About Nye Simmons

My roots are in large format film using 4x5, 5x7 and 617 film. Like many (most?) of you, I have transitioned to digital imaging, now with the FujiFilm GFX100s. In addition to publishing my books and calendars, I offer small group photography workshops, both scheduled and bespoke, with an emphasis on photographic seeing and field techniques. I am on the web at Instagram at Instagram.

I am the author or co-author of 6 books and I was a contributing writer-photographer for the Ultimate Guide to Digital Nature Photography. I have been published in various regional and national magazines including National Geographic Adventure and National Geographic Traveler. I live in Knoxville, TN in the shadow of the Great Smokies. My latest book is an updated and revised guide — The Greater Smoky Mountains Photographer’s Guide.
