About Deb Campbell

Thanks for stopping by. New Photos are being added often, so check back soon.

My passion has and always will be photography. Through my photos, I attempt to draw the viewer in and make them feel as if they are there with me. I have always called East Tennessee home and I have been an avid photographer for over 30 years. I am a Certified Photographer, having completed the Photography Certification Program through State Tech/Pellissippi Community College. I enjoy all types of photography, but mostly wildlife, scenic and nature.

Most of my photos are taken within the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, particularly in Cades Cove. I love the cove for all that it is. A home to various species of wildlife, birds, insects and wildflowers. As well as a window into the past with old churches, cabins and homesites, and a place to just stop and take in all the breathtaking views. I try to capture as many elements of this area as I can. I am drawn back to the cove time and again. There is always something new to photograph. I am also lured to the rivers, streams and waterfalls of the Smokies. The cool, fresh water refreshes the soul as well as the body.

I am married with two adult children. My husband, Marc and I enjoy traveling in our Class C Motorhome. I plan the trips, with photo destinations in mind, and he gets us there along with our dog, Scout. Anywhere I travel, my camera is always by my side. A trusty companion on my life's journey. If you have the time, please sign my Guestbook,. I'd love to hear from you.


**PLEASE NOTE: Although I truly appreciate the attention my photography receives, please do not use any of my photos without my permission.

All images are available for purchase. Thanks.

Please keep in mind that photography equipment, travel and time to do so can be very expensive. I am often asked for use of my photos for free. If you can use the low-res photo as it appears on my website with my logo on it and a link to my website, that is fine, with my permission. I am overwhelmed with emails asking for hi-res versions of my photos for various things, with the promise of a photo credit. After having numerous photos published with a photo credit, the novelty of that has worn off. If you want to use a hi-res photo for publication, I need to be compensated in some way. High Resolution JPEG download files with license agreement are available for purchase here on my website.

Thanks for understanding.

**All of my images are available as Fine Art Prints. Click the PURCHASE tab for more information.
