    I am a huge fan of Ansel Adams. Now I also found out about Roman Loranc, whose images are also very to my liking. Do you know more photographers using a similar style for landscapes? I like to use such photos as an inspiration for my work.

    Thanks a lot

    Look at Edward Weston, Robert Adams, Robert Misrach, early John Blakemore, Fay Godwin, Minor White, Thomas Joshua Cooper, John Davies, that's just a start.

    Another vote for Edward Weston, even if you know his work it always helps to take another look! Also going to put two other names out there that might not be so well-known: John Scarlata and David Fokos.

    Steve Sherman's work is pretty shithot, saw it in Louisville opening last Friday and his work is very good.
    If he keeps dedicated and working with the genre , I would put him in the up and coming class of landscape photographers to watch and collect.

    Roman (The Rockstar) Loranc's early work was very much in the same tonal style of AA, his later work very much his own – and just as, or more, beautiful. Not sure they will inspire, but may as well have a look here as well.

    Very nice stuff, quite the Michael Kenna derivative though.

    I'll add Alan Ross, Michael Kenna and Josef Hofflehner (both of the minimalist long exposure genre) are worth a look.

    Also have a look at the other photographers listed on the Ansel Adams site. Many have already been mentioned: http://www.anseladams.com/
