Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams, the most famous name in landscape and nature photography, made the American landscapes timeless and eternal for upcoming generations. An avid and enthusiastic piano player, Adams was intending to become a pianist but a visit to Yosemite National Park in 1916 made an everlasting impact on him and capturing the beauty of nature using his camera came as a calling. Ansel didn’t become a full time photographer leaving music at bay, but coordinated both of his loves for a few years. In 1928, after his marriage with Virginia Best, he gave up on his musical inclinations and focused all his energy towards photography. Adams was not only a great photographer but also enjoyed developing new techniques which has been used in photography since then.
