David Gardner: Printer for Ansel Adams

David Gardner has been a printer for most of his life. He began working on a newspaper when he was in the 8th grade at Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles, and wanted to make fine quality
prints of photographs as soon as he learned how.

In the November issue of the Photographers' Formulary monthly newsletter, we'll talk to Mr. Gardner about his life, and about how he became the printer for Ansel Adams.

On an another note, we'll read about David's once-in-a-lifetime experience when as a young Lieutenant, Junior Grade, he commanded a U.S. Navy gunboat only nine miles away from the detonation of the fifth nuclear device in the history of mankind.

Also in the newsletter, we'll follow up on the Great Picture, with an interview or two from the members of the Legacy Group, the six photographers responsible for building the world's largest disposable camera, and for making the world's largest photograph.

It will all be in the newsletter. Sign up now, and it's yours free, on the fifteenth of the month.
