William Henry Jackson
The first great photographer of Yellowstone!

Michael Kenna
Beautiful night photographs

For many years Gene coordinated a series of workshops at the Gladding McBean clay works in Lincoln, CA. An extraordinary number of wonderful photographs resulted. His are among the best.

Roman Loranc
Spectacular photographs of the Central Valley of California, and of eastern Europe

Tom Millea
Georgeous platinum photographs; unfortunately he can no longer make them due to health problems. His more recent pictures are still beautiful.
