A little about me: My interest in photography was born at the top of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite when I met Ansel Adams (click to read full story) while visiting as a boy in 1955. He told me about the basics of photography right then and there while loading big 8" by 10" negatives into his view camera. I remember walking back down the path thinking that someday I wanted one of those cameras. That was many years ago and lots has happened since then.
Lately, I have been actively taking lots of photos while living in England the last few years. I also spent some time in Spain, Mallorca and Gran Canaria in 2010 as well as a visit to Dubai in 2009. My most recently published photos were in Gramophone. The last 25 years I have been working in vacation ownership resorts in Europe and America as a means to travel, make money and take pictures!! But my most active period was in the 1970's while living in New York City. There I became a prolific freelance photographer while studying at the International Center of Photography. My clients included the Museum of Modern Art, The American Museum of Natural History, The Lutheran Council of America as well as many other institutions in New York City. I have worked with Directors at the Metropolitan Opera resulting in publications in The New York Times. My photographs have also been published in Newsweek, Dance Magazineand Opera News, The London Observer, TheChristian Science Moitorand The Los Angeles Times, to name but a few. My photographs reside in many private collections. They include the National Portrait Gallery ofGreat Britain.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers http://www.responsabledecomunidad.com
