But, I’d have to say that the top spot goes to my friend Scott Dickerson. He took my very first photography class with me (back in high school – we used a darkroom!) I credit him with giving me that bug to first take photos. He’s now a professional photographer in Alaska, and I am not only astounded and inspired by his pictures, I’m also grateful that in some way we were part of each other’s journeys.

    There are so many photographers I admire, it’s hard to narrow it down. There are the greats like Ansel Adams and Annie Leibovitz and then there are the lovely, more everyday photos of Tara Whitney, Maggie Holmes, Candace Stringham and Katrina Kennedy. I guess my favorites would have to be anyone who is taking a photo of someone I love because those are my favorite photos.

  • I would LOVE a copy of Photoshop Elements 11! I just started grad school, and I’ve been using my husband’s desktop PC copy of Photoshop to edit my photos, but would love to be able to use a version on my Mac laptop so I can take it with me and edit wherever I am – life changing.

Its something I’ve admired and have tried to recreate in a dark room setting, but found better success with photoshop. In fact, having a better (updated version) of photoshop would be wonderful for my art (click my name if you wish to view it!).
