Do you know any good photographers?

Asked by kayyyyleigh (404 points ) March 16th, 2010

for my photography class I am supposed to research two photographers and my assignment is to not recreate the picture but to use their styles to take the pictures for my next roll or film. I have looked up a few, but none have really caught my attention. If you have any ideas of an original photographer it would be greatly appreciated:]

Andy Goldsworthy- More of an artist than a photographer but could give you ideas for something very different.

Annie Leibovitz

Definitely Andrew Einhorn . . . He actually has a great persuasive personality to get his subjects agreeing to be photographed in their birthday suits. . . . and this is clean, artful photography.

Another vote for Ansel Adams. I absolutely love him. Andy Goldsworthy’s art is kind of photography. I don’t know how you’d classify it. The photography is not what’s amazing, but it is the only way to see his art…so the photographs are important.

Galen and Barbara Rowell, The best photographers, specializing in the Sierras, both died in a plane crash in 2002, yet their marvelous photos live on.
