After spending seven years of college studying classical piano, Charles Cramer visited Yosemite National Park, and soon realized he wanted out of those tiny practice rooms. Realizing the similarities between interpreting music and interpreting a negative, he soon became enamored with making prints.

Thirty years later, he is recognized as a master printmaker in both darkroom-based dye transfer printing, and now in digital processes. Cramer was selected by the National Park Service to be an artist-in-residence in Yosemite in 1987 and again in 2009. Cramer teaches digital printing for the Ansel Adams Gallery Workshops, John Sexton Workshops, and others.
