2 names spring to mind. Neither's been mentioned yet, and one's not likely to be either, but he gets my vote.

Eamon McCabe inspired a million guys like me to shoot sport - and did it better than all of us then and since.

The second name was a photographer, but was better known as a master printer. I paid 10 for a 1 hour workshop with him at a "Jessops" show years ago. I learned a huge amount about film and printing in that one hour from that guy, and he inspired me like no other.

His name was Larry Bartlett, and he was the best in the business. He died in 1995, aged just 42.

I've been an admirer of the works of Joe Cornish,Charlie Waite and Lee Frost for a while now and they always have stunning work to show.
I agree with an earlier post too of Roger Fenton from the Crimean War,those photographs are haunting.

My favourite photographer is actually on this site.

Paul Ward otherwise known as park my ferret

I think his work is excellent.

And another (not on this site) is a good friend of mine Chris Taylor who is an excellent music photographer.

This guy takes some beating.

David Noton has been the biggest inspiration to me but I also love the work of Charlie Waite and Joe Cornish. Not very original I know

At the moment Rut Blees Luxembourg and Sugimoto are favourites.

Funny how these old threads get resuscitated....

Anyway, about 18 months ago I said David Ward and now I've had the chance to go on a couple of workshops of his and see first-hand how he creates his pictures, I'm sticking with my choice. Top bloke, too. Same goes for Joe Cornish.

Others whose work has been an influence: Jack Dykinga, Michael Fatali and David Muench....

Interesting Jools. I can see David Ward's influence in your recent 'intimate landscapes'. hadn't realised you'd gone on his workshops. He's obviously an excellent teacher, as well as a great photographer Smile

I'm currently really into the minimal B&W water scapes of David Fokos for what it's worth!

Joe Cornish

Maybe an obvious choice, but I find his mastery of composition very inspirational.

His choice of where to stand when he's working in the same location as you is even better.
