Meet our photography instructors!

Day-use visitors can participate in classes with The Ansel Adams Gallery too! Your class receipt serves as a reservation for entry to the park. You will still need to pay the park entry fee. Final rosters of confirmed and cancelled attendees are provided to the Park Service each evening (the day before).

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. Let's enjoy photographing the great outdoors while staying safe!
