    Default Who is your inspiring photographer?

    Wonder if some of you have one or couple of photographers who inspire you with his/her works. Perhaps you would like to share with the rest of us to inspire us as well.

    I personally like Sam Abell. There's a write up of him in this link:

    Interesting. For me, Sam Abell, Michael Yamashita, Frans Lanting, Steve McCurry, Jodi Cobbs.

    Hi Andy,

    No wonder your pics are inspiring too. Makes me want to go out and shoot around Singapore! I like your photos taken at Changi Airport especially!

    me got several - Ansel Adams (for his pioneering work and landscapes), Steve McCurry (for his journalistic stuff), James Nachtwey (for his documentary works), Terry Richardson (for showing me that photography isn't all about the biggest and best cameras), and also a little known NYC cab driver called David Bradford (who demonstrates that photographers come from all walks of life).

    Thank you mjjphoto, what you see is only a modest collection. I wish I have the budget to scan in more pictures so I could change it occasionally.

    I've placed this thread in the wrong forum (Nikon) and it is now in the General Discussions.

    Thank you moderator for correcting.

    Please continue to contribute!

    Like to add:

    John Kaplan who won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography.

    Take a look at one of his projects: Surviving Torture.

    You may not see life in safe and secure Singapore the same again.
