    All,

    I am interested in learning what photographers inspire you in your work. If possible, please provide website address is available.

    Those that inspire me most are:

    Jack Dykinga (US) http://www.dykinga.com/
    Joe Cornish (UK) http://www.joecornish.com/
    Ken Duncan (AU) http://www.kenduncan.com/
    Andris Apse (NZ) http://www.andrisapse.com/

    I'm looking forward to your responses and to looking at new photography websites.

    Thanks,
    Robert M. Teague

    good thread ...

    my favourites are

    1) michael kenna www.michaelkenna.net for his amazing vision
    2) Fay Godwin www.faygodwin.com for all-round amazing work
    3) barry thornton www.barrythornton.com although I dont i find his pictures overly exciting, i admire him for his technical expertise and the amazing ability to share without sounding overtechnical or confusing - sad that this wont happen anymore.
    4) Gordon Stettinius www.eyecaramba.com for his incredible toy-eye

    there are loads more and too many to list

    It's already been linked so I won't add another Robert Capa not only for his war pictures but also his time in Hollywood.

    Although I do not shoot portraits, and this photographer has never 'influenced' my photography, I have always admired the portrait work of Yousuf Karsh.

    His most famous is probably his wartime portrait of a defiant Winston Churchill.

    Most of my heroes are no longer active.
    Eugene Atget - Just because he knew exactly where to place his tripod.
    Edward Weston - Simultaneous simplicity and complexity in his composition.
    Walker Evane - The FSA Walker Evans because of his ability to capture the sense of place.

    Me, of course, :rolleyes: because I can't wait to see what I am going to do next.....

    Being primarily a large format portrait photographer, my list would have to include:

    George Hurrell
    Clarence Sinclair Bull
    Eugene Robert Richee
    Laszlo Willinger

    I know, hollywood portraits are full of lighting taboos for the classic way of thinking, but these guys had chops! (not to mention great gigs). It was the work of these guys (and others of the era) that inspired me to move from medium to large format format for portraiture.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
