i would have to say my favorite photographer (of the famous photographers i'm even aware of) is garry winogrand. i'll link a few of my favorite shots he's taken: photo 1 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4 <----(unexplainably funny.. guy had a great sense of humor) photo 5

he is my hero.

anyway, take a look at them, fall in love with the man's style, do whatever you want :) i'd like some quick links to some of your favorite photographs as well ;)

haha, the zoo one is hilarious, this guy is pretty good with the lighting too. Very casual style, yet professional.

I haven't studied all that much, but as of right now, my favorite would have to be Diane Arbus.

I went to an Arbus gallery at the Getty, which also featured Winogrand, and someone else. It was based on the three photographer's photographs from the seventies. I very much enjoyed both Arbus, who I went to see, as well as Winogrand, but didn't like the third guy very much, which is why I can't remember his name. :)

i think this guy is a genius. Was fortunate enough to stumble across his gallery in San Fran in December.

i'm not sure who posted it first, but i'm pretty sure i got this link from these very forums sometime in early winter:

both are good (and obviously by the same person), but i think the second might have slightly more content.

My favourites would land somewhere around Robert Mapplethorpe's pornographic flower pictures //www.mapplethorpe.org/ and Keith Carter's flights of whimsy


Neither would go down well around here, I suspect and would be firmly in the 3s

Also Irving Penn

My favorite photographer is John Shaw. He is my inspiration for outdoor photography. Van

One of my recent favorites is David Lachapelle. His photos are so off-beat and colorful, but as a warning to those who don't care to see it, his site does contain some nudity.

Looking at Kieth Carter's link above posted by Gordon is a bit inspiring, another "off the beaten trail" technique. I like it quite a bit. Thanks for posting it! :-)

Margaret Bourke-White.

I love her early large scale industrial images as well as her powerful Holocaust photojournalism.
