    My favorite pastime lately is looking at other photographer's work. I really enjoy looking at Brianna Graham's galleries. Who is your favorite?

    Well, I absolutely agree that I love to look at other photographers art. I think that's a large part of my (in my eyes) relatively quick improvement in photography, because through it I am able to learn how photos can look, and it helps me develop a knowledge of what I like.

    One of my favorite places to go is to the FM boards. These boards are great, but there are many more professional wedding photographers there thus, a more consistent flow of new work.

    as for who my favorites there are... I would have to go with "Unblinkable" (whoever that is) "Sam Hassas" and "Evan Blaines"

    Jeff Ascough is one of my fave wedding photographers. He coins himself a wedding photojournalist. He uses mainly ambient light to take his pictures. Truly amazing stuff

    ^-- pretty sure he's featured in the Masters of Wedding Photography DVD. Some good stuff. The DVD is excellent, some really talented wedding photographers featured on it.

    One of my favorites would definitely be Simon Chaput.

    Absolutely fantastic. A lot of unique stuff in there, including his shots of nudes (incredible) and some interesting angles at New York.

    Robert Capa is definitely one of my favorite all time photographers...
    I'm surprised no one has brought up Joe Mcnally.

    I would have to say that the youngster...Lara Swift is my favorite. Her artistic vision and style is amazing.

    I can't narrow it down to one.

    Sometimes I really enjoy Chase Jarvis' work, but for the most part, he's hit and miss. I'm VERY impressed at how well he brands his work though, so I keep an eye on him.

    For an actual body of work, Erwin Olaf, Gregory Crewdson, Eric Ogden. so many more, but all this ing is getting tiring lol.
