Jackson Hole and the Grand Teton Mountains – A Photographer’s Paradise By Barry Spruce

The LeConte Photographic Society in Sevierville, TN will host Barry Spruce on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at the King Family Library at 10:00 a.m. for the above program.  This program will be in the Bridgemont Room and is free and open to the public.  THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM JANUARY DUE TO THE SNOW.

Many locations that photographers travel to are much better for either wildlife or landscape photography. Rarely does one location have multiple wildlife subjects and exceptional landscape opportunities. Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the Grand Teton National Park have both and are truly a nature photographer’s paradise.

Take a journey to the Northwest where herds of bison are in the hundreds, the Snake River winds its way through amber-colored prairies, and snow-capped peaks hover over 13,000 feet.  See the variety of wildlife and learn how to photograph it with the beautiful backdrop of the Teton Mountains.  Learn techniques to capture landscapes and wildlife in this area from an experienced nature and wildlife photographer.  You will come away with helpful techniques to apply to your own nature photography.

Join us for this photographic presentation of one of the most photographed parks in North America. See the variety of wildlife and learn how to photograph it with the beautiful backdrop of the Teton Mountains.  For more information on our photo club go to www.lecontephotographic.com


Barry has been fortunate to live on both ends of the Appalachian Mountain range that runs North and South inside the East Coast of the United States of America. He was born and raised on the coast of New Hampshire in Northern New England. Barry moved to East Tennessee at the end of 1990 after vacationing in the area that summer.

After switching to digital photography in 2004, Barry started putting together a portfolio in hopes to sell his work upon his retirement. Little did he know that retirement would be sooner than later. In 2007 at the age of 43 he retired with 25 years in automotive parts. He soon began his 2nd career in Nature and Wildlife Photography by selling his prints at both indoor and outdoor events. He opened his own gallery in 2015 in Townsend, Tennessee. In 2017 he closed that gallery to open his current Cades Cove Gallery also located in Townsend. His wife retired in 2018 from the same company and began managing the gallery. This has allowed Barry to reach out into other avenues of Nature Photography including club presentations, teaching, guiding, and workshops.
