The dynamic work of five well-respected professional photographers, Kevin Adams, Bill Lea, Susan Stanton, William A. Smith, and Donna Eaton, is mounted on canvas for this six-week show.

Kevin Adams, whose nature photographs appear regularly in books, magazines and advertisements, has been a professional photographer for more than 25 years. He is the author of nine books and shares his love of nature and photography through photo tours, workshops and seminars.

Bill Lea’s pristine nature photographs chronicle wildlife throughout the region, especially bears and deer, the Great Smoky Mountains and southern ecosystems. Through books, workshops, articles and presentations he communicates his enthusiasm for and expertise as a natural history photographer.

Susan Stanton is the founder of the Southern Appalachian Photographers Guild and a professional fine art photographer. With the southern Appalachians as her subject, her work has graced the covers of numerous magazines and been featured in solo and group shows and galleries around the state.

William A. Smith has been taking photographs for more than 50 years and is primarily a medium and large format photographer, specializing in black and white images. His work is included in private and corporate collections throughout the country.

Donna Eaton is one of the newest members of the guild. In addition to receiving many awards, her work has been published in magazines, websites, textbooks and can be found in private collections.

The professional photographers who make up the guild are offered membership based on their demonstrated photographic abilities, years of experience and dedication to the highest standards of quality.
