Leaders in The Field of Photography, Printing, Color Management, and More

I’ve been building a directory of web sites of interest, published by a number of individuals and sources. These include photographers, printmakers, technologists, consultants, and more. This is only a preliminary update, and I will be expanding the level of detail with a week or two. I’ve done this in response to the many requests I receive each week for info like this.

These are not advertisements, but are references to resources you may find useful. I’ve listed people I know and trust.

Here’s an example of what you can expect to see:

Photography and Consulting

Wayne Cosshall: The Digital Image Maker, http://www.dimagemaker.com/
Wayne writes The Digital Imagemaker, the leading Australian photography, digital art and related area online magazine, with strong readership in the US and a growing readership in other countries. He is an accomplished photographer, writer, and consultant. Infrared and black and white photography, computer generated imaging, workshops, and other areas make up just a portion of Wayne’s areas of expertise.

Tom Hubbard

Includes the latest news for: photo gallery opening and exhibits, photo education workshops and seminars, photo equipment/software announcements, photo competitions, a virtual Student Gallery, photo tourist information, showcase photographers, and a complete photo event calendar for the Pacific Northwest. Tom also writes several other sites, which you can find via pmponline.com

Daniel J. Cox, http://www.naturalexposures.com/ is one of the world’s premier wildlife and nature photographers, and of course educators. Quoted from his site “He’s traveled to all seven continents, plying his craft in search of the images that help tell the stories and inspire his art.” He has many high-level awards for his work and “he is the sole author of ten books”. Enough said.  

Printmaking and Related

Jack Duganne, Duganne Ateliers, www.duganne.com
Jack is one of the few people I know who is truly a master of CS4, not just Photoshop, but pretty much the whole thing. He has been involved in printmaking long before most of us, starting out with the IRIS printer and escalating from there. He is an internationally-known authority on the subject, a superb educator, and photographic experimentalist.

Harald Johnson, www.dpandi.com Best known as an author (Mastering Digital Printing), Harald is at once one of the best specialists and generalists around. He’s an amazing communicator, able to bring artists, photographers, corporations, consultants, and other experts together in effective collaboration on leading edge projects. His web site is one of the best in the world as a resource on digital printing and related subjects.
