Have you ever wondered who you would most want to take your portrait? DPReview asked ten professional photographers this very question as part of their new "DPReview Asks" series.

The questioned photographers include Brian Smith, Amy Vitale, Cliff Mautner, Bambi Cantrell, Peter Hurley, Gerd Ludwig, Tony Gale, Jerry Ghionis, Jared Polin and Ron Haviv. While there are a variety of names dropped by the various pros, one name that popped up on numerous occasions is that of Richard Avedon. The late American fashion and portrait photographer was incredibly influential across multiple spheres of photography throughout his long career. You can read more about him and view his work here.

Many of the same photographers were also asked by DPReview what their first camera was. To hear the answer to that question and take a trip down memory lane, check out the first episode of DPReview Asks below.
