A restored 10 by 8 print of the bountiful Suzi Shaw by Russell Gay taken at his studio. A typical shot that went on to appear in the likes of QT or Model magazines, with the model posing in underwear or other loose garments with various odd props dotted around. Still a rather nice shot of Suzi and her large tits hanging down in this pose 🙂
Another beautiful shot of Susan Shaw (Gisa) posing in the garden in a nice open toweling swimsuit. I love the way the zip is down and she’s pulling open the swimsuit to expose those small perky tits, a very tempting offering 😉
Taken by Paul Pantha (Terry Sparks) on location at some unknown house in January 1967, from a set of contact sheets sent over by Kevin.
I originally published this shot from Kamera No.48 (1962) here, but this comes direct from the negative. As you can see the clarity of the shot from the negative is so much better, plus members get to see the full scan of the medium format negative that shows so much more of the living room floor and fireplace at GHM’s place 🙂
A second shot of Susan Shaw (Gisa) by Paul Pantha (Terry Sparks) posing topless leaning against a table with her corduroy trousers unzipped. The house is unknown but she appears in several different rooms and locations outside throughout this set of photo’s. A stunning topless shot very reminiscent of a typical Sun page 3 shot, which she did appear on several times during her career 🙂
A perky blonde named Gisa taken by Paul Pantha on location at some house in January 1967 from a set of contact sheets sent over by Kevin. This is another case of different names for different people, in this case both the model and the photographer.
The photographer Paul Panta is none other than Terry Sparks and Gisa is more well known as UK model Susan Shaw, with these shots of her being taken early in her career. If you go take a look at her over on VEF she went on to have a long and varied career, including appearances in Parade, Fiesta and Mayfair and plenty of Page 3 type work. She also had a foray into the more explicit and hardcore work as well as posing with James Hunt and appearing on numerous record covers!
Terry also went under the name Paul Pantha as a photographer when he worked for Russell Gay, before later using his own name. I have several other sets of contact sheets by Paul Pantha with more to come, but isn’t it sad that I recognised the photo’s as Terry’s work immediately, which he has since verified.
A beautiful shot of Susan posing on the doorstep in panties and a nice open toweling top, which must have been all the fashion back then as she has matching toweling swimsuit in other shots 🙂
