World famous ‘Tennis Girl’ photographer dies :-(

Hey Everyone,

First off I should say a big thank you to Mike Patterson, one of my facebook friends and fellow photographer whos blog I was taking a peek at today when I found out about this.  Mikes website and blog is located at http://www.mikepattersonblog.com Mike is a talented photographer from Galway in Ireland.

When I was a lad like many others I am sure I fell in love with a poster, it was a simple poster of a girl walking up to a tennis net lifting her skirt with her hand on her bum:-)

Remember I said I was a young, impressionable lad – Funnily enough this poster and the good work done by the good folks at Playboy was one of the reasons I wanted to become a photographer – who would know what it would all lead to.

Recently news came thru that the photographer – Martin Elliot had passed away.
