Great Smoky Mountains Fall Workshop


October 27-29, 2017



Join us for an incredible long weekend of photography instruction surrounded by stunning fall scenery, as we work our way through Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the surrounding areas, including the sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We will begin our days with sunrise and shoot until sunset, packing the days with a variety of subjects, from mountain streams, wide vistas, waterfalls, historical buildings, and so much more!

As with all nature, the changing of the leaves is unpredictable, but we have chosen an optimum historical weekend for maximum fall color.  Workshop locations may change based on fall color and elevation.  We want you to have the best experience possible.

The workshop will be limited to a maximum of six participants, allowing you to receive as much or as little instruction as you need.  This workshop is designed for all levels of skill, whether you are just starting out, or want to tighten up your technique.  Focus will be on shooting in changing light and weather conditions, camera settings, tripod use, effective settings for running streams, waterfalls, sunrise, sunset, wildlife, and much more.  I will be available at all times to answer questions and help you get the most out of your camera.  I may also shoot alongside you on occasion, to help with technique, but the focus is all on you getting the best shots from your equipment.

                                                              Transportation and meals are not included.

It is recommended that you arrive on Thursday and stay in Townsend, TN to be ready for an early morning start on Friday.  We will shoot all day Friday and Saturday and end around noon on Sunday.

Foxglade Photography Tours operates under authorized permit of the National Park Service.

Advance registration is required.  A non-refundable $100 deposit will secure your spot, with the remainder due 60 days before the workshop. Click here for our Cancellation Policy.  Feel free to email me at [email protected], if you have any additional questions.  When I receive your deposit, I will send additional information on the tour.  Be sure to reserve early to guarantee your spot. As this is peak "leaf peeping" season in the area, you will need to book your hotels on Townsend, TN (Thursday night) and Cherokee, NC (Friday/Saturday night) as early as possible.  Rooms will fill quickly!  I have blocked a group of rooms at each location, but can also give recommendations for your stay.
