Mountain Light Gallery, Bishop

#4 of 13 in Things to do in Bishop
Fine art prints, photo workshops, and stock photography are at the heart of Mountain Light, a multi-faceted business established in 1983 by Galen and Barbara Rowell. Mountain Light Gallery welcomes the public, and Mountain Light’s stock photography department houses an edited collection of hundreds of thousands of Galen’s and Barbara’s color photographs, which have been broadly published in leading publications such as National Geographic, Life, Outside, Outdoor Photographer, Scientific American, Smithsonian, as well as in advertising, countless books and calendars, and in websites and online media.

Mountain Light is located in Bishop, California, south of Mammoth Lakes on Highway 395. In the Bishop Gallery we feature Galen’s best images from the High Sierra and Eastern Sierra as well as images from around the world. We also offer photography workshops taught by leading outdoor photographers such as David Muench, Elizabeth Carmel and Jerry Dodrill, and held in the stunning Eastern Sierra landscape and at world-class locations throughout the American West. Our workshops are widely regarded to be among the very best in the business.

Fine art prints, posters, books, videos and DVDs, calendars, apparel and accessories, note cards and Galen Rowell Singh-Ray neutral density graduated filters are available at the gallery as well as through our website at
