Galen and Barbra Rowell are superb photographers and this store is a gem of a store to visit while in Bishop. We have always enjoyed seeing their superb photography and usually buy the calendars and other items as well. It will inspire those who like to take pictures how magic this area is.

I had the privilege of meeting Galen and Barbara Rowell not long before their tragic deaths. To put it mildly, Mountain Light Gallery is an essential on a level equal to seeing the Sierra Nevada itself.

If you can make only one stop in Bishop, make it Mountain Light Gallery.

Galen Rowell was a special photographer and an inspiration to my husband. We kept our expectations low and were blown away by the quality and size of the gallery. Many of Galen's most famous photos were displayed, some with personal stories. You can purchase unsigned prints in several different size and most of his books. His wife Barbara's work was also represented and they display the work of other nature photographers. We could feel his presence and it triggered great memories of the photo shooting trips that my husband and I have taken. Please take the time to visit and appreciate a true artist.

for any photographer a must. I loved it there. The gallery has great photographs and great books. What I liked as well was that you can look around without being bothered by sales people. You can really enjoy the photography.

Actually, the Mountain Light Gallery is as much a tribute to Mr. Rowell as it is to the mountains he loved to photograph. He was a lover of California's Sierra Mountain Range very much in the tradition of a Muir or Adams, but he also was a mountain and rock climber. This is a wonderful gallery to visit and the staff are both very laid-back and helpful if you have questions about which of the many Rowell collections you might like to purchase.
