What better place to celebrate fall and improve your nature photography skills than in Great Smoky Mountains National Park? There will be demonstrations on Photoshop techniques, close-up techniques, and wildlife photography. One of the highlights of every workshop is the concluding group photo review of work completed during the weekend.

In addition to the presentations and demonstrations, there will be an emphasis on photographing in the field, one-on-one 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. The program lasts from Friday afternoon to Monday mid-morning.

Cost: $750. 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.
