The idea for this comes out of an early thread in these forums, and a recent suggestion by Raimios.

Please provide any links or references you can to assist others to discover the work of the people whose photography influences your own, or who has inspired you.

Happy shooting!

Peter Lik

But they're a bit hard to mimic without a 3:1 camera ;-). Best I can do is a very carefully framed then cropped image using my 17-35 knowing that 2/3rds of the photo will disappear in the finished product. This approach has actually improved my landscape photography as it has taught me to stop looking at all scenes as 3:2 and ignoring the photo if it doesn't fit that format.

Chris Orwig
He's a photographer and graphic designer.
Known by his photoshop training videos (at www.lynda.com)

And Henri Cartier-Bresson influences me by his absolutely perfect simplicity.

Well, I'm just learning.

Less & less, I get my inspiration from these tried & true sources as I mostly find myself shooting other subjects ... but still, here they are.

Traditional landscape (the stuff I want to do with tons more time and serious gear)
Joseph Holmes
Kenneth Parker
Guy Tal
Tom Till

Wildlife
Tom Mangelsen
Jim Brandenburg

Conceptual/abstract approach to nature

Very quick overview (by words and pictures) of many important photographers' works can be found at maters of photography ... worth to visit.
And another good place to visit is legends online archive
Coz there are one thread about Annie Leibowitz ... so good perspective for that thread can be found on "legends online"... and there is David Bailey (his "celebrity" collection)

and btw; just forgot to say simply Thank You! for adopting my (was it only me.... no, not at all)idea. Anyway, let's hope this will become an endless source for ideas, the learning point for better pictures...

I taught myself some; I started out wanting a record of my hiking trips. I can't do much of that anymore, but my interest in photography has grown. I've learned a lot from the folks here; the only photo "formal" training I've ever had was with Larry Ditto, a nature photographer based in the Rio Grande Valley. He's fairly well known locally, gets a lot of his work published in Texas Parks & Wildlife, etc. He used to work for US Fish And Wildlife Service and managed several wildlife reserves, most notably Aransas National Wildlife Reserve, where the (extremely) endangered Whooping Crane project was originally based. He's retired from that now, but his knowledge of the outdoors and photography is just amazing. Only problem shooting with this guy is that comparing his pics with yours at the end of the day will frustrate the h*** out of you.

I can't say that there is someone influencing me, as I don't have a "style" of my own yet. I'm just struggling to learn every day...

But I can tell you who made me pick up a camera and press the shutter in the first place, and that was Henri Cartier-Bresson :)

I can say who I like but I am not a professional and as a hobby I do try to learn, but I just have my surroundings and background as inlfuence.

Then I can say what photographers I like and I would like to shoot like:

-Aleksandr Rodchenko and Kertesz (he influenced Bresson btw).
-Man Ray and Brassai

Alive
-pieter ten hoopen

everything influences me.
I don't know if I should be happy or sad.

But
I really like Phil Borges
I've always been intrigued by Josef Sudek
Michal Macku is the person who made me believe in photography. I really admired, and still admire him. Great artist.
I also like emil schildt a lot.
emil schildt (nudity warning!) I hope he gets very rich from photography, and gets enough credit in art community.

Oh! And Gregory Colbert! A very complete conceptual work. I envy him with all my heart.

Internet has opened up the world of photography for me. It is inspiring to see, read and learn off the many forums like this one, NPN and Naturescapes. But I do get inspired by Freeman Patterson as well as John Shaw. I visit this National Geographic.
blog very often to see some inspiring work.

Last but not the least, I respect Henri Cartier-Bresson.
