Hard Time Cupid gets his Valentine’s Day Happy On

Point. And. Shoot!

When we first published this, we had no idea about the provenance on this delicious vintage-looking image.

Patrick Mulcahey informs us that the model is John Pruitt, a favorite of Colt Publishing. Gerard Koskovich ids the photographer as Jim French, aka Rip Colt. Thanks, Guys!

    I imagine it’s a Colt image, since it’s John Pruitt, one of Colt’s classic and most popular models.

  2. Thanks for the 411, Patrick!

  3. Definitely a Jim French (aka Rip Colt) photo. Here’s another shot from the same series: http://jimfrench.com/acquire_studies.html#Anchor-49575.

  4. jordy : asked Gerard before seeing Patrick’s response above but will repost what Gerard relayed:

    Thanks for the alert, Tamara. I see that someone has posted the identity of the model and has suggested that it’s a Colt photo. Even without that tidbit, I would have said it was a photo by Jim French (founder of Colt) based on the style of the image. And indeed, here’s another shot from the same series: http://jimfrench.com/acquire_studies.html#Anchor-49575.

    thanks all, your t.
