Guy Webster, American Photographer

{Ansel Adams by Guy Webster}

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a talk given by
Guy Webster, presented by Ventura's Focus on the Masters. It was amazing to see this man as a celebrity after knowing him so long as a teacher and mentor. I love hearing him tell the grand stories of his life and career in his humble and honest tone.

These are some pieces from his impressive body of work...

{Liza Minelli}

{Truman Capote}

{Simon & Garfunkle}

{Natalie Wood}

{for the Monterey Pop Festival poster}

I especially love this one because it's of an old highschool friend and I'm almost certain I was there when it was taken. I remember it from a class sometime near Halloween when we all wore costumes to Guy's Ojai studio and took pictures.

{all photos from this post are by Guy Webster}


  1. I've been interested in photography since I was a child and I love Guy Webster's work!

  2. These images are incredible - what a talent! Natalie Wood just might be the most beautiful actress who ever lived.


  3. Was that Lotara in the high school photo???

  4. Love these shots! Will be looking up more Guy Webster work now...

  5. Wow! Amazing shots by Mr. Webster!

    You also take beautiful pictures!!

    Wanted to know if you every made it to Disney Land...if so...I would love to see more recent pics (at least more recent than mine taken in 1991!) of those "big puffy characters!"

    I am so glad you found my blog so that I could find you! Beautiful site!
    Much Happiness~
