I'm a fan of the self portrait. I think they often reveal a lot about the photographer. Whether done intentionally  or not, I love seeing the photos and trying to glean more information than maybe the photographer intended. I'll make a short list of my favorite well known self portrait photographers, but I really love seeing them from anyone. It's always interesting to me.

Here is a short list of photographers known for many things including their self portraits:

Cindy Sherman
Lee Friedlander
Andy Warhol
Robert Mapplethorpe
Weegee
Tony Gale
Nan Goldin
Larry Clark
Abby Robinson

I have shot many self portraits and will continue to do so. After 30 years it also becomes a great personnel document of your life. Give it a try, you always have the subject with you...
