<p>My name is lzhar Perlman and I was born in Israel.</p><p>In my youth, I&nbsp;had a career as a musician, advertising, and artistic photographer.</p><p>In my early twenties, I moved into business and dealt with different commodities. Office machinery, Hi-Fi equipment, watches etc.</p><p>Throughout my business experience, I&nbsp;was intimately involved in sales, sales management and delivered very successful sales training to most life insurance companies in Israel.</p><p>Later I co-founded a business that dealt with testing manpower called U-Man, and the business became such a&nbsp; success that it turned into a franchise system that grew in three years to include franchises in most of the European countries. I relocated, with my business, to Switzerland.</p><p>Two years later I sold the business and moved to Florida, USA. Where I established another franchising system that dealt with weight loss.</p><p><strong>B</strong>ack in Switzerland, I developed the business into a sixty-seven franchise network.</p><p>Visiting Portugal, I fell in love with the country and its people and is living there ever since.</p><p>I shared this passion to Portugal through my photography.</p><p>My photographs were published in books, albums, postcards and magazines in Portugal and the USA.</p><p>I live&nbsp;in the countryside, surrounded by beautiful nature, accompanied by my wife, Solange, and our three dogs.</p>
