Galen Rowell's landscape & adventure
photography - Galen is one of my favorite photographers.
He espouses a philosophy of conservation, adventure, love of his subject
(wilderness) and above all, is masterful in his work. If you
are ever fortunate to be in Bishop California on Highway 395, be sure
to stop at his gallery. After an 18 month wait, I was
scheduled to take a 3 day workshop with Galen who tragically died
with his wife and two friends in an airplane accident in August 2002.
While Barbara wasn't flying on this tragic trip, she is a pilot, and
published a fantastic book on her journey of taking a Cessna 14,000
miles from California to the bottom of South America:
Rowell's Book at Amazon
- Spectacular Large Format National Parks pictures. The photographer,
Quan-Tuan Luong, has traveled to each National Park in the United
States and assembled a collection of work that in my opinion is very
publishable into a fine book. Beyond this work, Quan has
traveled much of the globe and displays his talent on his website.
- Wonderful large format fine art images from the Southwest USA.
- A website dedicated to photographer galleries while providing improvement
The Web's Top Nature Photography
Pages - I enjoy this site as some outstanding work can be seen.
and Film Resources:
B&H Photo, photography equipment
store - B&H has been terrific. I order all sorts of
stuff from B&H in New York, and 3 days later its in my door step.
They have been very reliable and price competitive. They've
got every kind of photographic equipment or accessory you can think
Photography Technique Sites:
Large Format site on the web - If you are thinking about large
format, this site is for you. It has a very active community
of professional large format gallery photographers who have addressed
uncountable questions and issues on large format. I'm self-taught
on large format photography, and much of it came from reading the
posts at this site.
Traveler's resource to New Zealand
- One of my favorite destinations. I hope the recent commercialization
from Lord of the Rings doesn't spoil its quiet, natural charm.
I can't say enough about how fantastic New Zealand truly is - The
scenery is beautiful and the people amongst the friendliest we've
