I'm inspired by photographs not photographers.

For example, a photograph that inspires me is Henri Cartier-Bresson's "Behind the Gare Saint Lazare"

Image

I like his style of not intervening with the enviroment but instead waiting for it to change until everything is right and timing everything perfectly.

I'm inspired by most of his photographs.

Agun I think we all are influenced by photographs but as the thread title says.

Just wanted to clarify. Or though a nice looking female photographer could be.... inspiring. :lol:

Thanks Gordon for making the thread a sticky!

Agun, surely we're all inspired by photographs instead of photographers. But often, photographers produce more than just one inspiring shot. Henri Cartier-Bresson for example is one of my favorite sources of inspiration, because he has so many superb photos. Do I like all of his work? No, but certainly a lot of it.

Thanks everybody for posting your favorite photographers!

Florian Trojer: http://www.floriantrojer.com/ (or, his Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ftphoto/).

Unknown... http://www.flickr.com/photos/10223473@N07/

Both inspire me to make good use of natural light! No big names, I know, but I guess there are very few really big names in aviation photography, that people outside that business may know...

Chase Jarvis - Because he loves to share his knowledge and help people ( see www.creativelive.com to see what i mean)
http://www.chasejarvis.com/


And
Art Wolfe - Because he is a great nature photographer and comes up with cool ideas for collections of photographs. (like his book Vanishing Act)

Another very inspirational source, also much appreciated by the White House, since he's an official photographer for them, is Pete Souza. Great photojournalism, great personalities, great inspiration:

Here are mine:

William Eggleston - studies of smalltown America and pioneer of colour photography.

Stephen Shore - more studies of smalltown America.

I love the way Eggleston and Shore show details or often banal subject matter - it's very evocative of the time and place, and for me these kind of shots are the ones I try and take on holiday rather than the usual tourist hotspots - although I take them too!

Martin Parr - British photographer who again is an expert at capturing and celebrating the often mundane. He cites Eggleston and Shore as inspiration.

Andreas Gursky - German photographer who's incredibly detailed - and incredibly large format photos have an amazing impact.

Michael Fatali - I can personally do without his text, titles and descriptions, but find the work of this US photographer utterly inspirational. He specialises in the Canyonlands of the Southwest USA which are some of my favourite places to visit and photograph. I was particularly chuffed when I walked into Lower Antelope Canyon near Lake Powell in Utah to find the location of some of my favourite examples of his work.

Of Course, I love the work of already mentioned Joe McNally and Chase Jarvis, But the one who ceases to amaze me, is the very flickr popular, Patrick Smith. I'm not usually a big fan of landscape photography, but his photos amaze me on a consistent basis. I almost chocked when i saw that he had actually randomly taken the time to look at and comment on one of my photos. His Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/patrick-smith-photography/

All of these big names do inspire me however I feel the most inspired by the random and unrecognized photographers I run into. People like yourselves who don't travel around the world to find the next best place to shoot, but the places around you. A glimpse into your lives as you see them around your most familiar. That's the most inspiring to me.
