Smoky Mountains

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park sits atop the Spine of Time, a rugged 6000-foot mountain divide between North Carolina and Tennessee. The Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most biologically diverse in the entire National Park System, hosting more than 19,000 plant and animal species.

We will expertly guide you through this magnificent mountain wilderness and teach you how to best capture the Park’s old-growth forests, sweeping mountain vistas, cascading mountain rivers, bubbling streams, waterfalls, and vernal wildflowers. April and May are the wildflower months in the Smokies with different species blooming at different times, so bring your macro lens to capture some of the local colors up-close. The sunrises and sunsets with stacked layers of blue mountains are iconic Smoky Mountain scenes, and these images will stand out in your portfolio.

We will spend ample time helping you process your photos and giving instant feedback and critiques throughout the workshop so you can put what you’ve learned to use right away. 

Our workshop group is small, and every need is taken care of for you in advance. All you need to do is show up and focus on learning in one of the crown jewels of U.S. National Parks. Come join us. The Great Smoky Mountains await!
