Masters of Photography – Ansel Adams

A few weeks ago I started off a series I’m going to be doing on some of the Masters of Photography, the best in history, with a video about Henri Cartier-Brisson.

This week we’re going to look at probably the most well known landscape photographer of all time, Ansel Adams (Feb. 20 1902 — Apr. 22, 1984). He started his career as a musician but transitioned into being a photographer where he could use his skills to portray his love of nature and the natural world. He was a master of technical skills, co-developed the Zone System and was a founding member of the Group f/64.

You may not know his face, but you should certainly know his images!

This is part one of 3 in the video series. Watch part two and three here.

“ You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” – Ansel Adams
