Gatlinburg, TN - Tourist Attractions and Street Photography at Night

Gatlinburg Real Estate Photography by Iran Watson

As an Atlanta Real Estate photographer and real estate agent in Marietta most of my photo shoots are somewhere in Metro Atlanta, mostly Cobb, Cherokee and Fulton County.  If you know any photographers, however, you know they take a camera with them everywhere and I'm no exception.  Even vacations end up with one or two impromptu photo shoots.  Recently, I brought my gear along on a weekend trip to one of my favorite places in the South, Gatlinburg, TN.


My family has been vacationing in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN long before I was even born.  Even though these two family friendly, Smoky Mountains tourist spots have grown considerably over the last 30+ years we've been going, there is something that always feels the same when I go there; something familiar and always welcoming.  I could never capture everything these places have to offer in a single trip so there are likely to be many more of these posts in the future.  

One of the best times to get out and see the sights is definitely after dark.  Hopefully these images will show you why.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Iran: I love the photos! You've done a great job. And, it applies to our home marketing, too. Many homes look so attractive when they are photographed at night form the front with lights on.

Thanks for the ideas!

Once Dollywood opened in 1986, the area has never been the same.

Iran - Great photos of your area.  Your having taken the pictures at night adds drama to the images.  My night photos don't come out as well.

Great photos!  Wonderful reminder to make use of night photography for photos that really stand out.  Did you use a tripod for your photos?
