Yosemite National Park is full of untouched beauty and so many natural wonders, that it is often a site visited by many photographers and artists looking for inspiration or wanting to try their hand at capturing the true beauty of the location. Ansel Adams Yosemite photography is some of the most popular that you will find portraying this incredible park in all of its beauty, mostly because he was a well known photographer during his lifetime.

Adams made his first trip to Yosemite when he was only 14 and immediately fell in love with it. His parents gave him a camera upon arriving at the park, which he used to explore the entire valley and create his own picture journal of his experience.

In 1921, Ansel Adams returned to Yosemite Valley as the curator of the LeConte Memorial Lodge, The Sierra Club building, and the visitor’s center that was recently built before his tenure at the park. He led weekly hikes to different areas of the park and thoroughly enjoyed all the natural beauty Yosemite is famous for. As he became more involved, he began leading backcountry trips and longer excursions, introducing people to the wonderment of the natural wilderness on a clear night and the beauty of untouched high country lakes. During early excursions, Ansel took many pictures throughout the journeys. However, many people don’t know this, but his first dream was to be a concert pianist, not a famous photographer.
