Elsewhere on this site you will be looking at old photos and ordering new prints "made to order" with the technologies of today.  In this section you will find only "true vintage prints" made at the time of the shoot.  Some of them will be 40 years old or more! <p>
Vintage prints are usually more expensive simply because they <b>are old</b>.  The best description we can point to is this from Hakelbury.co.uk : "The definition of vintage is not quite uniform, but in its strictest version, the photographer should have photographed and printed from that negative within one year. As we get further from the negative date, the window of "vintage" can often be expanded to cover five or even ten years. The price for a vintage photograph can be about four to six times as much as the price for a modern or later print." <p> There are hardly any b&w darkrooms around and today's technology doesn't even use the same kind of paper or chemicals to achieve a print.  So, it is easy enough to see that to a collector vintage prints are highly prized because they "ain't makin' any more". <p>  Many of these "true vintage" photos were taken by R Scott Hooper and printed in his darkroom right after they were shot.  But many of them came from other sources that he collected over the years.  Some are from the Las Vegas News Bureau (where he worked for a time) and others came from Las Vegas publications like the Vegas Visitor and Panorama tabloids, who used them for publicity.   They have been carefully stored in our archives, kept in cool darkness away from the elements, which is why they are still in great shape after all these years. The prints will all have been printed by hand, usually within the same year they were taken, and often right after the actual shoot.<p><font color=33CCCC>The image displayed here is an actual photo of the print available, and, there is only one like it.  Taking pictures of pictures, especially glossy prints is not an easy task because of reflections.  But, it is the only way to show you the entire print and cropping and condition.  These vintage prints are mostly in very good condition, and if there <b>are,</b> any real imperfections we will point them out in the text. </font>

Vegas Retro Mugs



For the first time,  the famous photographs of legendary Las Vegas based Playboy award winning photographer Robert Scott Hooper are now available on quality mugs at an inexpensive price.  We didn't know whether to call these mugs "B" Cups,  or "C" or "D" Cups, or just "Oh, what a beautiful morning.."   We finally settled on "C", even though these cups are far from average. These "fun mugs"  feature the "Best Breasts in the West" in various sizes and shapes. A great gift item for the bachelor who can enjoy his morning coffee with the beauty of the female form.

Canvas prints offer their own, unique esthetic to photography collectors and photographic artists. The elegant look of a painting containing texture and depth and a beautiful photograph combine to create a new art. It is difficult to express how truly impressive these canvas prints are without holding one in your hand and seeing it up close. They have the feel of an original oil painting, with the incredible detail of a photograph. The texture creates depth that draws you into the image in a way that normal photographic prints do not. And canvas prints do not need to be framed with protective glass so the image can be seen clearly without having to deal with glares. These giclee prints reproduced on stretched canvas are done with a high-resolution inkjet printer using a UV pigmented ink set which produces highly archival art. The acid-free canvas has been treated to neutralize its natural acidity in order to protect fine art and photographic prints from discoloration and deterioration. With proper care and elimination of direct sun light, your canvas print has the potential to last a lifetime.<p>

<center>These fine art photographs are from a series titled "Miss Priss".   Photographed in the early '70's (1970's) at Tule Springs (now Floyd Lamb State Park) at the outskirts of Las Vegas.  Model Janet Boyd was a Hooper favorite which he shared with famed artist of the Silver Slipper Bordello Paintings, Julian Ritter.  Ritter used her as a model many times and one of his most expensive and famous paintings is of Janet.

<p>The series was published in an English men's magazine, Mayfair. 

<p><i>"In the early seventies there was this whole 'antique', soft look going on.  I wanted to do something in B&W and create a whole series taking the 'Storyville Portraits' outside.  Janet was the perfect model.  She is tall (nearly 6') and long legged and had such a perfectly lush, womanly figure.  But the best thing about her was the way she could transform in front of the camera.  Whatever character or scene you asked her to do, she just became it before your very eyes!  And with such grace.  She's the only woman I know who could step through cow dung with her toes pointed as if it was a dance!"</i>  RSH

<p>Buy one 8x10 print or take your pick of any six for 5x7 prints.  The series is perfect for decorating a bathroom or bedroom.  Photos are printed as shown with a self matte and antique look.  8x10's have an image size of approx 5x7 and 5x7's have an image size of approx. 4x5. </center>
