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.

Thank you Martin for all you did for our industry and for my family.
