  • The Ansel Adams Gallery is an ironic and historical place for anyone interested in photography to visit. Formerly known as the Best Studio (originally started by Ansel Adams’ father-in-law, Harry...  more »

  • The absolute worst! We were in a mammoth traffic jam in Fish Camp and called to set up a photography class for my son and I. They answered and said sure come today at 1, it’s $375 for a 4 hour class for two...we booked. 4 hours later we got there...agonizing...we called ahead and they said “ do you want landscape or technical help?” We’ll both obviously! We have gone with Howie at Acadia Photo Safaris in Acadia several times (awesome! Highly recommend!). So they said well if you want technical help it is $450...seriously, $375 for a tour guide? It gets worse.... We arrive at studio after a miserable 4 hours, meet our instructor and are told we have to drive her, no problem. My wife offers to drive, she has no photography interest and plans to do her office notes...we are told that we have to pay $75 in order for her to drive OUR car..wait what?? Insane... we said no thanks and walked out...so we were supposed to dump my wife 35 miles from our hotel on the curb for 4 hours? THESE IDIOTS RUINED OUR VACATION STAY AWAY , run don’t walk!!!
  • As a photographer I did not see what I hoped to find. I wanted to see a tribute to Ansel Adams with a little history and samples of his work. Instead I was given walls of post cards, books, calendars and candles for sale. I understand this is a gallery designed to make money, not a museum. I also understand original Ansel Addams prints can cost in the 10's of thousands of dollars. At least display the Ansel Adams reproductions in a prominent area together, not a hodge-podge of old and new artist. See photos from other contributors to judge for yourself.
