Section: Chattanooga Skyline
Chattanooga photography, Tennessee is a city known for its breathtaking scenery and rich river heritage. For most, the vision of Chattanooga is partially framed by the towering Lookout Mountain. This is a popular vacation spot, with great hiking and biking trails. But if you think Tennessee’s beautiful scenery stops right at the state line, you’re clearly mistaken. Visit our hometown to see for yourself why some of America’s most scenic landscapes are located within the Great Smoky Mountains.
Section: Lookout Mountain
Travelers from all over the world visit Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga to see the spectacular views offered by the landscape. Many will take pictures of the entire mountain range, but few people know about a secret hike that leads you to an even better view. If you like to hike and find yourself in Chattanooga, make sure you check out this lesser-known trail on Lookout Mountain.
Section: Walnut Street Bridge
I’ve taken pictures of this bridge for the past two years and I’m still amazed at the intricately detailed architecture. It’s a classic Chattanooga bridge with an industrial twist. Looking down on this bridge is nothing like seeing it in person. I developed a method of taking crisp photographs from both ends of the bridge, capturing all of its beauty. Hopefully my photos can convey some of what it’s like to stand on this magnificent structure.
Section: Bluegrass Grille
The Bluegrass Grille is located on 1st avenue near the Walnut Street Bridge. This location has been so popular that they have opened a second location in Hixson. With the giant windows, fresh flowers, private booths and the leather seating, you feel like you are dining in an upscale metropolitan NY style steak house. The best part about eating at the Bluegrass Grille is it’s what you’re looking for in a restaurant.
Section: Tennessee Aquarium
When the Tennessee Aquarium staff started planning for fall 2015, they had a few photography milestones in mind that they wanted to achieve. One was to capture a few breathtaking photos from their very own escalator that would turn heads and get people interested in the facility’s collection. They wanted to sponsor a photo shoot with me but needed one big event to photograph. The Kicker: They had only until September 3rd to get everything done in order for their annual members’ preview of the facility on the 4th of September 2015.
The Chattanooga Riverwalk is a spectacular downtown attraction that provides tons of places for photography. If you’re in the area it’s well worth making the time to go and see why it’s called the Walnut Street Bridge, the High Bridge, the Cherokee-Haw Creek Bridge or sometimes just “the Wabasha Street Bridge” by folks who feel they don’t need to use all three names. The bridge is long and the middle part is gorgeous with the running water, paths and landscaping providing great opportunities for shots you’ll want to show your friends.
