Join Me at the Great Smoky Mountains Photography Summit, October 26-30, 2016

This fall, I’ll be one of the featured instructors at the 2nd Annual Great Smoky Mountains Photography Summit, which will take place during the week of October 26-30, 2016 at the Tremont Lodge and Resort in Townsend Tennessee.

Set during the peak of fall colors, the GSMPS offers a unique and intimate opportunity to surround yourself with outdoor and nature photography and learn from a number of accomplished pros.

With both guided and un-guided field sessions, panel discussions, classes, critique sessions, keynote presentations, small “break-out sessions,” a mini trade show and evening “Fireside Fellowships,” you’ll have unprecedented access to interact on a personal level with the team of instructors, as well as with other participants. This year, the roster also includes Bill Fortney, Jack Graham, Matt Kloskowski, Deborah Sandidge, Richard Bernabe and more. See the full list below.

In addition, there will be reps on hand from a number of companies, including FujifilmSigmaManfrotto and Macgroup, so you’ll be able to check out and demo a wide selection of cameras, lenses, tripods, filters, etc…

Used Photo Pro will also be there offering cash for your used camera equipment, in case you’re looking to upload and/or upgrade.

I’m honored to be one of the instructors for this year’s summit, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with other photographers, meeting some of these very accomplished pros myself, and of course, making new friends.

Also, I know that Tennessee is a lot closer than Alaska for many people, so I’m excited to have the opportunity to meet some of my followers and teach other photographers who aren’t able to make it all the way up here.

The 2016 GSMPS is limited to only 200 participants, and I’m told that it WILL sell out quickly. (As of right now, there are only about 50 spots left.If you’re interested in being a part of this immersive photography week, be sure and visit their website to see more info and register for the event.

I hope to see you there!

  • Well, normally hit up GM in mid-October, or head up to my home in Downeast Maine. In 2015 I went to Maine, thinking I’lll hit GM in 2016. But since it’s going to be a freakin’ zoo with every wanna be a photographer paying to shoot shoulder to shoulder, I guess I’ll go back to Maine…
