Mountain Lens is an extraordinary setting to experience photography programs that are highly educational and inspirational. Our mission is to provide the finest technical and creative resources for photographers and other artists in a motivating, nurturing and beautiful natural environment.
Embedded in our twenty-acre mountain setting is a high-tech classroom as well as elegant accommodations for out-of-town guests. Whether a beginner or an experienced photographer, either one-on-one or in small-groups, you will be immersed in a beautiful environment in which to learn and master your technical and creative skills.
AnD just outside of our comfortable and well-equipped training center are twenty acres that feature ponds, waterfalls, and over a mile of cleared trails and foot bridges along meandering creeks, through a forested hillside, and up to a boulder-strewn hilltop. Photographic opportunities abound without ever needing to venture out to nearby DuPont State Forest or the Pisgah National Forest.
