    Jacques Henri Lartigue may be my all-time favorite. Certainly though, there are others.

    I missed Jem Southam from my list.

    Looks like we were posting at the same time and share the same influences. I forgot John Davies and Jem Southam. Paul Hill gave a talk at Derby on his Light peak/Dark peak work. John Blakemore was teaching at that time and John Davies came and gave a masterclass, good times! We can't forget Raymond Moore can we?

    This question really got me thinking about my influences and how they affected my work, I also had to add my teachers.

    Re: Your Photographic Heroes...

    This thread is going to cause me to spend hours looking up many photographers I have never heard of, and many I have heard of but forgotten about.

    Two of my favorite locals:
    Austin Granger and Ken Lee. I am confident that if I was flipping through a stack of 8X10s and came across a print by either one, I would immediately know who took the photograph - that's the way it is when I come across any of their images here on the forum - I know it's theirs before looking left - and I always love the image.

    Alex Timmermans is another who's images just leave such an impression on me. After viewing one of his images I feel like I have watched a full length motion picture.
