When I was a 16 year old college drop-out, I decided that the Secret of Happiness was very simple -- Find something that you would do as a hobby if you did not have to work for a living,and then find someone who will pay you to do it.
For my 16th birthday, my sister bought me a subscription to Playboy, and I figured that being a professional glamour photographer was not a bad hobby. When I returned to college at the age of 18,I majored in Professional Photography at the College of Graphic Arts and Photography of the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).
One day I reached the point where I wasn't just being paid to photograph nude women -- women were actually paying me to take pictures of them with no clothes on! They ranged from professional strippers (ecdysiasts) who needed publicity photos to housewives having a mid-life crisis.Ultimately, $125.00 per session was still not enough to both compensate for the grief and pay the rent each month. <sigh!>
Eighteen years after starting my freshman year for the second time (i.e., at the age of 34) I finally completed the requirements for a Bachelor of Technology in System Software Science from the College of Applied Science and Technology at RIT. By then, I was married for the second time and living in Michigan. But that's a different Tell.:-)
While I have a right to display artistic photographs of the nude human form that I made over twenty years ago, I also have the responsibility to preserve the Adult Conspiracy (the Secret of How to Summon the Stork).
Thanks to the recently enacted Communications Decency Act (CDA), and the high volume of traffic on this Web site, this RoadBlock has been erected.
That is all I have to say. -=DAH=- 18-Jul-96
