Well, it’s that time of year again! Another year nearly done, and a busy one it’s been! The site moved location to a new host in March and has been much more stable since. Unfortunately, I’ve been busy with work and a new puppy, so the posts haven’t been as frequent, but that’s life for you!
A big thank you to everyone for the support over the last year, even on the slow days the messages of support were always appreciated. The site still thrives and continues despite a few times wanting to give it all up.
So I wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year and hoping that 2023 is a good one..
As usual, things on here will slow down over the Christmas period, but Kamera Club will return once more in 2023 for maybe one more year of vintage glamour goodies.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a shot of Dawn Grayson on the festive set by Harrison Marks. Although she’s covered up in that familiar fur, it’s still a stunning shot of Dawn. Those eyes and how she just looks at the camera does it for me, enough to warm anyone up!
One of my favourite Xmas Crackers today in the shape of Dawn Grayson. This is a rearview of Ms Grayson showing her fabulous bottom. This was from P29 of the Kamera Winter Special, published by Harrison Marks in 1967.
A Xmas Cracker in the shapely figure of Mary Stephan (Caroline Coon in a blonde wig) attempting to ‘feel up’ Santa! This is from the original negative, but appeared in the Kamera Winter Special (1967). Santa is actually played by Harrison Marks himself on the cover and in some shots, but I’m unsure if this is one of them. The gown also looks like the gown used by Monique Devereux and others from other shoots.
What better way to end the 2019 Kamera Club Christmas Calendar than with a festive view of my all time favourite Dawn Grayson. I posted a version of this shot back in 2016 as my Christmas card for that year, but never posted the complete shot, so here we go.
The original shot appeared in the Kamera Winter Special P10 and P11 (1966), but this is from the original negative in my collection. We also have Santa (Harrison Marks) and a snowman looking on, but neither compare to a stunning Dawn in furs. Anyway I’ll end the year with this shot, as things will now wind down on the site over Christmas.
Finally, Happy Christmas and New Year to you all and see you in the next decade 🙂
Does it get any better on the run up to Christmas than a nude Dawn Grayson underneath the Christmas tree! By Harrison Marks and originally published in the Kamera Winter Special P7 (1967) this is a scan from the original negative, although I do own a copy of the special itself. I think Dawn looks at her superb best in this special and a very similar shot to this appeared on Kamera Calendar 1968 January page.
I also think the Winter Special has to be one of my favourite Kamera specials, but with lots of fabulous winter nudes. Unfortunately I roll a new batch out every Christmas and there are only a few good shots left I haven’t published. Maybe time to revisit a few of the classic favourites once I’ve exhausted my collection. It’s also a shame GHM never decide to do another Winter Special as I’m sure it would have been as popular as all the other specials.
I’d just like to wish all followers and members of the site a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year! I’d also like to thank all of the friends and supporters of the site that have provided feedback and images over the past year. It’s always appreciated and without your continued support the site wouldn’t be half as good as it is. I’m going away over the Christmas period, so things will slow down here, but I hope you all have a good break and I’ll see you all back here for another year of vintage goodies in 2017.
The above Christmas scene is obviously the glorious Dawn Grayson posing on Santa’s sleigh amongst the furs, but still showing off that fabulous figure. The original shot appeared in the Kamera Winter Special P10 and P11 (1966), but this is from the original negative in my collection. We also have Santa (Harrison Marks) and a snowman in the scene, but neither take away the limelight from Dawn and I wish Santa would bring me one of those on his sleigh this year!
Caroline Coon as Mary Stephan (Blonde wig) in the uncensored version of a shot originally published in the Kamera Winter Special (1966). This version, which I prefer, was actually published in Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 P42 (1969).
Another festive themed shot as Christmas approaches and another scan from one of my original negatives. This one features firm favourite Dawn Grayson on the festive set, including Santa! This shot was taken in 1966 for the Kamera Winter Special and a similar image of Dane pointing off into the distance appears on the cover, but she’s sat rather than stood. This image also doesn’t appear in the actual magazine or appear anywhere else, unless I’ve missed it?
Santa as I’ve mentioned before is supposedly Harrison Marks himself, but not 100% convinced, as who’s taking the photo then?
I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. I’d also like thank all of you that have supported the site and me over the last year, with feedback, comments and new content. It’s always appreciated and what makes the site what it is and keeps me wanting to come back and do more and more.
Sorry, I copped out of the letter i for the calendar, but decided to create this year’s Christmas card instead. The card features one of my original images of Caroline Coon under the alias Mary Stephan posing on the Festive/Winter set. So very apt and if you look very closely in the shadow of the present you can just see a hint of bush! Most of the shots on this set went on to appear in the Kamera Winter Special (1967), but this one doesn’t, so was either unpublished or more likely appeared in a normal edition of Kamera I’ve missed!
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the Christmas break with your families and friends 🙂
