Join us in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains for three days of photographing elk in the Cataloochee Valley and landscapes and fall color along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

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.
