So, as I'm a sucker when it comes to photography I'd like to know who are your favourites :) I always find it interesting how taste differs and what kinds of photography are mostly liked! Annnd it's alway amazing to discover new photographers, some of them definitely deserve their success!

For me personally, I'm mostly into Fine Art Photography. Not too photoshop-manipulated but I love a hint of magic.

My favourite is definitely Kirsty Mitchell - her photographs are all real and shot on location, no photoshop involved (just normal retouch)

Annnnd of course Tim Walker (I think he's more a fashion photographer, but Storyteller nevertheless)

Bruce Weber - His photography is very down to earth. No silly frills or embellishments.

Steven Meisel - Versatile. He's covered so many different themes and styles.

My number one favorite is Tim Walker. Everything he does looks like a fantasy, a magical story, something whimsical, ethereal and out-of-this-world-beautiful. :luv:

Although she wasn't a fashion photographer in the strictest sense of the word, although she did a bit, Francesca Woodman's work has always fascinated me. It's so gritty and dark, really not my usual sort of thing but her images always make me think. A lot of hers are self-nudes and she's not always skinny but they're quite beautiful in a haunting way... more for what you can interpret them as, as oppose to what they really look like. Particularly when you look at her tragic life story :(

I like loads, many of whom have already been mentioned (Walker, Weber, Lindbergh, Dermachalier). I think my absolute favourite current one is Steven Meisel though, who's also been mentioned. I particularly like his more subversive images.

I also like David La Chapelle, although I don't think he does much fashion photography anymore. He the protogee of Andy Warhol and he's got that whole impressionistic thing of Tim Walker, but it's more acid trip, less whimsical.

I also love Guy Bourdin's work despite myself (because he was apparently a total photographer-cliche creep). His images had a glossy, stylized yet dark quality to them.

I had to stop and close Tatler the first time I saw the Demarchelier Chanel pictures. So clean, so perfect, and the amazing mirroring of the watch hands and the models, and the feel of a sporty watch compared to a decorative one. I can't decide which one of these two are my favourites.
