The Destination

Reelfoot is the only large natural lake in Tennessee, and gives its name to Lake County, Tennessee, in which it is located.

Reelfoot Lake State Park, located in the northwest corner of Tennessee, is one of the greatest hunting and fishing preserves in the nation. The lake encompasses 25,000 acres (15,000 of which are water) and harbors almost every kind of shore and wading bird, as well as the golden and American bald eagles. Other animals are also diverse and abundant here. Its many species of flowering and non-flowering plants attract botany enthusiasts from all over the country. Cypress dominates the margins of the lake, but many other trees and shrubs are also present. There are over 240 plus species of birds in the Reelfoot Lake area.

I’ll be right there to give you tips on how to take a sunrise and sunset photo. How to photograph birds and other wildlife. Feel free to ask me questions at any time! I’m here to take your photography to the next level. You will find this to be an Awesome Photo Experience!!!

Friday Night 

  • Brief meeting 5:00 PM at Bluebank Resort to discuss upcoming Saturday timelines and events. Get to meet one another. Then we will leave at promptly at 7:00 PM for those that are here for a sunset photo event. The drive is approximately 30 mins. It’s an awesome place for sunsets, so plan on being there if you can.


  • Sunrise from the banks of Reelfoot Lake. We typically leave around 4:45 am to get there at least 30 minutes – 45 minutes before sunrise.
  • 1/2 day pontoon boat trip around Reelfoot Lake. Looking for birds, (Egrets, Herons, Ducks, Eagles, possible chicks). Also, stop for lotus flowers, and other natural animals.
  • Lunch out on the lake. We will dock and have lunch at a local restaurant on the water.
  • In the afternoon we will walk around the boardwalk area and photograph. Usually see dragonfly’s, frogs, flowers and birds.
  • Sunset from the banks of Reelfoot Lake. We want to be in position at least 30 minutes before the sun sets.

Sunday Morning – BONUS

For those who want to stay over, I’ve arranged for us to photograph Eagles in their large cage. Also, have arranged to photograph different Owls outside of their cage in a prearranged setting. This is the icing on the cake for this photo workshop. You can get some amazing up close and personal photos of these birds!!!

As noted above, we will do some walking on this workshop. Walking will typically be easy. Every participant must complete and sign a standard liability waiver and medical form before participating in this workshop.

“Blair was one of our volunteer photographers at our Rock for Love 4 weekend of concerts that raised money for the Church Health Center. Blair’s photos are amazing and he was quick to share them with us so that we could make the most of our post-event publicity. Blair was easy to work with and his photos, both of the performers and the concert-goers, was really something special. He has a knack for catching the grit of a sweaty night at the Hi Tone and the pure fun of a run through the sprinkler (it was very hot at our day show).” Marvin Stockwell, Public Relations Manager, Church Health Center
