“Bunny Yeager, a famous model and photographer, poses a model at Cypress Gardens, 1952.  The background was painted, the sand was real.  Hundreds of photographers were there for the program.”  LS

Bunny Yeager started out as a model then switched to being a photographer, gaining fame as the only female pin-up photographer of the 50′s. She was based in Miami, Florida and may be best known for her photographs of model Bettie Page shot in the mid 1950′s in Miami.  One of Yeager’s photographs of Page was purchased and published by Playboy in 1954, putting both photographer and model in the national spotlight.  Yeager was born in 1929 and still has a studio gallery in Miami.
