Don't get me wrong, there are many brilliant photographers, but in most cases I'm inspired by some of their works and not by their philosophies or personalities. Sometimes even a bad photographer gets lucky and shoots an insanely, unbelievably, stunnishing photo (?perfect). So, for me, this question cannot be answered.
I'm mostly influenced by the online photographic communities and I'm happy being a part of it.
Ok, if I may couch the question differently..
'Has the work of any photographer influenced you? or do you particularly admire the work of any photographer?'
No, not really. For me it's like fishing. Once you get experienced enough, you'll see that there is no magic in it and "the luck" is for amateurs. What is left is the artistic creativity, but I'm more into design than art (like Spielberg vs Art Documentary ).
