Upcoming Lectures

Tickets opening soon

Alan Ross has earned an international reputation as a specialist in the art of black-and-white photography – as an artist, educator and master printer. He was Ansel Adams’ Photographic Assistant in Carmel from 1974 to 1979, and integrally involved with Adams’ books, teaching in Yosemite, and production of fine prints. Ross is the exclusive printer of Ansel Adams’ Yosemite Special Edition Prints, an assignment Adams personally selected him for in 1975. He makes each print by hand from Adams’ original negatives using traditional darkroom techniques. 

As a photographic educator, Ross specializes in helping photographers at any level to realize and express their photographic vision. He has led workshops in Yosemite & across the United States, Ireland, Italy, Australia and China. 

Ross’s tonally exquisite black-and-white photograph prints, painstakingly hand-crafted in the darkroom, are prized by collectors and hang in collections throughout the world.
