Some time ago I've started the new album "Photogs I've learned from". http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?album=29132 Album is called to respect the guys whose arts I've used as the best practice for my own photography. Some of them I know personally, some of them just by photos on Anet. I think it could be a good idea to say also couple of good words to these photographers.
First I'd like to start from my colleagues – Leo Faerberg and Marina Lystcteva.
Marina and Leo are two of the leading aviation photogs in Russia. Lucky fate – they are not only my colleagues but also good friends and Leo even a partner in aviation photography. We have few good reporters in aviaphoto industry in Russia, however Leo and Marina are very creative in addition to their perfect reporting skills. It is difficult to describe what exactly I got from them – a lot of things looking at their work and arts. I can still get more.
Here is the collection of Leo:

but you can find a lot of his staff in www.ato.ru (in Russian, Russian leading civil aviation magazine) or on Aviation Week. His photos on www.transportphoto.com will be available soon I hope.

Marina works for one of major local information agency ITAR-TASS. Her personal page is here: http://fotografersha.livejournal.com/
I have to say few kind words on Sergey Ryabtsev. Sergey had granted me strong support while I was coming to the world of digital photography. As a professional designer he instructed me in many PS things. Another important thing he did (besides some over friends of mine) – he had ‘infected’ me by the virus of small aviation
Here is his great staff:

Another Sergey – Tsvetkov. Walking history book of world's aviation history. Before I met him I thought I knew a lot about aviation history. After I’ve got I know almost nothing. But I became better since that time. Still not as good as Sergey anyway. His shots:
