David Burnett: Photojournalist David Burnett has more than 40 years of experience in news photography. Burnett was named by American Photo magazine as one of the “100 Most Important People in Photography.” If you don’t have time to look at his whole gallery of images (even though you should make the time), then at least check out the “Portraits” gallery. You won’t be disappointed.

James Nachtwey: You will never look at photography the same way after you view noted conflict photographer James Nachtwey’s images. He is truly a master of the photographic medium. You owe it to yourself to explore all the galleries on his website.

Joe McNally: Photographer Joe McNally’s list of accomplishments and publications in which his work has appeared would take a long time to list. He is a powerful photographic artist and his images are beautiful. McNally’s website is easy to navigate and offers a good sample of his work.

Lauren Greenfield: Greenfield’s portrait and documentary work are examples of photography done well. She is an accomplished photographer with credits in major leading publications such as The New Yorker, Elle, People, and the New York Times Magazine.
