He was an only child but had both parents with him named Charles and Olive. He started out as an artist and got his inspiration from his friends. He did not attend college. He got into photography because while going on a family trip his father gave him a camera and the rest was history.
Fame and awards!
What did he say about his own photographs? What do others think about them?
Adams didn't like to brag. He didn't take credit for his photographs because he said that the world is what creates the beauty, and he just wants to capture it. He also said that when he feels something he wants to express it through his photos.
Other people including his friends look at his photographs and think of something at a very mystical level.
