Ansel Adams is one of the most truly famous photographers that ever existed. Ask any truck driver who Mario Testino is, and he’ll look at you perplexed. (or Terry Richardson or Avedon, etc.) But ask them who Ansel Adams is, and they’ll say, “He was that photography guy.”  My point being, you don’t have to be a photographer, or in the “industry” to know who Ansel Adams is. Hence, real fame.

He is best remembered as a master of  black and white photography.And if they had the Sierra Club back then, he would have  sat on the board of directors!. This is the man who invented the Zone System, still used to this day. The Zone System basically determined proper exposure of the negative and contrast of the final print. Adams was nothing if not the greatest teacher of the importance of sharpness and how to achieve it. And he loved his large format cameras and high f stops. He is also known for being a co-founder of Group f/64.
