Who are your heroes of photography? Whose work do you most admire? Who are your top five?

Rules.
1) They don't have to be members of Purestorm.
2) They don't have to be alive.
3) They must be known as photographers of models (or at least people) so those whose work is mainly to do with landscape, wildlife, architecture, etc. are not allowed.

Here's my top five in no particular order.

Cecil Beaton
Henri Cartier-Bresson
Eric Kroll
Nikki Sixx
Chad Michael Ward
I may as well do it. I'm gonna get blamed for it anyway.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
