This is a snapshot I picked up at an antique shop a few years ago. I knew it would come in handy some day. Isn't she interesting? Looks like she's in some type of uniform and she appears to be in the desert somewhere. She's snapping a photo and tightly holding on to the camera case. Is she the keeper of the box at her left? Why put it in the photo?
And then there's this lady photographer. I bought this postcard for our photographer, Steve for his birthday. I guess he didn't like it because he left it sitting around and didn't take it home. He probably didn't want his wife to see it. Who knew that Sepia Saturday would have a lady photographer theme some day and I'd be able to use it? Steve will probably want it back now that it's famous.
So here is Nanci White, photographed by that famous photographer of the 50's, Bunny Yeager. She was born in 1930 in Wilkinsburg, Pa. and went on to become one of the most photographed models in Miami. Then she decided she liked being on the other side of the camera. She's most famous for making Bettie Page famous (the famous pin-up model of the 50's). She took most of her photographs including ones that appeared in Playboy magazine. She also took photos of Ursula Andress and of course, Nanci White who appears below. In 1968 she played the role of a Swedish Masseuse opposite Frank Sinatra in Lady in Cement. She also played a part in the 2005 film The Notorious Bettie Page.
Here's Bunny Yeager on the job:
