Peter Yang

Peter Yang lives in Brooklyn, hails from the great state of Texas, and photographs subjects all over the world. Peter shoots lots of rock stars. He gets along with them because he’s a nice guy and not intimidating. This is confusing to Peter because he thinks he totally looks like a rock star. Peter is a regular contributor to Rolling Stone, Esquire, and the New York Times magazine and has shot campaigns for Pepsi, Tylenol, and Bank of America, among others. His work has been recognized by American Photography and Communication Arts, but he would never tell you because he is too modest. Also, he once bowled a 225. Peter’s best travel advice is to get a neck pillow and eye shade. He says you will look like a fool but sleep like a king.
