Just Kept Hanging!

Ever been sat waiting on hold on a phone call for what seems like hours, that’s me today! I bet they would answer if they knew Beryl was on the other end looking like this.

A beautifully posed shot of Beryl Gilchrist from an original 10 by 8 print. Maybe she’s calling some lucky person to come over and help her out 😉

Hazel – Sunhat & Sangria!

Hazel Taylor enjoying the great outdoors but remembering to wear a hat in the sun but not a lot else! Nice to see her keeping hydrated as well but not sure that’s water and she’s spilling it or purposely pouring it down herself!

A beautiful outdoor shot of Hazel against that tree and scanned from a 10 by 8 print and taken by Russell Gay

Annette Johnson – Garden Delight!

A beautiful shot from a 10 by 8 print of Annette Johnson. Posing in a garden nude we get a great view of the garden and Annette’s figure in this shot. Her curves look great in this pose and we get just a hint of a shaven delight for good measure 😉

Thanks to John for sending these originals prints to me for scanning and sharing.

Margaret by Lamplight!

A glorious shot of the late Margaret Nolan. Taken in the studio by Russell Gay a perfect pose by Maggie next to an ornate table and standing lamp. Great lighting in the shot as well and she also seems to be wearing a blonde wig even though it’s similar to her own hair colour.

Rosemary – All On Display Outdoors!

Rosemary de Canonville giving us a great outdoor display of what she has to offer. Scanned from an original 10 by 8 print this shot was taken by Leslie Bainbridge and typical of his style.

It’s interesting to see the different styles and preferences of photographers back then. Roark obviously had a preference for the younger natural sun tanned models. Bainbridge opted for the fully shaven view leaving little to the imagination, but again with it’s own merits. I like both styles for different reasons, but still tend to go back to Harrison Marks and his more generic style of glamour photography. GHM tended to focus more on the shape and form of the models pose along with lighting than what the model had on offer.

Again we all enjoy differing styles, which is why I try and offer a bit of everything and as the years progressed so did glamour photography, either for the better or sometimes the worse 🙂
