Few places rival the diversity of spring in the Great Smoky Mountains. The forest begins to awaken from its winter slumber in late March through early April and comes to a full-blown eruption of wildflowers in mid to late April. Many trillium species, jack-in-the pulpit, fringed phacelia, wild geranium, dwarf crested iris, and many others carpet the forest floor. Ferns emerge among the fresh green mosses and numerous mountain streams and waterfalls are in full flow. Come join like-minded nature photographers and be inspired by incredible sunrises and sunsets from the highest mountains in the Smokies. There are so many subjects, and during our week together we will lead you to a multitude of enchanting subjects in gorgeous locations.

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