In my idle moments I wonder what Man Ray would have done with Photoshop Smile

rab I have to agree with you on Riefenstahl, I love her work, other than that Robert Capa, Sebastian Salgado and Ansel Adams oh and Tom Stoddart, for producing one of the most moving pictures i've ever seen. There are others but these are the ones that jump out

Looking at the previous posts saying there was a surprising number of landscape photographers picked, I love landscape and take mostly landscape work, yet the ones that i really admire tend not to be landscape photographers (apart from ansel adams of course). maybe we pick photographers who aren't in our field?

Interesting thread - favourite photographers as opposed to favourite photographs - undoubtedly many of the world's greatest photographs are taken by non-professional photographers simply for personal pleasure.

When I first started taking shots 8 years ago I was not really influenced by wildlife photographers but by great visionary images made by the likes of Thomas Mangelsen, Mitsuaki Iwago, Galen Rowell, Jim Bradenburg, Kennan Ward, Michio Hoshino and a bloke in Bakewell who took great macro shots.

I don't agree with the comments relating to individual photographers being over-rated - we all have and are entitled to opinions, but getting a personal dig in serves no purpose in such a light hearted thread.

As to my favourite photographers for their ability to capture visionary images of wilderness that IMHO goes to Thomas Mangelsen and the late Galen Rowell for his images and words of wisdom.

Maybe that's because the original poster said :-

But then again we ought to know better than to actually expect you to read the thread first

Sorry for the delayed response - work got in the way (again!)

Like many artists/illustrators Giger uses photographs as a base for his art/work.

Also I think there are a lot of photographers who dabble in art/illustrations too, but I might have just pushed the outside of the envelope a bit...
