    Don't put yourself down and don't be foolish.
    I have had quite a few students who have had heroes in areas they wanted to work in. They always said the same as you. Every single one that I talked in to writing got a positive response - and quite often an invitation to meet.
    Write him a nice letter - if you send it care of his publisher he'll get it.
    Because people are always in awe of their heroes they don't get many letters - only ones begging for stuff. All the celebrities and authors I have ever known have loved getting nice letters showing appreciation for them and their work. A nice letter telling him what an inspiration he is to you will get a response I'm sure. Just don't say things like 'I'd like to meet you', 'give me a job' or things like that.
    Go for it. You have nothing to loose and a lot to gain ;-)

    (Besides he was just like you once...)

    The last time I managed to string together 4 sentences and email them to one of my 'idols' in 'Photoworld' I got 10 paragraphs or advice, hints and tips back. ;)
