Elk Expedition (Cherokee, NC)

September 30-Oct. 2 and Oct. 2-4, 2024 (both are FULL but email for waitlist)

Cost: $1350 ($650 Spouse/Guest)

This is your chance to photograph magnificent elk and so much more in the mountains of North Carolina. This expedition will take us to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park right outside Cherokee, NC.

We are limiting the size of the group to 3-4 maximum and have made it a 3 day, 2 night outing to leave more time to shoot scenics, maybe a sunrise or sunset, waterfall, etc. Our trip will begin by meeting at the Fairfield Inn in Cherokee on the first afternoon at 3pm. We will check in and then carpool a short ride (10 mins) into the park. We will photograph the elk in the late afternoon light. After dinner, we will get some rest before leaving early the next morning to go back to photograph not only the elk but also a picturesque area including a mill and maybe even a waterfall. Depending on how the elk sightings have been we will do some other photography during the afternoon of the second day and the early morning of the final day. We will depart after lunch on the final day when everyone will head home.

Cost includes 2 nights of private room lodging, all meals, snacks, and instruction. Deposit of $500 required to reserve spot and the remaining balance will be due 45 days before the trip departure date. Minimum 3 participants, maximum 4.
