    About 50, if you exclude coffee-table books of pretty pictures but are not by/about a photographer. If you include coffee-table books, it about doubles. I also have 17 issues of this magazine that is so exquisite it should be considered a book - Photographers International. It was a joint publication sponsored by the French and Taiwanese governments. Each issue had about 150 pages, and was as nicely printed as the best photo books, on heavy-weight paper, with only 6-8 pages of ads per issue. I think it is out of print now - if you ever find any copies in secondhand bookstores, I highly recommend picking it up.

    About seventy five. It's time to start thinning the herd out, because I just don't take the time to pour over them as I used to. It's not fair to have them and not use them.

    100-120 on my main bookshelf with perhaps another 30 or 40 scattered around elsewhere. Then there are the books on painting, drawing and sculpture which while they're strictly not "photo books", they're "inspiration for photos" books. Other than a few vital references (AA's series and the like) I have very few technique books because these are mainly dull and uninspiring.

    Just counted and there are somewhere around 70. Lots of stuff I keep going back to like Weston and Atget and Don Hong-Oai and Kenro Izu.

    I have about 50 books, another 25 on the history and another 10 on thoughts of photography and the creative idea.
    From what I see I need to catch up with some of you all!

    Around 110 to 120. Kenna, Eggleston, J. Sexton, Plowden, Kertész, A. Adams, Newhall, Rogovin (a favorite among favorites), Stieglitz, Shapiro, Maeda, Richard W. Brown, Blacklock (Les, Craig & Nadine), E. Porter, Clyde Butcher (autographed), Brandenburg, Yousef Khanfar and others. Then there are the books from personal friends, Ted Nelson, Howard Bond and Bruce Montagne. My favorite books are from my late-uncle, Fred Hazelhoff. He was a nature photographer from The Netherlands. He wrote me encouraging letters regarding photography and I keep them in the books.

    Around 60. Most are by the West Coast School of Photographers - Adams, the Westons, Sexton, Barnbaum, etc.. I keep reviewing them for both inspiration & humility.
