Artist Bio: Ted Orland lives in Santa Cruz, California, where he pursues parallel careers in teaching, writing & photography. He began his professional career as a young graphic artist working for designer Charles Eames, and in the 1970’s became Assistant to Ansel Adams and printer of Adams’ Yosemite Special Edition prints. Ted was an Instructor at Adams’ Annual Yosemite Workshop for many years, and taught college-level photography at Stanford, University of Oregon, and several California community colleges. He continues to lead field workshops & master classes from time to time on topics of artistic development. Ted is co-author (with David Bayles) of the classic artists’ survival guide Art & Fear, and author of its companion volume, The View From The Studio Door. A large selection of Ted’s earlier photographic art appears in his monograph Scenes of Wonder & Curiosity. Ted's photography engages a wide range of contemporary subject matter, while continuing the West Coast tradition of fine craftsmanship and printmaking. His art has been widely exhibited and is included in major museum collections nationally. His work is represented by The Ansel Adams Gallery.
