When I first got started as a photographer I had no idea what a good portrait was. I just didn't get it. Everything bored me and looked the same. Over the years I've learned to love portrait photography. I still don't know how to take a really good portrait, I just cant see it. We each have our own unique vision and skill sets. Portraits isn't one of mine I guess. However, I do know a good one when I see it...Here's a list of my 13 favorite portrait photographers of all time (in no particular order).

1) August Sander
2) Irving Penn
3) Diane Arbus
4) Jim Marshall
5) Richard Avedon
6) Joni Sternbach
7) Ellen Von Unwerth
8) Lewis Hine
9) John Thomson
10) Cindy Sherman
11) Man Ray
12) Helmut Newton
13) Mike Disfarmer
