    Too many to list but most are artists although some did manage to cross boundaries and mixed their art with commercial work and had success. One such person would be Helmut Newton.

    No idea if any of them are famous or not but many who inspire me can be found in this list:
    Flickr: Contacts

    flickr is so useful at times ;)
    That said I respect the fact that I don't have much study nor idea of older established photographers and that many of my inspirations are very new to the world of photography (comparativly speaking)

    My opinion:

    HCB - compositional, moment genius.
    Robert Capa - 'Patron Saint' of war photographers.
    James Nachtwey - greatest living photojournalist.
    Steve McCurry - one of the best colour photographers of the last 30 years.
    Robert Doisneau - beautiful Paris street photographer.
    Larry Burrows - amazing, tough Vietnam photographer.
    W. Eugene Smith - flawed genius, beautiful, wrenching photographs.

    Others: Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, Horst Faas, Henri Huet, Don McCullin, Ansel Adams...

    Now I'm offended. :lol:

    You do have to dig through a lot of snapshots on my flickr though. Most of the good stuff is in the 'Miscellaneous' collection.
