The mysterious Sam, a photographer working out of Rennes, France, creates some of the best portraits on 500px. His perfectly lit, location shots are some of the images I use for inspiration myself.

Another Russian portrait photographer, Dmitry Arhar’s work ranges from casual location work to studio headshots. Where Arhar really excels is in his retouching. His models all look flawless but he never pushes things too far. Anyone using Photoshop can learn from him.
