Fall Colors in the Smokies Workshop with Willard Clay (and Me) – Oct. 18-21, 2013

What could be better than being in the right place at the right time to capture the incredible Autumn colors in the Smokies, except to be there with enthusiastic fellow photographers, plus the expertise of four experienced photography teachers?

Workshops through the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont are unique because they feature four instructors and lots of field work, plus practical classroom and post-processing time—all topped off with a fun critique of images made during the weekend. In addition to truly useful discussions and feedback about the images, the critique session features wine and cheese. And lots of laughs.

Having four instructors guarantees you different points of view, and as much or as little individual assistance as you’d like throughout the entire weekend.

Yours truly starts the weekend at 2:00 pm on Friday, October 18, with a discussion of field equipment and techniques to ensure that you can capture the images you intend.

I also end the long weekend with a couple hours of post-processing instruction from 10:00 through noon on Monday, October 21. Using images made during the weekend, we discuss and demonstrate techniques you can use to get the most out of your images—not that yours need much at all, of course!

As a special attraction this Fall, we’re going to have a raptor shoot at the Tremont campus for anyone who wants to participate.

The entire weekend, including field and classroom instruction, dorm room, and all food is only $611! Even transportation to the field locations is included, if you’d like. That’s quite a bargain.

There is a limit on the number of participants so we can keep the student/instructor ratio small, so reserve your place today. You’ll soon see why so many people come back each year.

      Hi, Marc. We’re waiting to see if things are resolved and the Park reopens. If it gets too close, it will be postponed to November. Someone from Tremont will be in touch within a couple days.

      Look forward to seeing you there. Thanks,
