Alan Ross has earned an international reputation as a specialist in the art of black-and-white photography- as an artist, educator and master printer.
He was Ansel Adams’ Photographic Assistant in Carmel from 1974 to 1979, and and was integrally involved with Adams’ books, teaching in Yosemite, and production of fine prints. He has been the exclusive printer of Ansel Adams’ Yosemite Special Edition prints for over thirty-seven years and over the span of that time has made close to one hundred thousand prints from Adams’ negatives.
Alan operated a commercial photography studion in San Francisco for twelve years with projects ranging from ads, magazine articles and world-wide campaigns for the Bank of America to landscape murals for the National Park Service. He relocated to Santa Fe in 1993 to devote more of his energies to his personal work, teaching and work for select clients, including Boeing, Nike, IBM and MCI.
His photography hangs in renowned collections and galleries throughout the country and internationally.
