The latest in our video series profiling photographers in their favourite environments was filmed last November in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, as the last of the autumn colours gave way to the winter snow. Our guide was Michele Sons, a southern Virginia-based photographer and former Luminous Landscape grant recipient. She specializes in fine art Landscape photography of the Appalachian region and her work is based on a soft, subtle, pared-down aesthetic, which is a fresh contrast to the bold, overly-saturated scenes so prevalent in the medium today. Fog, mist, and soft light feature often in her images. Her work is featured in the National Geographic Beautiful Landscapes 2018, 2019, and 2020 calendars.
