You will gather for dinner and a pre-workshop discussion with Byron on Friday evening (Optional). Saturday morning at sunrise you will begin the field sessions. You will be moving from one of Byron's favorite shooting locations to another, stopping only for meals along the way. Saturday afternoon you will be a time for image critique. You will shoot Sunday morning and use this time to start applying what you learned in the field and during the critique on Saturday. The workshop ends at noon on Sunday.

Most locations will be near to the vehicles but some locations may involve some hiking (usually a mile or less).

Hotel recommendations and other information will be sent upon paid registration.  You may book your accommodations at the host hotel or feel free to choose your own place to stay.  (Airfare, meals and accommodations are not included in the price of the workshop.)

Every bit as magnificent as the Smoky Mountains with far less congestion, Big South Fork National Recreation area in Tennessee is one of the most beautiful and unique areas of the United States both geologically and biologically. Byron has been photographing in the Big South Fork National Recreation Area regularly for more than 24 years. It is a land of striking contrasts, with the steep bluffs, waterfalls and stunning gorges so characteristic of the Cumberland Plateau. There are also natural arches, deep hardwood forests, boulder filled rivers and breathtaking overlooks.

Byron will help you in the field where he will guide you to some of his favorite spots and assist you personally in bringing back the best images that you possibly can. He will help you with all technical aspects of your photography including; Exposure, depth of field, histograms, choosing the correct aperture, maximizing image quality in every situation.

You will create macro and abstract images as well as landscapes in a variety of situations. More importantly, Byron will assist you in refining and expanding your vision so that you not only bring back beautiful images but you learn technical and compositional skills that can help grow your photography in the future.​

In the interest of giving his workshop clients his full attention while in the field, Byron does not shoot for his own personal use during the workshop.​

​For beginners to advanced photographers with an interchangeable lens camera.
