Have you ever felt inspired so much through the works of another person that it immediately changes your thought process and you in turn immediately change your perspective on how you view your work?
For me, I was wonderfully inspired by the works of Phil Koch a fantastic landscape photographer who likes to "break the rules" so to speak on landscapes. His fabulous and vibrant work I find awe-inspiring. His landscapes are all pretty much always set at 50/50 (land/sky) and pretty much all in portrait mode. And it works!!
You can find his work here on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philkoch/
Not only is his work incredible but he's a nice guys too. Recently friended me on Facebook he is all too keen to impart his knowledge and seemingly outlandish camera settings in his works!
So, who has been your greatest influence and inspiration in your photographic art?
