What�s Going On
There are quite a few things going on, with the Gallery and through other organizations within Yosemite. Gallery programs are detailed below, and you can visit our calendar to find more information about dates, times, and other park programs. You can also use our map to get situated.
Camera Walks� Free Camera Walks, led by staff photographers, are offered every Monday (at the Ahwahnee Hotel) Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday throughout the year. These depart from the Gallery porch at 9:00 AM and are limited to 15 people. Topics are basic information about using cameras, composition, exposure, and whatever questions come up. Both digital and traditional formats welcome.
Fine Print Tours � Spend an hour with our gallery curator viewing some of the Ansel Adams original photographs in our inventory.

Most Saturdays at 3PM, be sure to check the calendar and call for information.
