Stan Shuttleworth – Photographer
An American wedding photographer shared our passion for longhaired ladies and began to look for models in the 1950s. During the following 30 years he created some of the most beautiful photo collections ever done on this rare topic. He became a legendary photographer who understood as nobody else to catch the fascinating beauty of long hair with the lenses of his camera. Stan Shuttleworth passed away in the 1980s, but he lives on in his unique works.
Mary Tucker, born 1923, became one of Stan’s favorite models. Her luxuriant hair inspired him to many photo topics over more than 30 years. Mary, too, was a client of the famous George Michael hair care salon in New York City and won a prize for the longest hair in America with her incredibly 89 inches (225 cm) mane in the 1981 “National Enquirer” magazine competition.
This rare color shot was taken at her first photo session for Stan in 1953.
Glendeane M. Tadich (Stan's model "A" aka "Ava McKenzie") was another one of Stan’s first models he found when he worked the whole San Bernardino/ California county as a part time wedding photographer. This picture is from his second book “The Modern Styles for Women with Long Hair” which has been printed 1954 in Redlands/ California.
Stan Shuttleworth was born on January 27, 1916. He lived most of his life in Redlands, San Bernardino County, California.
Glendeane and Mary Tucker (at the right swing) were close friends for many years. This picture was printed among others in a small, anonymous magazine named “Long Hair Beauties”, which was published by Stan Shuttleworth about 1960. By the way, most of the pictures here are shown as clear as never before due to careful scanning and editing.
Sylvia Edwards Stan met her somewhere in the States 1958. She was a beautiful, young girl attending with her aunt and Stan convinced her to pose for a photo session. This photo was printed in “Long Hair Beauties”, the private edition of Stan's photos.
