Chuck Miller

Dave Martin took this beachside shot of Chuck Miller and his ball.
Brian sent a lot more of this guy, but you'll have to wait for those.



  1. Technically not the best shot, but he's grinning, and that makes for a nice photo.

  2. What is surprising about Dave Martin's photos is that they were frontal nudes, mostly taken in the 1950s, when such pix were illegal and censored. When he sold his pix they usually had drawn-on fig leaves or such, to get them through the mail.
    It is also surprising that so many young men agreed to pose nude outdoors for him, when they could have been arrested for such activity. I knew him in San Francisco in the 1970s and was a good customer. His photos had an innocence and freshness that is lacking in today's pornojunk.

    1. I think more than a few of Dave Martin's models were flattered to be asked. And getting paid probably helped with any reluctance. Mr. Martin and quite a few of his fellow photographers had legal problems. He was careful to do his outdoor nude work at times and places most likely to go unnoticed.
