Bunny Yeager, photographer of Bettie Page pinups, dies at 84

Source: LA Times

Bunny Yeager had success as a model in Miami in the 1950s, but she wanted to be a photographer. She saw her chance when she met the little-known Bettie Page, who had modeled for under-the-counter photo sets that specialized in sadomasochism.

Yeager took a somewhat more wholesome, holiday-themed photo of Page — nude except for a Santa hat — and in 1955 sent it off to fledgling magazine Playboy. “I figured because they were new they might pay attention to an amateur, and that’s what happened,” she told the London Telegraph in 2012.

The photo launched her career as one of the most successful pinup photographers, often with Page — who became an international sex symbol — as her model.

Yeager, 84, died Sunday in a nursing facility in North Miami. The cause was heart failure, said her agent, Ed Christin.

What does Ironic Johnny Thune-Bag have in common with Bettie Page?

Well besides bondage . . . never thought Thune would EVER be on the same list as Bettie Page;

What Sen. Thune and a pinup model have in common

Was just reading the Wikipedia page for Biola University, the small California institution where Sen. John Thune did his undergraduate studies.

Joining Thune in the “notable alumni” section is 1950s pinup girl Bettie Page, who is blogging artist Scott Ehrisman’s favorite subject.

Also noticed Kermit Staggers, Ehrisman’s favorite politician, is cited as a Wikipedia source on the history of Biola.

So that’s weird.

Not sure who painted the background canvas, probably Terry Bittner (Don’t worry Terry, if I sell any of these, you get a cut :)

I used the dry brush method on this one.
