Great Smoky Mountains Fall with Tom Mace

Come join us on a breathtaking journey as we explore the Great Smoky Mountains as Mother Nature colors the landscape for truly remarkable photo opportunities. This 3 ½ day 4 night trip will give you opportunities to not only capture the essence of fall, but a great chance to photograph wildlife in fall back drops. We have scouted the area and know where our clients can achieve the best success in photographing wildlife and surreal landscapes. Some of the best Fall colors in the world occur every year in the Appalachian Mountain Range; photographers can spend a lifetime and never capture it all. We will also take you on a drive that will afford opportunities for mountain views, waterfalls, and much more. This is such a popular trip, we scheduled 3 of them in a row. Tripod Travelers provides all ground transportation, meals, hotel, and most importantly coaching on different photography techniques to ensure you go home a better nature photographer with memories to last a lifetime. Not only are your group leaders experts in photographing and navigating these magnificent landmarks; they pride themselves on maintaining and respecting the natural environment of all parks they visit.

This is an all inclusive workshop. All workshops, ground transportation, hotel, meals, fees, and the little things are included in this price.
