Bill Lea, a nationally recognized nature photographer, has been teaching this annual workshop since 1992. Springtime is a glorious time of year in the mountains. 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. The workshop emphasizes wildlife, landscape, and macro photography. Bill and his fantastic team of instructors tailor each program to the interests and skill level of each individual participant with plenty of one-on-one instruction. Field sessions and lectures will cover the use of light, composition, and equipment. Program lasts from Friday afternoon to Monday mid-morning.
Lead Instructor: Bill Lea may best be known for his artistic documentation of deer and bear behavior, the various moods of the Great Smoky Mountains, and southern ecosystems. He is the author or coauthor of several other photography books, and over 7,000 of his photos have appeared in publications including Audubon calendars, BBC Wildlife, Defenders of Wildlife, National Geographic, Nature Conservancy, and National Wildlife.
