Elk & Waterfall Photo Tour w/ Photography Lessons

Need a guide to help you find the elk in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park? We’re offering just that! We currently have a 100% success rate in finding the elk!

For our private Half-Day Elk & Waterfall Photo Tour, we put a lot of effort into thinking about what would be the most enjoyable half-day winter tour we could possibly put together. What we came up with is a trip that takes you about an hour west of Asheville out to Great Smoky Mountain National Park to see the elk herds in Cataloochee Valley and visit a couple of waterfalls. Our Elk & Waterfall tours are very adventurous and sure to please!

We know when and where to find the elk
We can get you (safely) close to the animals!
We’ll make sure you have the right settings to capture the elk!

Things we'll cover on this tour:

- Long exposure settings for getting smooth, silky waterfall effects
- What filters to use and why
- The best settings to use for wildlife
- And so much more!
