Minamata - I have seen it, very good.
Under Fire looks good, haven't seen it.

There was that robin williams film. Not sure if it counts since he was the photo developer not a photographer.

Blow Up was an iconic period piece of Swinging Lodon psychedelia ....

There is an awesome short sequence of the Yardbirds at their peak, if you are into 60s music.

The main character is a photographer, it doesn't come up too much, but he takes creepy pics on the subway for an art show or something. The end of the movie is so ****ed I don't blame you forgetting that entire subplot.

For Shutter I only ever seen the Thai one, but there's an American remake as well.
