All photos to the right of the comparison belong to Jessica Kobeissi.
So another part of this project was to try to contact each of the photographers. Below is what I sent each of them.
My name is Abigail Young, and I'm a student at HeLa high school Vancouver Washington. Currently I'm enrolled in an AP Photography class. For the next month we have been asked to find a famous photographer and try to recreate their style. I choose you, so I have a couple of questions I would love for you to reply to.
How did you start to taking photos? What really pulled you in?
How long did it take you to find your style?
Anything else other than photography you enjoy doing?
Thank you so much for reading this! I hope to hear back from you.
Please reply all so I can include my teacher, Lee Emmert.
My name is Abigail Young and I’m a student at HeLa high school in Vancouver Washington. Currently I’m taking a Photography class in which we have been assigned to pick a Famous Photographer, and recreate some of their photos. I chose you to recreate. I love your style and how different it is. I was wondering if I could ask you some quick questions.
How did you start this career?
Do you think you need a great camera, with a good lens to succeed in the photography world?
How did you find your style?
Thank you so much for looking over my email. If you could, please “Reply-all” if you reply. My teacher Lee Emmert, needs to receive it too.
Thank you again!

My class and I have been assigned to inspire some of our own photos and compare them to other people’s work, and to make them to what we believe are worthy... Or what my teacher called the assignment Famous Photographers. So I picked you! I was wondering for my assignment if I could ask you a couple of questions.
Why did you choose model photography? Knowing that there are many different types of this artform, why did you pick this type?
How long did it take you to find your “Style”?
Do you think you will continue this profession for a long time? Or maybe with time it will fade into a hobby? What do you think?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this email!
Now since this is a school assignment, could you please “ Reply all” if you you do respond to this? (My teacher need to see this as well)
In the end I didn't get any response to my emails. That's ok. I'm happy to learn from each of them.
I would totally do this again.
