Here's a selection from our portraits... "PoPsie" did a lot of portrait work and here's one of my personal faves. She actually did 2 sittings and we have about 7 different poses but this is my fave.

Enjoy !

Nice pix Musicchef!

Do you have one of the Sweet Inspirations or Dee Dee Warwick?

Haven't stumbled across either of them yet, but I'm still digging thru the archive.

Your pictures continue to amaze this ageing soul fan, Musicchef.
Of course, I'm waiting for a Mary Wells picture with bated breath. The Queen of Motown was such a stunner in the 60s. She remains my favourite soul singer.....along with Martha, Kim, Brenda etc. etc.!!
How can I buy any of these pics, Chef? There are dollars in my wallet ready to be sent to you.
David.

Be careful David... Our prices may be a bit steep for the average fan.. I've scared off a few people already heh. We are trying to resurrect a long dead estate and that takes a lot of $$$. We realize that most people aren't willing to make that commitment to us and we understand... "PoPsie" didn't release his stuff commercially and we now see why... But if you want to discuss this more off the forum, contact me at musicchef@myway.com

Thanks

Beautiful Aretha shot ...

Musicchef, you could have a range of prices; some for professional duplication (newspapers, magazines, books), another for fans just wanting it for their personal collection.

great idea, Sue... I'm trying to get "PoPsie's" son to budge, but he's set on the pricing. I've looked around on the web for the same type of photos in the same era and he's right... he's actually WAY low in the pricing. They're some photographers out there that are charging over $1,200.00 per print for 11 x 14's... YEOWCH !

Speaking of great photos from that era, former 60's Hit Parader editor Don Paulsen has a site at www.greatmodernpictures.com He has some nice photos, (many I'm sure a lot of us are familiar with) for sale , $200.00 is his standard price , I believe.
By the way , Musicchef, thanks for posting all of these shots- they're wonderful
