Elk Rut

October 2nd - 4th, 2022,

Maggie Valley, N.C.

Instructors - Tom Croce

Join me in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains for three days of photographing elk in the Cataloochee Valley and along the Oconaluftee River. The weather is always a determining factor in the exact schedule, but a tentatively we will plan on spending mornings and evenings along the Oconaluftee River and the Cataloochee Valley Photographing the Elk rut. We will spend an afternoon or two reviewing images and processing techniques with Lightroom and Photoshop.

In order to insure the maximum amount of personal attention the number of participants for this workshop is limited to 2. Participants should have a strong understanding of exposure and know how to operate your camera. Each day's schedule will vary depending on the weather, but in general we will be photographing all day. This will be hands on learning and all questions and issues will be addressed in the field.
