Spring in the Great Smoky Mountains Photography Workshop

$699.00

Spring wildflowers covering the forest floor, rushing mountain streams surrounded by glowing green moss, cabins flanked by flowering dogwood, freak spring storms covering the mountain tops with snow are just a few of the photographic possibilities in the Great Smoky Mountains in the spring. This four day workshop will focus on areas where the spring is showing off and will compliment my fall workshop by visiting different areas of the park.

 

Dates:

  • April 6 to 9, 2017

Cost: $699  (A nonrefundable deposit of $350 is due at registration. The remainder is due 60 days before the workshop.)

Product Description

Itinerary

The itinerary for the Spring in the Great Smoky Mountains Photography Workshop is completely in the field. We’ll start at sunrise and end the day at sunset, so be prepared for long days. Depending on the conditions, we may swing into town for either lunch or dinner. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is vast, so it’s hard to see it all on one workshop, so this workshop has been designed to complement the locations on my Fall in the Smokies Workshop. We’ll go to locations that my fall workshop doesn’t visit (other than sunrise and sunset locations). The workshop will concentrate on the historic cabins in the park, the waterfalls and the spring flowers.

  • Day One: Sunrise to sunset in the field. We’ll discuss filter usage and exposure. Capturing waterfalls and macro.
  • Day Two: Sunrise to sunset in the field. We’ll discuss composition.
  • Day Three: Sunrise to sunset in the field. We’ll continue to fine-tune your compositions and techniques.
  • Day Four: Sunrise to sunset in the field. We’ll continue to fine-tune your compositions and techniques.

Note: The itinerary will be fluid based on the weather.

Lodging

There is no lodging partner for this workshop. There is camping in Elkmont and plenty of lodging options in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. I’ll book at Econo Lodge Inn & Suites on the River in Gatlinburg. I suggest you stay there, too. It makes carpooling and parking much easier.

Getting There

Gatlinburg is a small resort town serving the northern side of the park. The closest big city is Knoxville, TN. The closest airport is TYS-McGhee Tyson. TYS is about an hour drive from Gatlinburg. You take US-411 to Pigeon Forge and then US-321 into Gatlinburg. Atlanta is approximately 4 hours away on US-23 to US-441.
