Wat je gaat doen

Participants will have small classes teaching them how to use their personal cameras. I will meet with individuals or a group smaller that 6 participants and take them on a hands on photo safari in the Smoky Mountains while teaching them how to operate their camera. Class time runs about 1.5 hrs then we break for lunch at a delicious local BBQ house.
The safari will last 1.5 hours. It will begin with an overall class of how camera operations interact. Basically how to come away from auto setting and get the best images by using camera controls. We then practice camera operations. After that, we hit the road (trails) to photograph the best souvenirs - their own personal photo creations. They take home new knowledge, personal images, and a new appreciation for the art of photography.

I also offer stays at our Airbnb as an option. It was the first resort in Sevier County in 1884. The original cabin that remains is located on Historic Seaton Springs 11 acres. A cantilever barn built during that time, a log structure, babbling creek, and a small lake also occupy the private farm.

I visited the Smokey mountain with family the first time. I tried to explore activities in the area and found this photography class. Syresa is very knowledgeable on photo taking a gave a lot of tips that I will be using in the future. There were only my 17 years ole boy and I in the class so it is personalized enough for us to receive all the attention. The first part of the class is indoor going over the basics of camera setting. I forgot to mention Lonnie and Syresa owns a beautiful BnB and their yard was huge and nice enough for the second part of the class, which is practice the settings we went over in the first part of the class. After that we headed out for lunch, which was included in the package. Then the last part is to walk in the park to practice more shooting skills with moving butterflies, running water and the moving cars. Everything went really well. It was sunny at the first half of the session then it gets cloudy for the second half. We get to practice different settings with different natural lights. We ended the class before it started to rain. Thank you so much for spending your time with us. My son is happy to learn something that he can use for lifetime.

We learned a bunch. Being able to learn and practice the skills immediately really helps. Great experience. Would recommend to anyone that wants to learn about photography. The food was also really good.

My boys loved the class! They each learned new techniques and gained a better appreciation for outdoor photography. It was a great afternoon for them. The property was amazing. Thanks so much!!

I highly recommend this experience! Personal one on one instruction, very knowledgeable instructor and great locations. I had a very enjoyable time getting to know Syresa and learning new ideas on composition and framing shots. I already knew how to use most of the features on my camera, but lacked the creative side of it, how to creatively compose shots, how to recognize out of the ordinary perspectives. Syresa was great at that, encouraging me to walk all around the various locations and really explore. I had a great time and got some great shots that I never would have achieved on my own.

This experience was amazing. I came in with an eye for composition but zero technical skills and left feeling like I really understood how to use my camera finally! The beauty of the locations were very inspiring and made me want to spend the rest of my trip running around with my camera!
