Robert Doisneau (1912-1994), an inspiration, especially his early 1930s photographs on the streets of Paris.

 

Gary Winogrand (1928-1984), a pioneer of street photography.

 

Magnum. I have huge regard for the photographers and the work of the Magnum cooperative. I had the privilege to meet Erich Hartmann, President of Magnum, 1985-86.

 

Erez Marom, a brilliant photographer of the natural world and an inspiration for macro work.

 

Boyd and Evans, husband and wife partnership – great friends. Painters and photographers and I love their landscape work.

 

Jeff Overs, a BBC News stills photographer. His work is beguiling and beautiful.

 

Elliott Erwitt. To quote from Wikipedia. “known for his black and white candid shots of ironic and absurd situations within everyday settings”; that says it – brilliant work.

 

Edward Hopper (1882-1967), painter and printmaker. His work conveys the feeling that something significant is about to happen or has just happened – a quality I admire and aspire to.

 

Michael Freemen. For me, the best writer about the science and practicalities of photography – a good teacher.
