Caught in the Act with Harrison Marks!

A different small set of images from my collection of negatives I randomly bought! Caroline Coon in bed with the master himself, on the job so to speak! Even back then hidden cameras were used to capture initiate moments and these 3 shots seem to be candid, until Caroline sees the camera in the final shot.

Reading through the many articles and images from the old Harrison Marks website I came across some outtakes and commentary of the two weeks GHM and his team spent in Cornwall in 1966 with several models. The following is an excerpt from week 2.

‘Those of you that have read about Harrison Marks on the website, will know that two of the members of his crew, Tony and David, had a reputation for, sometimes elaborate, practicle jokes. A hidden camera with a remote shutter cable wouldn’t have been a problem for them and catching George on film in private moments was not difficult as you see’

Although I have no doubt these shots were one of those occasions, a couple of things I noticed. Caroline Coon as far as I’m aware never went on the two weeks to Cornwall in 1966. If she did she was one of the unnamed models, but then there are no images of her on location? Secondly I have several shots of Caroline including this shot featuring the same location and bed. So maybe not on location, but another time and location or even a set.

What we do see, is the master on the job in more than one way, enjoying himself with Caroline. Even when she notices the hidden camera she is laughing and pointing. So the joke seems to have been taken in a good way. Doubt it would have had the same reaction today!

June Palmer – Showing Some Leg!

I revisited an old shot of June from back in 2014 and re-edited the colours and it’s amazing how bad I was back then with colours!

It’s still a stunning shot of her sat on a desk, suitably or unsuitably dressed in a little back number (every girl should have one apparently!) Great studio shot of June dressed and showing us those great legs, just not sure about the ashtray in the background!

June Palmer – Mounds of Pleasure

A different shot of June Palmer up close and from above. From an original negative but the focus was very soft on this one, not that it takes anything away from the appeal of the shot. Yes we get to see June’s heaving bosom, but for me it’s those eyes and lips that grab my attention.

Dawn Grayson – A Flash of Thigh

A new scan of an original medium format negative of the stunning Dawn Grayson. Just a flash in this shot above her slightly raised skirt allowing us just to see some flesh and stocking tops. A stunning set of Dawn that teased and titillated but never went too far.

This image was part of a small set of 6 shots that appeared in Beautiful Britons No.230 under the title ‘Nice Finish’. Dawn at her absolute best 🙂

Maureen Stokes

Another 1960’s UK model that’s come to my attention and didn’t realize I had several negative sets of her until now 🙂

Maureen Stokes from a set of 35mm black and white negatives taken at Jason Studio’s in the 1960’s. A great but very tame shot of Maureen in sheer negligee and very typical hairstyle of that period. Thanks to Paul from Firebird for the shots from this set.

It then made me realize I also have a set of her from the same time and studio but revealing a lot lot more. But that’s for another day and post 😉
