The ProActive Photographer; Photographic Inspiration

Written by Stan Foxworthy

Over the years I have enjoyed looking at the images made by master photographers and artists, and I remain in awe of what has been created. I do this for inspiration and to better my craft. Seeing through the eyes of Yousuf Karsh, Steve McCurry, John Singer Sargent, Gregory Heisler, Jay Dickman, Art Wolf, Renoir, Richard Avedon, Pablo Picasso, Joe McNally and so many others (my list is huge and there are so many I owe much to!) broadens my personal view. It also allows me to shift my way of seeing things in new ways, which has given me much appreciation for the every-day!

What keeps me inspired is the ability to tell a story through the images I create. What inspires you? What stories do your images tell?
