Welcome to Member of the Week!  This week we meet Gordon Brugman of Smoky Moments Photography. 
Gordon has been photographing for over 30 years. I asked him what he loves to photograph the most, he replied, ” Landscapes and wildlife of the Great Smoky Mountains, using HDR photography, Ortonization and Photoshop techniques to share the beauty of my backyard with the world. “
Gordon says he gets his inspiration from the natural beauty of the everchanging Smoky Mountains. I asked him what was in his bag, he said, ” I shoot pretty simple, believing the eye is the most important photographic equipment at my disposal. My go-to camera is a simple Nikon D5000 using either an 18-55 Nikon zoom lens or my Tamron AF 70-300 Tele-Macro zoom lens. A 25 year old Slik Tripod (old school!), polarizers and a Nikon remote shutter trigger pretty much complete the package.”
I asked him if he could go back in time and give his younger self some advice, what would it be? He replied, “Consider every image an opportunity to hone your skills, learn techniques and advance your art, but not until first appreciating the moment in time you are about to capture. “
Thank you Gordon your work is beautiful and so are your words.
