I have enjoyed photographing the autumn colors during the first two weeks of October in northern Michigan for decades. For years, I wanted to extend my time amid incredible autumn colors. Now I am doing that at Great Smoky Mountains National Park with my photography friends who live there. I hope you will join us for an incredible intensive photo workshop that will be tremendously fun, highly educational, and will make you a far more accomplished landscape photographer.

Please join us for a solid week of being fully immersed in nature and photography. To register, simply send an email to:

John and the folks of the Smoky Mountain School of Photography are looking forward to seeing you in the Fall!
