I had way in the past heard of his name and how it was equated with "Glamour Photography"...but I never gave him much notice. Then only a year or so ago I bought one of his books at a second hand store. Great photographs and also insightful. I had thought of passing on a message to him in appreciation...but then forgot about doing that. Sometime after getting the book I found his website...but neglected to send an email.
Now it's too late.
Lesson to be learned? If you come across the works of a photographer and you are taken by them, do take the time to tell the author you appreciated his work. You may or may not get a response but I do know that we ALL like to get these words of acknowledgement.
