The 30 Most Influential Wedding & Portrait Photographers by Mike Allebach

30 Most Influential Photographers

(c) pascalgenest

Check out the people who are most influential as portrait and wedding photography teachers or behind the scenes. I created this list because there are many people who aren’t flashy and are doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make our photography industry better.  Most of them have never been on Creative Live.  Their work and passion for teaching others is truly amazing. Visit their websites. Take time to look at their work.  Support what they do.

I am personally thankful for all these photographer do and how they share their wealth of knowledge.

Did I miss your favorite person?   Tell me in the comments below who I missed and what influential thing they did to move your photo business forward!

So many people are wondering why their favorite photographer didn’t make the cut.  These are the people who are inspiring ME now or who have moved me in my career most recently.  They are also people I see inspiring you lately!

Like I wonder where I’d be without David Hobby’s strobist.com.  Or who the industry would be without Zack Arias & Jason Groupp.  I encourage you to write your list in the comments below.
