As a follow-up to the buzzing story from earlier in the week, a California woman has come forward with a rather convincing claim that her Uncle Earl Brooks shot the $200 million+ Ansel Adams negatives in 1923.
She has original prints in her possession that are strikingly similar to negatives from the Ansel Adams garage sale collection.
Rick Norsigian purchased a box of 65 glass negatives 10 years ago at a yard sale in SoCal for $45 have been estimated to be worth at least $200 million.
These glass plate negatives were thought to have been lost long ago in a darkroom fire in 1937. Experts speculate that Adams somehow left them behind when teaching a photography glass in Pasadena in the 1940s.

I’ve been a SmugMug user for a little over 4 years now. And, if you’ve been reading Photography Bay for a while, you know that I’ve been a big fan since day one. The handful of times that I’ve emailed customer service, I’ve gotten an response and solution within minutes. They listen to their customers, and the prices are incredibly generous for the service delivered.
I’ve heard about SMUGs (aka SmugMug User Groups) before, but I had never been to SMUG meet up – until this week. [Read more…]
So here’s the deal – I’ve got some down time scheduled for about a week, starting March 20. And, while I have some reviews and other content that I have written in advance scheduled for that week, I thought I would open up Photography Bay to other photographers (amateur or pro) to share their thoughts with the rest of the Photography Bay community.
If you have something worthwhile to say that generally relates to photography, whether it be cameras, lenses, techniques, tips, etc., I’d be happy to consider your guest post.
Send your topic ideas via the Contact Form, and I’ll let you know if it will work. If I get too many guest posts, I’ll cut it off based on a first-come first-served basis.
The posts will run between Saturday, March 20 and Sunday, March 28.
For every guest post, I’ll include a short bio with a couple of links back to your site or work elsewhere on the web.
Again, you can submit your post ideas or any questions through the Contact Form.
Photographers all over the world are joining together and giving back to those who are in need today. More at Help-Portrait.com.
