I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite photographers here to show you who inspires me.
I’ve blogged about Scott Kelby before:
I’ve also picked his annual photowalk and some of his books as my “picks of the week’ on the Paperclipping Digi Show podcast. So I’m sure it’s no surprise that I’m listing him as one of my favorite photographers. He’s a pro. He’s in a league all his own, and that’s one that I will never be a part of because I won’t be dedicating my life to becoming that level of photographer. I’m ok with that. I’m also glad I get to enjoy his photographs and learn from him on his blog and from his many wonderful books.
I’ve blogged about Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond) before:
Her photography website was my “pick of the week” in episode 46 of the Paperclipping Digi Show Podcast. I even have one of her free high-res pictures printed and framed in my house. I love seeing life on her ranch and her food photography is just amazing!
Dan Phelps of Lego-a-Day fame is most definitely a favorite photographer of mine. Amazing photography + Lego minifigs = total happiness for me! I check his blog every day (so do my kids). I follow his Flickr stream. I pretty much think he’s awesome! I’ve blogged about him before: Want to make a photo shoot more fun? Bring Legos! His website was my “pick of the week” for episode 33 of the Paperclipping Digi Show.
Because I have a passion for Legos, I am always on the lookout for fun Lego-related photography ideas. I found powerpig’s photostream on Flickr during the Christmas season a few years ago. He takes incredible pictures of the Legos that come in the advent calendar each day during the countdown to Christmas. I look forward to his photos almost as much as opening the advent calendar!
I’ve blogged about him before: My kids December Daily fun and you can bet I’ll be anxiously awaiting those advent calendar photos this December!
I adore Katrina Kennedy and love her photography. She truly captures every day life through her lens and makes it beautiful. I feel a special connection with her because she’s the one who really helped me understand the dial on my camera when I took her classes at Get it Scrapped. I follow her blog, participate in her gallery, read her posts on The Daily Digi, and have taken her classes. If she teaches more classes, I will take those as well. She’s a great teacher and just an all-around cool lady!
I’ve blogged about her before:
- Summer Blog Tour – Day 5
- How I learned (and am still learning) about photography
- Using photo prompts to improve your photography (The Daily Digi)
- Online Classes (The Daily Digi)
Katrina’s Capture Your 365 website was my “pick of the week” in episode 39 of the Paperclipping Digi Show podcast.
Katrina also happens to be the only photographer on this list that I actually interact with. We are both part of The Daily Digi site, I’ve been a guest with her on a podcast, and we communicate through twitter & email. I had no idea when I signed up for her class a few years ago, that someday I would get to be her friend also. Awesome!
It’s fun to think about the photographers that inspire you, and why you like their work. It’s amazing that I found each one of these talented people through the internet. Without the technology of today, I would not be able to enjoy and be inspired by their talent in so many ways.
Who are the photographers that inspire you? I’d love to know!
