I recently came across some gorgeous photos and immediately did some research to find out more about this gentleman. Apparently I'm way late in the game on finding out about him (but better late than never, right?), his name is Slim Aarons. He was a well noted American photographer throughout the 50's, 60's and 70's. He was known for "photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places" and that is exactly what is depicted in his photos.
He has several books available HERE. These are all now on my "must haves" list.
