Ooops! You're somehow right, I could have more carefully read and tried
harder to comprehend what had wrote. Buy I think Gary is more a "sloppy
writter" (with your words) than I'm unable to comprehend what I read -
because after the claim, he continues with "...educating people about
[platinum photography and the platinotype]..." not [platinum portraiture],
so I understand the "medium" IS "platinum photography" NOT "platinum
portraiture". Whatever, my original intend was not bashing Gary but checking
whether my opinion about the number of Platinum/Palladium workers is right
or not (I think they're much more than 50 worldwide and even in this list
there should be more than 50 persons who practice in platinum/palladium

I'm not a native English speaker BTW (being a Turkish of Italian origin -
quite a combination!).
