He was born February 20, 1902 to Charles and Olive Adams in upper class scotland. Ansel had no siblings. they moved to america later in 1902.
Ansel had a photographic memory, so this helped him a
lot when he was taking a picture to visualize what he was doing. it helped him take all of his beautiful photographs. He liked to photograph nature more than anything else, and you will rarely see a picture of his that isn't of nature.
