Unlike many photography workshops, our price includes meals, lodging and instruction by one of the finest teams of photography instructors anywhere in the country. Combine that with the location inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park and it is a real steal.

There will be demonstrations on Photoshop techniques, close-up techniques, and wildlife photography.  And, of course, the concluding critique session of work completed during the workshop. In addition to the presentations and demonstrations, there will be an emphasis on photographing in the field, one-on-one instructional interactions with instructors, free-time for those who want to do some work on their own, and an optional photographic trip to Cades Cove.  The workshop is designed for all levels of expertise, from serious beginners and beyond. Program lasts from Friday afternoon to Monday mid-morning.
