Top Ten Best Photographers

The Top Ten
1 Tricia Gosingtian

I like there photos

I m mad on your photographs..

Your r awesome love you

Probably spam voted. She doesn’t have a Wikipedia page, that I know of, and her photos are just images of her, rather than landscapes. And she’s 30% while the others have less than 20%. Not to mention the incredibly bare bones comments on Gosingtian, compared to the more detailed comments on Adams. - TopTenTed

2 Ansel Adams Ansel Adams

His photographs have great meaning and value. So much morse inspiring than just pictures of girls in clothes! He puts a lot of thought into his work, and that should be highly appreciated. He is by far my favorite!

Who needs color when you have Ansel Adams. His black and whites are the most evocative landscapes ever done. Stark and revealing.

Hello sir...
I am crazy about your work. Great work!

Amazing photographer.

3 David LaChapelle David LaChapelle
4 David Bailey David Bailey

Easily the best in my view. He has a fabulous range and variety. The pictures don't appear 'contrived' as in some works. The man was a ground breaker when it came to fashion photography and his name must the most famous among all British photographers. Apart from all that he must have something more than special about him to have shagged all those beautiful women!

I was fascinated with his pictures.. and it has different type of variety, not only focus on one idea, he has everything you are looking for! Hes photos will be my inspirations...

By far the best his eye for detail and originality is spectacular he captures thingas many photographers miss

Creative and inspiring as time moves on his photos become even more of an inspiration to me as an amateur photographer aspiring to become a professional in this world

The Contenders
11 Philippe Halsman Philippe Halsman

THE FIRST OF HIS PHOTOGRAPHY I SAW WAS OF DALI. AND AFTER THAT WHEN I CHECKED OUT THE NAME OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER, IT WAS PHILIPPE HALSMAN. AFTER SEEING ALL OF HIS PHOTOGRAPHY I HAVE SELECTED HIM AS BEST PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER.

13 Helmut Newton Helmut Newton
14 Kristian Bertel
15 Robert Mapplethorpe Robert Mapplethorpe

As a professional photographer, Mapplethorpe is the master of critical insight and self-reflexion through the lens.

16 Herb Ritts Herb Ritts Herbert "Herb" Ritts Jr. (August 13, 1952 – December 26, 2002) was an American fashion photographer and director prolific for his photographs of celebrities, models, and other cultural figures throughout the 1980s and 1990s. His work concentrated on black-and-white photography and portraits, often ...read more.
17 Irving Penn Irving Penn

Anyone that has been actually trained in the art of photography knows that Irving Penn is the man. Irving Penn understood how to take simple ideas and transcend those ideas so that the viewer could also make those ideas their own. Too many photographers, these days, are gimickie. Not Irving Penn. He line, form, and just composition to make compelling images that are timeless to this very day.

18 Bob Gruen Bob Gruen
19 James Nachtwey James Nachtwey

He is one of the greatest war photographers ever. His master pieces leads me into a tragic reality of the wars.

20 Marcus Keef
21 Francesco Scavullo
22 Peter Lik
