Great Smoky Mountains Photography Retreat -Early Bird Special-

April 26 - April 30

| $3650

Event Navigation

Springtime is one of the best times to visit the Smoky Mountains. You’ll experience a parade of wildflower blooms, each wave transforming the mountains with brilliant washes of color.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park straddles the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. The sprawling landscape encompasses lush forests and an abundance of wildflowers that bloom year-round. Streams, rivers and waterfalls appear along hiking routes that include a segment of the Appalachian Trail. This workshop is scheduled to offer the best all around opportunities the spring season has to offer, classic mountain vistas, flowing streams, waterfalls, wildflowers, historic barns and perhaps even bears!

This tour will greatly enhance your skill as a photographer. We will be doing a lot of landscape, wildlife, and macro photography. We also have a conference room reserved for additional critique sessions and lessons.

Early Bird Special Through March 31st!

Art Wolfe is an Authorized Permittee of the National Park Service.
