    Château du Sureau in partnership with The Ansel Adams Gallery In Yosemite National Park introduce a photography weekend experience designed to capture images of park scenes made famous by Adams’ signature photographic style. Join us for an expert-guided curated instructional program is for photography enthusiasts at all levels.

    The weekend package includes elegant accommodations inclusive of all meals and transportation to and from the park. During a full-day guided experience in the park, participants will gain insight into the artistic creativity of Ansel Adams through a curated discussion and presentation of Adams’ fine print original photographs. Guests will also visit Yosemite’s most picturesque locations, where they will be taught how to best use their cameras to incorporate Adams’ photographic techniques and compositions.

    Designed for beginning photographers, hobbyists, and Ansel Adams enthusiasts, participants will have the opportunity to frame in their own lens the scenes made famous by Adams and replicate his awe-inspiring use of light. They will be transported to an instructional “outside classroom” setting where they will learn about digital camera techniques and compositional theory, followed by a walking tour of Cooks Meadow offering scenic views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Sentinel Rock, and the Merced River.
