As your cruise Cyberspace, spend a few minutes looking at these Websites:

Peter Yang: Whimsical might be the best word to describe Peter Yang’s photography. The Texas-born photographer is a regular contributor to Rolling Stone, ESPN Magazine and Wired. His images are impressively lit and well defined. When you visit his site, BE SURE to check out the “Cowboys” gallery.

Albert Watson: Albert Watson has made stunning images for nearly 4 decades. He has nearly 250 covers of Vogue magazine and has been published in numerous other publications. He has created images for various advertising campaigns such as Levi’s, Gap and Chanel. Make sure your volume is on when you visit his Website. You can spend countless hours there.

Mark Seliger: It might be easier to list the people Mark Seliger HASN’T photographed than it is to list those who have appeared in front of his lens. Seliger, another Texas photographer who made today’s list, is a contract photographer for Conde Nast Publications where he has shot numerous covers for Vanity Fair and GQ. Prior to Conde Nast, Seliger was chief photographer for Rolling Stone where he shot more than 100 covers. Here’s just a few of artists he’s photographed: Willie Nelson, BB King, Sean Combs, John Mayer, Johnny Cash, Jerry Garcia and Kurt Cobain.

As your cruise Cyberspace, spend a few minutes looking at these Websites:

Brian Kuhlmann: Chicago-based photographer Brian Kuhlmann’s use of light and color is spectacular. His start in photography is equally interesting: using six StarKist labels, he sent in for his Charlie Tuna camera and he was hooked. If you don’t have a lot of time, I recommend that you look at his “Movement” and his “Fashion” sections.

Michael Crouser: Michael Crouser’s photographic work is in a class by itself. He is a true storyteller and has a tremendous ability to use light and shadow to paint a scene. Also, if you’re looking for a great photo book, check out his “Dog Run.” For $32 US, it’s well worth the investment.

Pentax: Pentax users listen up: There’s a Website devoted just to you. Sponsored by Pentax, this Website features work by fellow Pentax-users including Mark Dimalanta and Julie Quarry. This is a really cool, fun and informative Website regardless the equipment you use.
