Finding a (silent) photographic mentor

A quick and dirty journal entry here because I've promised to let my daughter have the computer (damn silly of me).

Anyway, pretty much everyone who talks about improving their (or someone elses) photography recommends finding photographers out there that they relate to, that can provide a guide, and example, an aspiration. Well I've decided to do that. But How? What constitutes a mentor I'd like to follow.

Anyway I've got an answer - for now.

Over the next few days my plan is to sift through a couple of the books I've got, find photographers whose body of work have a significant number of shots that make me think "God, I wish I'd taken that!" and make a list.

Next entry - the first list.
