Who Inspires You?

For me there are many different photographers that I have looked up to over my career. Each has inspired me in different ways and sent me on different paths. Ansel Adams and Edward Weston have always inspired me to get out and enjoy nature. Photographers like Bill Cahill, Jack Andersen, and Michael West have inspired me to pushed what I thought was possible in the realm of commercial photography. Dave Hill, John Keatley, and Chase Jarvis are also very amazing photographers that have influenced the way I think and look at photography especially in my personal work. And then there is Joyce Tenneson, for me she is the reason that I do fine art photography. Her amazing work with large format Polaroid is hands down some of my favorite fine art photography. I was lucky enough to meet Joyce at a Brooks Instituteguest speaker function about a year and a half ago and it will always be a moment that I will remember, she is a wonderful lady, full of life and passion. This is image one of my favorites.

Who inspires you? Is there a photographer out there that changed the way you take images? A photographer that pushed you to try new and exciting things, or just someone you look up to? I would like to hear your thoughts.
