I got to meet, hang out with, and shoot (!!) with Joe McNally on two separate occasions — what an absolute pleasure. I find him a huge inspiration.
Calvin Hollywood is my inspiration for retouching. Love his style, and the effects he gets.
Lindsay Adler makes me swooooon over her lighting and stylistic ideas.
I also got to meet Frank Doorhof! That was just plain fun.
I admire Scott Kelby, of course, for his success and his willingness to share with others. I’ve also met him numerous times — great guy.
