Who is it?

Being as were finding out what your favorite subject is to photograph, Im curious to know what photographer out there inspires you? Is there a certain person out there that when you think of or look at his/her work the ideas just pour out

You know, I've been asked this before, and I can't really say that one particular persons' photographs have inspired me solely. Ansel Adams has always been someone to look up to, but I honestly am not inspired by his photographs as much as I am his quotes (as can be seen by the # of quotes of his I have on the main page of this site... hehe). Don't get me wrong, I love his work, but I've never really been inspired by photographs to go take similar photographs... it's always real life that gets me every time.

I've never really paid attention to individual photographers. I've always been inspired by the excellent photography in the National Geographic, though.

Wow. There are so many photographers who have inspired me. Karsch's portraits, to state one of the obvious.

Among current photographic work, James Balog's images are the most inspiring to me.

The passion of photography took strong hold of me when I read "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. Then apart from the examples mentioned there I looked at more of his work. I would say for most part his work has inspired me.

I agree, Sinha. That book is the single best photography book I've ever read. And I have spent a fair amount of time trying to reproduce several of the photos in it.

His other book, Learning to See Creatively, is also excellent.
