude modelling assignments. She also had brief careers as a British actress and singer, but today she has come full circle and has become a successful photographer behind the camera working for interiors and lifestyle magazines. Thanks as always to Terry for the fabulous insights into his time behind the camera with these models.
It’s also my last post before my week away, so there will be no further updates until I return. Thank you to everyone for the comments and emails showing support to the site after my moan about my images being used elsewhere as it’s really appreciated. I’ll take the time away to decide what to do next, but I’m sure I’ll be back after my break and will continue posting in some format, as it would be a shame to hide away all the 1000’s of images I now have in my archive because of a few selfish people!
Enjoy Franni and see you all soon 🙂
A beautiful shot of ebony model Agnes Grieves taken by Terry Sparks. Not a model I was aware of until coming across this set of contact sheets of her by Terry, but she does remind me of another ebony model that also posed for Terry, Sylvia Bayo.
I have 9 contact sheets featuring Agnes by Terry with over 140 images of her posing in various locations around a house including bedroom, living room and some full nude shots in the bath. I have no idea where these were taken but Terry has commented that they were taken on 21st September 1971.
As an aside I recently acquired a further 8 sets of contact sheets of other models taken by Terry Sparks, so more new models to come including some fantastic sets of Terry Graham and Franni Leigh 🙂
Time for another original photo directly from the collection of Terry Sparks, but this time a shot from the 1980’s. This stunner lying in the long grass with water running down those beautiful tits is Wendy Knight. Terry worked with her several times in the 80’s but he doesn’t think she worked for anyone else and I don’t recognise her? More to come from Terry and Wendy soon 🙂
A beautiful studio shot of Caron Gardner by Terry Sparks and recently sent to me by Terry, who found this print in one of his notebooks and recalls it being taken in the late 1950’s. A great shot of Caron in heels and white panties and no doubt ended up in one of Russell Gay’s publications at the time.
Gillian Hanna or as she is better known Jennifer Eccles showing us her great glass holders, although the wine may get a little warm, as I know I would between those! This original shot was sent to me by the photographer himself, Terry Sparks and as many of you would know Terry has kindly been sending me some of his work along with some fantastic stories.
This shot also comes with a little story attached and Terry comments that ‘In September of 1977 I photographed a girl that I knew as Gillian Hanna. She was a bit of a nutcase, heavily into porn both stills and film. I only worked with her the once, as she was not really right for the markets I was shooting for at the time.
Well we all know the type of material that Gillian/Jennifer went on to do in the 1970’s and onwards, but what a fantastic find as I’ve not seen this shot of her before. Thanks to Terry for sharing his image and story, unfortunately he only has the one shot of her remaining.
