I want to thank some people who have helped me learn, appreciate, and get inspired.
So, here you go…in no particular order:
Scott Kelby - from the books, to the podcasts, to the online training, I can't keep up with all the ways that Scott has helped me learn and practice photography.
Rick Sammon - for making photography fun. And making it ok not to feel that you have to specialize. And for the Sammonisms. I can't get them out of my head.
Zach Arias - for keeping it real.
Bryan Peterson - for some of the best books and videos on learning photography.
Matt Kloskowski - for the Lightroom training.
David DuChemin - for the words and thoughts. His blog is probably the best for making you think about photography.
Art Wolfe - for inspiration. Any of his images makes me stop and stare.
Deborah Sandidge - for inspiring me to try infrared photography.
Joe McNally - for the most amazing books on how he works his magic.
Brenda Tharp - for the book, Creative Nature and Outdoor Photography.
Galen Rowell - for making me want to leave the house to get great shots.
