I had an excellent photography experience with Chris and Bonnie in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. They both have great patience for instruction, guiding, and explaining the technical side of photography; all helping to create an artistic image. Chris is a pro at critiquing images and offering guidance on composition, lighting, and post-processing techniques. I highly recommend their workshops to anyone interested in landscapes, waterfalls, and self-discovery through photography.

Christie, we thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with you and John photographing at the many waterfalls and cascades along Big Creek! And your skill at post processing during our session the next day was impressive. We're pleased that our guidance was helpful in your photography and artistry journey!

Wow! The most productive day ever of my photographic career ever and above and beyond that, it was a joy to be with Chris and Bonnie for the day. Not only are they both excellent photographers and teachers, but they have boundless energy and knowledge of the Asheville area. Had I tried to learn the basics of the area on my own it would have taken several trips vs up and running in just one day!

We started well before dawn to get in position for some sunrise vistas, then we photographed several waterfalls, and finally, we shot a several different abstractions which are my favorites. I recommend the full day tour as it allows you to change locations and subjects a number times and get to know the area better. I learned a number of new techniques and came home with some great shots! I have taken a number of photographic classes and tours, but Chris and Bonnie's was by far the best.

We went on a day-long private photo tour with Bonnie and Chris. It was an extremely positive experience and worth every penny. They were able to make quick assessment of our photo skills and tailor their instruction to our abilities. They instructed us both in how to use the camera effectively and how to compose the best shots. I had a new camera which intimidated me; by the time the tour was over, I felt very comfortable with it. They took us to places on the Blue Ridge that we wouldn’t have been able to find by ourselves and showed us very interesting aspects of those places. In addition, they are very nice people, and it was very enjoyable to spend the day with them. We will probably go with them again in the future.

I had a wonderful day with Chris photographing the autumn colors, both vistas and waterfalls, Chris was an excellent guide and teacher. I don't shoot as often as I would like and hence have to be reminded of certain things. Chris was both knowledgeable and patient. He has a great eye and pointed out several things I would have missed. Book early because they will fill up!

First, my apologies for not posting sooner.

I took the full day photography tour with Chris & Bonnie mid May, 2022.

I have had my Nikon D3100 with a 28 to 300 mm lens for a long time. I used it primarily to point & shoot using limited automatic features of the camera. Chris was very patient teaching me the broader capabilities of the camera utilizing the manual settings. We additionally compared the photo's taken with the manual settings versus the automatic settings to see the enhancements that could be made. Photo's were taken of waterfalls, vista's & wild flowers along with Blue Ridge Parkway. Bonnie pointed out areas that I would have overlooked & assisted in framing the picture to yield the most interest. It was an enjoyable day stopping at multiple beautiful spots.
