On my smoky mountain photography workshops I work with you to decide the best fit for your trip. Taking you to all of the right places to capture beautiful memories of your trip. In addition to getting you to the right place at the right time I will teach you exactly how to get the most out of your camera! Teaching anything from the basics to focus stacking and realistic HDR.
