Note: There is a date change from original flyer.

The Date Is Now: May 10-14th, 2017

This change was due to a conflict in Townsend, TN on the original week.





The Smokies in the spring is one of my favorite places to make images. We will explore Cades cove on this event. But unlike some past events, we will spend additional time exploring many of the other wonders of the Smokies. Hidden trails to wildflowers, hikes to waterfalls, and sunrises and sunsets high in the mountains.  Bring a telephoto lens for wildlife but don't forget that macro lens. The use of filters to control light and shutter speed will be key learning experiences. Our home base will be the Townsend Gateway inn, Townsend, TN and the cost includes a Friday night cookout and campfire.


This event is sponsored by Singh-Ray Filters and Singh-Ray Filters will be available to try. From beginner to advanced, Vinny Colucci will raise the bar and push your level.
