Join award winning photographer Tommy White as we explore our favorite locations in the Great Smoky Mountains. Pack your boots and get your cameras ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Long Mountain Range Vistas, Winding Rivers, Waterfalls, Wildflowers, bridges and more.  Spend the midday hours unlocking the secrets of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  The lush summer greens will be in full swing, the creeks and rivers will be refreshing and the early mountain air will be crisp.
