The Great Smoky Mountains contain sweeping panoramic views of the ancient mountains, rushing streams, cascading waterfalls, and old growth hardwood forests. These are each wonderful sites to behold and represent just a hint of the photographic opportunities that await. Come join me as we explore this unique ecosystem with cameras in hand. I will be right there beside you to provide photographic recommendations and instruction.
Tuesday night, May 8th, we will all meet at the Trail Head Steakhouse in Townsend, TN for an orientation and to go over the itinerary for the following three days as well as get a sense of what each of you is looking for out of the workshop. The May 8th welcome dinner is on us.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be filled, sunrise to sunset, with photographic opportunities as we explore Cades Cove, Greenbriar, Clingman's Dome and more. Finally, we will finish with a recap of the workshop and have breakfast Saturday morning, May 12th, as everyone leaves on their own. This meal will be on us as well. There could be an additional after workshop trip back into Cades Cove for those interested.
