Former Penthouse photographer, Suze Randall, was a pioneer in porn.

While many women in the porn industry are used to being in front of the camera, Suze worked behind the lens. Susan “Suze” Randall is known for being a pioneer for women in both the field of photography and pornography. As one of the first female staff photographers for both Playboy and Hustler, she broke into the male dominated world of erotic magazines. It was during the 1980′s, that she became one of the earliest female porn producers, paving the way for other women to follow. From there, she went on to provide Penthouse with photos that exhibited her erotic style and labeled her as one of the world’s leading erotic photographers for more than 35 years.

Working first as a nurse, then as a fashion model in the early 1970′s, Randall gained attention for the erotic photographs she took of her fellow models. In 1972, she played an au pair in Éric Rohmer’s film, Love in the Afternoon. It was after this acting experience that she gave up modelling and devoted her time to erotic photography. She became the first female to shoot Page 3 for The Sun newspaper, which is a feature that consists of a large photograph of a topless female glamour model usually published on the newspaper’s third page.

Her breakthrough came when she spotted the pinup model Lillian Müller and photographed her for Playboy. Müller was chosen as Playmate of the Month in August 1975 and subsequently Playmate of the Year in 1976. In a pictorial in Playboy’s May 1976 issue, Randall was both photographer and model. She went on to shoot a much more explicit self-portrait in a June 1977 Hustler pictorial. When Randall started with Penthouse, her work was already well known and was admired by thousands of readers worldwide. Many of these photos can now be found in the Filthy Gorgeous galleries and auctions.

Suze’s daughter was eager to follow in footsteps and start a career in erotic photography as well. Holly Randall was 20 years old and a student at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, when Suze asked her to help her with the family run website. In 2004, Holly became interested in video production and started directing and producing all of movies for the website, Suze.net and by 2005, her work had graced the covers of every major American adult magazine. She has also gone on to write several books including, Erotic Dream Girls.
