PSC Guest Speaker

April 16, 2015  

Don McGowan, a native Georgian, moved to Sevier County, Tennessee in 1993 to live in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains. When his work was judged to be the "Best of the Weekend" at a nature photography workshop conducted by the Great American Photography Weekend in Gatlinburg in the spring of 1994, Don knew that his path laid in a career in photography, and, primarily, in nature images. He now lives on the non-crowded side of the Smokies at the head of Beaverdam Valley in Buncombe County, North Carolina.

He has worked in a commercial photo studio in Knoxville, Tennessee, and continues to collaborate with Noel Studios on projects. He has also worked as a photojournalist for The Mountain Press in Sevierville, Tennessee. From 1998 -2002 Don served as the staff photographer for Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, creating images for slide and audio-visual programs, as well as for newsletters, annual reports, brochures, print ads, and media campaigns.


Currently Don owns and operates EarthSong Photography, specializing in on-location, natural light commercial imaging; fine art nature prints and note cards; nature stock photography; environmental photojournalism; and photo tours/coaching in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. In 2003 he formed the "EarthSong Photography Workshops" company which offers in-depth nature photography weeklong programs in beautiful locations across the country.
