These are some of my favorite “Gloria Dawn” face photos. Several of them have been cropped from larger photos:
The above photo is one that was never published. It was taken by Ron Vogel in May 1962. Here my eyes and hair colour are correct, whereas in many published photos, my eyes are brown and my hair is whiter than it really was.
Another photo that was never published. It was taken by my agent, Bill Margate, in January 1962. It was never intended to be published, but formed part of my portfolio shown to photographers. This was the first photo in which I showed my teeth when I smiled; before viewing this, I had always smiled with a closed mouth.
This one was taken by Michael LeRoy in May 1963. Again, that big smile. Again, never published.
Here I’m more pensive. This photo was also taken by Ron Vogel — this time in February 1962 — and although this particular version was never published, a similar photo was published in Bachelor’s Best in 1964.
Another photo by Ron Vogel, with a flirting look. Again a photo that was never published. Taken in May 1962.
A nice photo of my face taken by Donald Klumpp and published in the December 1963 issue of Escapade. Klumpp took several good pictures of me but only published one set (in Escapade). See also: http://pinupmemories.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/gloria-dawn-aka-shannon-m/ for an excellent copy of Klumpp’s Escapade centerfold taken at the same time as the above picture.
A colour photo by Michael LeRoy that was published in Monsieur magazine. LeRoy took only a few colour photos during his shoot.
This photo by Elmer Batters was taken in June 1963. It was published in Nylon Jungle, v1 n6 (1963). Again, that flirty look.
Another photo by Elmer Batters, this time taken when I had dark blond hair. It was published in Late Show and I was called “Leslie Southern” by the magazine.
Here is another unpublished photo by Michael LeRoy, taken in May 1963. This one is somewhere between a flirt and a smile.
Ron Vogel published several pictures of me laughing. He was the only photographer who was able to capture me while in the midst of a laugh. This one was was taken in February 1962 and published in Sir, 1966. Unfortunately the magazine’s print quality was poor, and so this is not a high-quality photo. But it is a good laugh.
