Mine is a bit different and left field. My top photographers are the guys I dive with every weekend in conditions that most people would walk away from. We don't have boats so we all shore dive here in Perth and if we are lucky on a good day the vis is 5m but usually around the 3m and very silty. We all support each other and suprisingly in the conditions we dive we get some very good photos and they are always there to give advice and a hand when required.

Martin Edge, Alex Mustard, Keri Wilkes, Nigel Motyer, Shannon Conway, John Collins, Tony Wu, Eric Cheng......but to be honest...there are so many more talented photographers out there, that will continue to inspire me to aspire to their skill level!

Martin and Alex were my original of the species...

If i might be so bold and add my favourite, because for me this thread is about sharing a preference and so for that reason I would like to advocate Anita Sherwood

http://www.britishsh...o.uk/anita.html

To wrongly paraphrase Morrisey, she says the most to me about my life. She has a real skill in just showing off the critters that I see and that mean the most to me with a simple, unprepossessing touch that shows them in their environment just doing the things they do. She has the same affection for the bugs that I do so that sometimes it feels like she is taking her photos from within my mask and for that single unassuming talent I hold her work up there with the greatest of respect.

I couldn't find a set of images or gallery of her work though. Looks like she's done a nice book. Thanks for sharing.

I completely agree Dean, Aside from your definition though, I'd like to add that those who have contributed to the underwater photography is also among them, like Eric Cheng himself and his work has contributed a lot to the underwater photography world. There are many more people who are less known but their work, efforts, talent and techniques has contributed tremendously to underwater photography.

me neither, which is a shame. The book is worth the money for the images alone even if you never go shore diving.
