A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Tremont Institute Spring Photography Workshop up in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  This was actually the third time I’d been to this particular workshop, and as usual, I had a great time and brought home some images that I’m really proud of (some of you may remember “the tree” from last year).  As someone who is actively trying to improve, this particular workshop is always inspirational and can shape the way I approach my photography for a good time to come.  Good stuff!

The workshop itself is led by photographer Bill Lea who is, among other things, famous for his bear images.  This year on the last day of the event, myself and a couple of the other participants were lucky enough to find a young black bear wandering around the park.  Seeming to not even notice we were there, the bear just went about its business of finding stuff to eat as we clicked away.  Such an amazing experience.

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll share some more of the images I captured from the workshop.  Until then, go tell your mom you love her! 🙂  Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
