    A fine collection of names. Of present-day workers, I would add the name Nick Knight, historically David Bailey has to be among my favorites.

    can't seem to find much on Nick Knight, or maybe his stuff is on the 'banned content' on our server ( I do night shift on my 'day job'). David Bailey's work is really interesting! Especially his method of focus...

    Gilles Bensimon seems a glaring omission in that list

    Danish fashion photog Steen Evald is a great idol for me.

    And my other huge favourite is Peter Lindbergh. He has shot danish model/photographer Helena Christensen several times and a lot of other models. His book, 10 Women, is a GREAT book with lots of B/W (and a few colour) shots of gorgeous supermodels.

    Others are

    David Bailey
    Helmut Newton
    Richard Avedon

    Can't help you. I suspect for many of the top names, having a website is "beneath them". That said, I loved Patrick Demarchelier's website... particularly his personal B&W non-fashion stuff.

    you could also google "the fashion spot" and go to Forums / Creative Team / Photographers, people post their favourite fashion photographers.

    that fashion spot site is good but that 'photographer' Terry Richardson is a mess and needs to die. Or maybe it's that i don't like child porn.
