Jeff Schewe - Absolute Total Control

Whether it's working up models and intricate rigging or building Photoshop files with seemingly endless numbers of layers, Jeff Schewe is serious about being in control

Jeff Schewe - Absolute Total Control

Jeff Schewe has forgotten more about Photoshop than I will ever know. He has been using it since before version 1, and has been an active consultant for Adobe since version 2.5 and an alpha tester for every version since 4.0. In that time, Schewe has done his best to help Adobe build a program that gives photographers the tools they need to achieve their vision.

Howard Schatz - Uncommon Vision

Howard Schatz's career sprung from unlikely beginnings. In Rare Creatures, he walked a line between commercial and personal vision, and also between film and digital technology.

Howard Schatz - Uncommon Vision

Suggest to Howard Schatz that the computer is shortchanging photography, and he bristles. In his view, the end result, the beautiful image, justifies any means needed to attain it. “Working in the darkroom is a very respected craft—to alter contrast, to crop, to burn, to dodge, to bleach, to diffuse—to do all the things you can do in the darkroom,” says Schatz. “When you hear ‘computer,' it sounds like you're cheating a little bit, when in fact it's the same thing. You just have so much more control, and the range of what you can get from a negative is so much greater. So I use the computer as a digital darkroom.”

Jay Maisel - Going With The Flow

The master of color and self-diagnosed nontechie talks about keeping your artistic priorities in the JPEG-versus-RAW world

Jay Maisel - Going With The Flow

The first time I held a digital camera, it was forced into my hands by Sam Garcia, a Nikon tech rep and a very good friend. “Look,” he said, “I know you love your F5 and would never switch, but just try this.” That was in January of 2001, and I haven't shot film since then, give or take five or six rolls.

Joel Meyerowitz - AFTERMATH

By working connections and being a model of persistence, Joel Meyerowitz secured special access to New York's Ground Zero site.

Joel Meyerowitz - AFTERMATH

On September 5, 2001, Joel Meyerowitz set up his Deardorff camera in the space that had once been his studio for 15 years. As he composed his photograph of Lower Manhattan, he recognized that it wasn't a particularly eventful day for creating a picture. Unlike the other images he had taken over the years from this spot, this photo wouldn't have the benefit of great light or dynamic weather. Instead, this photograph, which contrasted the simple, muted hues of sky against the crowded urban landscape, was just of another average day in New York City.

Markus Klinko and Indrani - Go With The Flow

Celebrity photography is a funky specialty. The Team of Markus Klinko and Indrani know how to work with the entourage.

Markus Klinko and Indrani - Go With The Flow

$200,000. When you have a client paying that kind of dough, he or she can basically make any request. Nothing illegal, of course, but if a celebrity decides he or she wants to have a party on the set of a photo shoot for, say, a new album cover—well, that's part of the gig. Markus Klinko and Indrani understand that, and if it happens, they just go with the flow.

Lionel Deluy - Hi Energy!

Lionel Deluy's signature style comes from a mixture of furious action on the set and creative work in Photoshop

Lionel Deluy - Hi Energy!

"I like to go fast! You know? High energy—boom, boom, boom, click, click, click. Fast! Otherwise, you lose momentum and people get tired.” Fast. High energy. These adjectives embody the attitude and shooting style of Lionel Deluy, but not the man. When he puts down the camera, I find a relaxed and extremely down-to-earth guy who you can't help but like.

Pete Turner - The Dr. No Of Photography

Pete Turner remains at the forefront of experimentation with new technology to create his most striking color images yet.

Pete Turner - The Dr. No Of Photography

Pete Turner's home, at the farthest end of Long Island, N.Y., is exactly the way one would imagine it to be: full of brilliant colors. Bold red curtains hang over the windows, bright blue seat-cushions cover the wooden dining room chairs and an oversized rainbow-colored umbrella sits in a bucket in the entryway. In the front hallway, a red sofa shaped like lips is reminiscent of Turner's iconic “Hot Lips” photograph created in 1967 for the cover of an album, Soul Flutes: Trust in Me.
