    Who's your favorite photographer who also has a web site?

    I always like to be inspired by others, that's one of the reasons why I hang out on this board.

    I would like to see the works of some of your favorite photographers. They are a huge source of inspiration for me. I have tried to find some links, but for some reason it's easier to find the find web sites of digital artists than photographers.

    Thanks for your help, it's really appreciated.

    I agree with Sebastian, good thread Joe.. Also, good call Sebastian, Irakly is a fantastic photographer.. I need to try and find my link to PhotoWilliam's (he spells it differently though site). He does some of the best "portrait" work I've ever seen.

    I'll have to take a look and see what I've got saved at home. I don't have many photography links here at work.

    "This one is my buddies' from college, he usues the collodion process, a 150 + year old process, very hands on. His site is: http://www.collodion.com/"

    this guy is my new favorite person. i thought i was hardcore still shooting *film*, and he's doing freaking collodion?!?!?!?! i didn't even learn that in college - we just learned palladium, van dyke brown, cyanotype, and gum bichromate! this guy is HARDCORE!

    "Others I like include: http://www.davidburnett.com, David Burnett is a journalist who has seen a lot, he uses a Holga a lot."

    i didn't realize he's the one that took that photo of mary slaney. LOVE his political holga work! how cool is THAT?!?!?!


    and thanks for the nod!

    I can see...

    Knowing your work, I can see why you like his! His lanscapes are pretty fantastic. [Have you ever though about trying 2.25x2.25?]

    Gerry Widen also turned me on to this guy...

    I was pretty inspired. Especially because of how much he's asking for the prints! Ka-ching......

    You should this process in person! Cool Stuff! You literally "make" your film.

    Oh for those college days, I loved doing cyanotypes, and bichromates!

    Nod! You Bet!

    This relates to Brians post the Collodian process very difficult and forces the photographer to take a different approach. If anyting is the opposite of digital capture this is it. I posted this link a few months ago. Collodian Process Info This Link describes the process better.

    I Have a Few.....

    Michael Fatali....this guy is simply amazing.

    http://www.fatali.com/index.php

    Two of my favorites from Colorado:

    The famous John Fielder.

    http://www.johnfielder.com/

    Jesse Speer, I really enjoy his work, and I REALLY enjoy his photo adventures. Jesse has a few websites actually, including one of, if not the best, site on Rocky Mountain Nat'l.
    Here is the link to his galleries though:

    Some of my favorite

    http://www.theoallofs.com/

    His book helped me develop my photographic eye. http://mountainlight.com/rowell.gr.html

    http://lanting.com


    All of these photographers use Calypso, Inc as their printer and create beautiful prints from any type of camera.

    I'm quite certain he is not my favorite, but he is a friend of mine and he does decent work. Also his website design is very nice.

    Galen Rowel

    I'm a big fan of the late Galen Rowel. As an outdoorsy type person, Galen's photography always evokes an emotion in me. I feel like I'm there. He's not just relying on a beautiful scene to make a picture. Instead, he's bringing you into his world.

    I'm also a bit burned out on pictures and sites on the web. I see to much reliance on beauty as opposed to good photography. I see people doing great work but getting overlooked because they don't have a beatiful subject. I also see people going gaga over someones picture of a gorgeous paid model posed nude in front of a window. This same picture would be overlooked if it was just an "average" joe (or josephine). Similarly, I see much arty work that inevitably starts to look the same. I just don't know anymore...

    I'm sure what I'm looking for is out there to give me new inspiration. I just haven't found it, or made it up; yet.

    Mike, at the crossroads of his photography.

    Thanks those who added even more links, highly appreciated!

    A few I did have:

    http://www.photographymuseum.com/scottmutter.html (Scott Mutter) Very unique way of combining B&W photographs (a must see!)

    http://www.azfoto.com/galleries.html (Dominique Bonnucelli) Who says a horizon always has to be straight?

    http://www.dunas.com/homepage.html (Jeff Dunas) Voted Best People Photographer in the International Photography Awards Competition 2003

    http://www.beckhamdigital.co.uk/galleries.htm (Carol and Barry Beckham) Interesting if you want to retouch your images in Photoshop or make a montage.

    it was a wonderul exhibit...I have to go back and see it again

    Off topic: Liz, Steve, John, etc:

    Is there a way I can "save" this thread to my account here without saving it to my hard disc? In case more people add to it later. It's taking me a while to look at all these links and instead of bookmarking them all furiously I just thought there might be a way to "save" it somehow. Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Great thread, I'm impressed.

    Hey Rick

    How about clicking on "Favorites" at the top of your browser while you are viewing this thread, and select "add to favorites."? The url will bring you to this thread. One url for all the posts. You can always rename the link so you can find it easily.

    What Lara Said...

    Make this page a "Favorite" in you Internet Expoxler, or what ever browser you are using.
    But go in and edit it, and call it PR.com Fav Photographers List or something.
    I do it all the time with forum type pages.
