An expressive, tonally rich, silver image represents the ultimate blend of vision, passion and craft. No other photographer achieved this delicate balance more consistently or more successfully than Ansel Adams.

Now you can connect Ansel’s approach and mastery with your own photography in this five-day inspirational workshop designed for film-based photographers wanting to hone their vision and advance their technique in the style of Ansel Adams.

Under the patient and expert guidance of Alan Ross, Ansel’s last field assistant and a master in traditional film photography himself, you will explore the photographic concepts and techniques essential to the creation of a meaningful silver image that represents your vision.

Among the topics you will cover:

  • Equipment choice and its impact on your final image
  • Isolating and evaluating the elements of a scene
  • Translating the literal to the expressive
  • Choosing a lens and using it well
  • Using the Zone System to nail exposure
  • Managing depth-of-field
  • Filters: when and how to use them
  • Achieving tonal nuance
  • Decisions at the time of exposure that will help in printing
  • Selective masking for hands-free dodging and burning
  • Printing and presentation--bringing your vision to life on paper


Alan Ross is a master photographer who worked side-by-side with Ansel Adams as his photographic assistant, in the field and in the darkroom, and who knows Ansel’s approach and technique perhaps better than other any photographer today. He was personally selected by Adams to be the exclusive printer of the Yosemite Special Edition Photographs in 1975, an assignment Alan continues to this day, making each print by hand from Adams' original negatives using traditional darkroom techniques. Alan specializes in helping photographers at any level identify and better express their photographic vision and has led workshops in locations ranging from the scenic Southwest to the mountains of China. His photographs hang in collections and galleries around the world and have been featured in campaigns for companies like Boeing, Nike, IBM and the National Park Service.
