He was Ansel Adams’ Photographic Assistant in Carmel from 1974 to 1979, and integrally involved with Adams’ books, teaching in Yosemite, and production of fine prints. Ross’s tonally exquisite black-and-white photograph prints, painstakingly hand-crafted in the darkroom, are prized by collectors and hang in collections throughout the world. Ross is the exclusive printer of Ansel Adams’ Yosemite Special Edition Prints, an assignment Adams personally selected him for. He makes each print by hand from Adams’ original negatives using traditional darkroom techniques.
