Since the last update, we've had Katrina and more happen, so before we get out the latest update via email, here's some info.

First, we're still working on bringing the premium memberships for photographers back online via PayPal payments along with that will mean that "ALL" prior premium status (Photographers only!) photogs will revert back to free status very soon--though we'll give you a window to join up again for premium status. The easiest thing to do is to upgrade to Lifetime status and never worry about it again.

Second, many have asked to provide special pages to help folks out with Katrina--because this is a national disaster and not limited to one family or group, we prefer to let the national level relief agencies handle this--in this case just click on the link for the Red Cross on one of the many banners found on GG. Again, we prefer to let the national level folks handle this--I too have family affected by Katrina as most of you know and I'm sure it would not be fair to just single them out here on GG to others, so we are sticking with the Red Cross for now.

Third, I will cover more in the upcoming email update, but please support this site by purchasing all your Amazon.com products from us--this helps us grow and provide you more. This is almost a record month for us and a few more purchases will help us reach that goal--this also makes us look good to potential sponsors so we can get more solid sponsorships and remove the more not-so sponsored ads--don't ask, just help the community the best that you can by supporting Amazon.com and all our sponsors.

When I recommend books it's either because I own them personally, have ordered one like the soon to be collector's item Four Inches (see below), I now own Four Inches and the Perilli Calendar book on top of a few new others that I like. *If you don't see the book cover above each discription, hit refresh....

Please purchase at least one of the books below to support this community. You can also click on the links then once on Amazon go search DVDs, tools, cameras, etc., as they all will go toward crediting this community. All your purchases on Amazon.com helps support the GG community and work to improve what we can give back to you, such as contests, better servers and more. Thanks for your support, see below, rg sends!<center><table width="634" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="3"><td valign="top" width="200"><font size="2" face="Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Swiss,SunSans-Regular">

Murrian is a controversial photographer known for photographing young models (but not as young as David Hamilton's subjects) and the word is this book represents the female form at its finest with dignity and elagance. With over 201 plates, this book is filled with inspiring work.</font></td>

If you're into "legs" then this is your book, however you'll see entire bodies not just legs. From Amazon, "...Unlike other compilations devoted to praising a particular body part, this collection showcases the entire woman, inviting us to see the whole person and not just the fetish object...and Dave has done all the footwork.

"Since the early 80s, Bettina Rheims has been one of the most sought-after contemporary photographers. She came to fame with unusual portraits of women and female nudes. Both celebrities and unknowns posed for her in stagings of glamour and fame, of fashion, beauty, sex, and seduction...."</font></td>

"Swiss photographer Bruno Bisang has been on a life-long artistic quest to document the unending, multi-faceted varieties of the feminine mystique. His photographs are more than mere idealizations of the female form. They are expressions of Bisang's desire to record the independent spirit of his subjects - international models and celebrities such as Claudia Schiffer, Tyra Banks, and Monica Bellucci. This collection of exquisitely observed nude studies is a luminous distillation of essence and form, "a record of women's radiance" that expresses Bisang's belief that "Every woman possesses a fount of femininity and unique sensuality"."</font></td>

A little erotic photography doesn't hurt anyone. You can even add "eroticism" to glamour. I'm also working on my own book of erotic photography, but for now, I'm going to order this book--besides, it's filled with ideas and I'm sure it's inspiring and motivating!

"Published just last spring to follow the runaway success of Couples and Men, teNeues introduced a third collection of beautifully composed, highly erotic images from acclaimed photographer Stefan May. Now the stunning black and white photographs that revealed the beauty, sensuality, and grace of women&amp;#146;s bodies are available in an exquisitely produced, slip-cased collector&amp;#146;s edition." </font></td>

This book is brand new and will be a collector's item and it also has a forward by Elton John. I just received my copy and it's tucked away in my photography book collection--don't ask to borrow it! (grin)

Shot by women photographers like Ellen von Unwerth and featuring models like Christina Aguilera, Rachel Hunter, Kate Moss, Serena Williams and many others, this book helps the Elton John Aids Foundation.

Models, this is a great book for you too!</font></td>

The most sought after calendar of glamour photography, a collector's tradition started in 1963. Features photography by Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Peter Lindergh, Herb Ritts, Norman Parkinson, Bruce Weber, and Annie Leibovitz who photographed the world's most beautiful women, including Iman, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and many others.

The Pirelli calendar is exclusive only to VIP's and it's customers, but you can now own the book and I do, it's in my collection as of this month.

Here's another model's inpirational book too.</font></td>

Jock Sturges newest book shows you about the process, from laying out the shoot to the models--this is awesome if you want to know how and why?

"Over the past decade, Jock Sturges has produced an incomparable body of work that revels in the beauty of the human form and celebrates the naturist spirit.
