It's never been my ambition to be "published" since my early days in photography. I was always more interested in making as much money in the profession as I could rather than seeking out my next published shot. Ironically, I was still getting published all the time anyway, but that was a bonus as far as I was concerned. Thus the reason for my dearth of published material in those years. I will confess that now that I have been published in National Geographic magazine that I'm working toward getting more of my images gracing the "Daily Dozen" column and I hope that soon enough I will have a "Photo of the Day" as chosen by the readership. That's my new goal.
