Bunny Yeager was one of the first pinup photographers to work outdoors, in natural light, and subsequently became one of the most successful and prolific pinup photographers of the 1950s and 1960s. Yeager photographed a then little-known Bettie Page over 15 sessions, between March and December, 1954. Several of these images would run in "Playboy" magazine, paving the way to Page's later stardom.
