Activities at Ansel Adams Gallery

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 Tuesday (from the Majestic Yosemite Hotel), Thursday, and Saturday throughout the summer. These depart from the Gallery porch at 9 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. Please call to reserve your space.  Registration opens 3 days in advance of the scheduled walk by calling 209-372-4413.

Fine Print Tours

Spend an hour with our gallery curator viewing some of the Ansel Adams original photographs in our inventory. Evan Russel discusses the evolution of photography, Adams’ personal artistic evolution, and answers questions. Highly recommended for aspiring to advanced collectors. Most Saturdays at 3PM, be sure to check the calendar and call for information.
