List of the best fashion photographers.  Great fashion is purposeful art and it takes a gifted photographer to enhance the artistry of a garment with a still image. Who is the Best Fashion Photographer? We will finally answer this question with the help of Ranker voters.
 

The great fashion photographers have many different styles. A photographer like Annie Leibovitz can be minimalist, capturing the heart and soul of her subjects or one can be vibrant and theatrical as is the case with a photographer like David LaChapelle. Photography, like fashion, can be very subjective. Everyone who views a piece has their own reaction to it. One person may think that a photo is the best they have ever seen, while someone else may think it's too crazy. That's why we need your help determining which fashion photographer is the greatest.
 

All of the photographers on our list are true artists. Their photos have graced the covers of Vogue, Elle and Glamour. They have worked with beautiful models, famous actors and actresses, as well as the most innovative designers of their time. Some of them have even become celebrities in their own right.
 

The question remains, who is the best fashion photographer? Vote and help us uncover which shutterbug deserves the number one spot.
