Tropical House - The Summer of '88
The "Tropical House" was actually a 20 acre estate that we rented for two weeks on Great Exuma Cay. It was the first of our many trips to the Bahamas Out Islands and when we first fell in love with the island chain as a photo location.
It was July of 1988 and, as fate would have it, two of the greatest all-natural busters of all-time had been discovered in the same month.
Devon Daniels was photographed for the first time on Great Exuma and, though Lisa Phillips had done a little pro posing in England for a couple of weeks leading up to this island trip, this was her first major shoot.
Until now, Lisa's posing had been limited to topless only and it took a little coaxing to get her to open up. But we had time and we were in paradise in the company of beautiful busty babes..Life was good in the summer of '88.
And this trip to the Bahamas was memorable for another reason too. This was the first photo shoot John Graham and I had collaborated on. It proved the beginning of a friendship and partnership that has flourished since..But that's another story.
These "Tropical House" photos were shot in one of the house's two bedrooms which had glass sliding doors opening to the sea.
