Inspired By: Where the Series is Going

I thought about starting this Series when I heard that “Mountain Light’, Galen & Barbara Rowell’s Gallery, was closed, and that was my first post.  Reading his books was a turning point in my use of E-6 films.  I wanted to start acknowledging the Photographers that have influenced me and what about them I find Inspiring.

So I thought of lots of “Famous” Photographers”, some of whom I’ve actually met, and put them on my ‘to do list’.  But Lately I’ve realized that my ‘colleagues’ (people that are amongst the best but not famous yet?) are perhaps MORE inspiring.  People whose Blogs and Tweets I care to follow must mean something to me, right?

Unfortunately, some of those who Inspired me, Like Galen Rowell, have passed on.  Their websites may no longer exist.  But I will share with you wrk that I never would have tried without their Inspiration.

So, If I’m following you, especially if we communicate a lot, you may see yourself here.

One thought on “Inspired By: Where the Series is Going”

  1. I started out writing a list of “famous Photographers” that I felt had influenced me. Then I thought about it and realized that I am now much more influenced by Photographers that I communicate with. Galen Rowel still counts as an influence, but most on my list really aren’t.
