... the most?

My own.

I am influenced more by my own bad examples than by other people's good examples.

Oky, I will change my statement to "who has influenced you?"

As for me, my favorite photographer is Eugene Atget:

I wish I were more influenced by Atget - lol!

As for me (and this is sad to admit) the photographer who influenced my most in my sports shooting was our own JohnG. Is he the best there is? No. However he is a real shooter like you and me not working as a full time pro so seeing his work made me want to get to a similar level. This is one of the main reasons I work with similar gear then I know that the differential is down to my skill and not kit limitation.... so you can conclude that my skill is still lacking LOL.

As for my wedding photography, there is not a single person although the biggest influence is style (if I have one) is a local pro I used to assist. There is also Jeff Ascough who is a stunning wedding photography and I would love to emulate his work but he has such a great eye I can't get close. http://www.jeffascough.com/
