ryukyulife.com: About Me  
   
  Nothing in this world gives me greater pleasure than being off the beaten path with my dogs and camera, stalking wildlife. A quarter of a million shots into becoming a professional photographer I decided the quickest way to get recognized by National Geographic was to start getting my photos and stories published. Articles written by Michael Lynch, along with photo essays, sometimes under the name of RyukyuMike, now appear in magazines around the world. It's a long, hard road up the hill to National Geographic Magazine, littered with folks who crashed and burned trying to get there too fast.
Going slowly and methodically, hitting speed-bumps deliberately and from every possible angle is the route I plan on taking. If I'm 100 years old before I get there, that's alright with me. Living in Okinawa has taught me to be patient. It's the Okinawan way.

SOMEBODY ACTUALLY READS THIS STUFF. THIS WAS IN MY EMAIL:

Hello Michael:

We would be very interested in working with you, and perhaps we can be of help to you on your way to National Geographic.

SHOULD I GO FOR IT ?
