Hey Guys/Gals,

Who would be your favourite NON-Aviation photographer? Someone who is fairly well known or has a reputation behind them... basically, not one of your friends.

One of my favourites would be...
David LaChappelle

- Jason DePodesta

P.S - Mod's/Screener's please keep it in this forum for more valuable responses.

Keep this non-aviation thread in this aviation-photography forum? Why?

Because most of the people who shoot planes, also shoot alot of Non-av stuff. And I know alot of the photographers don't go to the Non-Av forum. One of the top of my head would be Jeff.

Ansel Adams for landscapes, Henri Cartier-Bresson for people.

They may not have photographed planes for a living, but I certainly learned a lot about exposure (Adams) and "being there" (Cartier-Bresson) that applies to aviation photography.

I agree that this one probably does not belong in this forum but understand why Jason put it here and hope the mods agree......I like it and I do not visit non AV either.

Ansel Adams, no doubt, for his mastery of black and white. Very well known and not a surprising choice. Moonrise over Hernandez is my favourite of his.

Less well known, Frank Sutcliffe, another master, a real old master of black and white, fantastic early images.

And a surprise one, a long-time friend of mine who I only recently discovered to be a contributor to this site, who is extremely well known outside the aviation field, literally in his field, Chris Mattison. Yes. I know Jason excluded friends, but thought others might be interested in seeing what one of our own can do outside aviation.

The first name that came into my mind was Joe Cornish. He is a real master of landscape photography, in my view, and has some really mouth-watering images of the UK landscape.

Take a look here if you are interested.

Cheers.

I have admired many non-AV photographers work, several of which have already been mentioned. At a recent visit to the National Museum of Photography (Bradford), I was very impressed with the exhibition currently showing from John Davies. The exhibition showed black and white images (30 x 40 inch) from social and industrial history, progress and change in the UK. Truly stunning to admire them so closely.

I'd recommend a trip to see it - admission is free! http://www.nmsi.ac.uk/NMPFT/

Having come to know Mick & Paul a little over the last couple of years their choices do not surprise me.
Also have to agree with those that hold Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell & Henri Carier-Bresson in high regard.
The guys from Sutton Motorsports just rock..
Me personally... there are so many great photographers.. one of the things I love about the craft!..
Matthew Brady,Robert Capa, Tim Page, subject matter was not pretty but they did a good job of recording it
David Bailey, subject matter was invariably pretty, and he did great with it!
The Plisson's maritime photographs...

There are so many!

Cheers

I really admire the work of Nicholas Morant. Although noted for his work with Canadian Pacific, his non-railway images are equally stunning.

Back to the topic:
You've all posted some really great photographers. Ansel Adams is another one who's work I really appreciate it, but I never mentioned him knowing that he'd get mentioned anyways. What I like in him, and any of my favourite photographers is that they're not just able to capture a great image, but make it 20x better afterwards. Ansel Adams would do alot of dodging and burning in the dark lab.

Jim Rakete is definitely one of the best portrait photographers around. In terms of fashion it would be Peter Lindbergh. I also like Annie Leibovitz' portraits.

Otherwise, I'm more into photo journalism. One that comes instantly to mind is Robert Lebeck--a real legend. He's seen so many places & people it would suffice for 5 lives.
http://www.lebeck.de/

There are countless photographers with unknown names, who often work at wire services like the AP, Reuters, Getty Images &c. Everyday they produce great photos delivered on a deadline. Btw, most of them don't care about minor dust spots, badhorizon or whatever.

Jason, great thread!!

My favorites are "The Group of Seven".......

In 1920, J.E.H. MacDonald, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, Franklin Carmichael, F.H. Varley and Frank Johnston officially formed this now famous group. These were painters bitten by the Canadian north who, for the first time, took on the task of painting the great power, scenery and spirit of their land.
