Julie Collins by Terry Sparks (Original)

Sometime ago I purchased several 100 contact sheets off eBay featuring various photographers from back in the 1970’s including Howard Roark, Terry Sparks, Edmund Leja and others. At the time I had no idea really as to which models were included within the contact sheets, but took a punt on them anyway. As it turns out I got very lucky indeed and ended up with a lot of contact sheets of some well known models back then, some of which are favourites of mine.  Most of them ended up being from Terry including a set of 9 contact sheets featuring 109 shots of none other than Julie Collins including the shot above. 

Julie is a big busted favourite of mine and first caught my attention when she appeared in the later editions of Kamera by Harrison Marks. Since then I’ve managed to collect several original negatives of her by GHM, but was very surprised and pleased to see that Terry had also photographed her back in the 70’s. I shouldn’t be that surprised as most popular models back then tended to do the rounds with the different photographers, with the likes of Angela Duncan, Sylvia Bayo and Julie Collins and others all working with both GHM and Terry. Luckily I have shots of two of my favourites, Julie and Angela by both Terry and Harrison Marks, but Sylvia contact sheets and images by Terry are more elusive, but I’m always on the lookout for them.

Finally, this is a gorgeous shot of Julie showing off her fabulous curves, big its and that glorious hairy pussy, perfect!

Tamara Jade – Half Way Exposed! (Original)

A fabulous flash from Tamara Jade taken by Howard Roark out in an open top car. Definately more than half way exposed with her white top pulled open exposing those shapely tits and those panties half down showing of her thick bush! I need to post some new models by Roark as I’ve got a growing collection of still unseen beauties to share 🙂

June Palmer – Focused From Above! (Original)

Another original shot of June from 1973 taken by an amateur photographer that met and photographed June on occasions, this one showing her in a reclining view from above. The original was orange on purpose (filter) and works both in its original format and when converted to black and white. The focus seems to be aimed higher up June’s body on her face, rather than her tits, which still works well.

Again I don’t know which version I prefer, the original colour or my black and white version?

Roberta Pedon – Alive & Kicking (Original)

Well this is a turn up for the books and a very pleasant surprise, but thanks to one of my sources I’ve been reliably informed that Roberta Pedon is still alive and well and living in Italy as of 2018! I’ve also been forwarded an article from The Realto Report here that gives more details of how she was found and a picture of her in 2018 and it sure looks like her.

Fabulous news that one of my favourite from the 70’s is still alive and kicking, so it only seems fitting to share the news with another original shot of her from back then and her two finest assets 🙂

Monique Devereux – Much More Than a Handful! (Original)

An unknown male enjoying more than a handful of Monique Devereux! This shot is from an original negative in my collection and I believe it’s a still from the 1972 Maximus glamour film ‘Medium Rare’. I don’t actually know much about this film, other than I have 2 stills from it both featuring Monique and this unknown male and they seem to be having sex in and around the bedroom! Not sure about the wig Monique is wearing or why her hairy bush looks so grey, but he seems to be enjoying himself.

Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge (Original)

A beautiful 10 x 8 original print of Dawn Grayson by Leslie Bainbridge. I have literally 100’s of shots of Dawn in my collection and I’m trying to remember if I have any of her that show her so open and exposed? Saying that someone did mention to me that Bainbridge had a way of making the models relax and ‘open up’ for him and it certainly looks like it worked for Dawn.

This is one of my favourite recent shots of Dawn, along with another print of her by Bainbridge. I’m also trying to remember if I’ve ever seen her in the pages of H&E, she appears on various covers and within Girl Illustrated, the other Bainbridge publication, but I’ve only ever seen her on the cover of H&E No.835 (Nov 1970). Does anyone know if she ever appeared within the pages of H&E? Looking at the above shot it could well have appeared in either of the publications, if at all, but surely too good not to publish?

Blonde & Bare! (Original)

A stunning view of an unknown beauty taken by Leslie Bainbridge and from the collection of member John’s original prints. A perfect pose in the sun of this unknown blonde bare beauty with a great figure and tan lines highlighting the white bits and smooth pussy. No idea who she is and unless anyone else can identify her she’s down in the Leslie Bainbridge list as Unknown Model No.5
