The Gallery is temporarily closed due to California's Stay-At-Home orders. Yosemite Valley Photography Classes have been postponed until the Gallery resumes operation.
To ensure the safety of our class participants during COVID-19, we will be reducing the number of people per class to six participants. This will help us maintain accurate social distancing within the group. Face coverings are required for all participants, along with no-touch temperature checks. Let's enjoy photographing the great outdoors while staying safe!
Travel to a series of stunning locations where Ansel Adams composed some of his most famous photographs. Each stop in the Footsteps of Ansel Adams offers you the opportunity to see the very same scene through your own camera lens, as you are guided in-depth by an expert staff photographer to best capture the iconic vistas. In this class you will dive into the philosophies and life stories of the man behind the legend. You’ll get to practice Ansel’s photographic techniques, and learn how he pushed the popularity of landscape photography while helping to motivate the American environmental movement. Join Ansel’s legacy in immortalizing Yosemite National Park while composing your own extraordinary photographs.
