Photographer Genelda Myers lives with her family in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, a setting whose craggy beauty allows her to constantly practice her specialty: outdoor photography. Drawing on a college degree in photography and graphic design, Myers directs traditional yet relaxed shoots that capture subjects at ease amid scenic outdoor environs. The resulting images, which Genelda converts to print and digital forms, chronicle landmark moments ranging from a newlywed’s first kiss to a child’s first altercation with a garden hose.
Preacher and photographer Jim Eastin shares his passion for storytelling through Taking Better Photos classes and tours. During the Smokies tour, Jim teaches group members how to use their cameras to wordlessly tell stories about nature. Photographers practice shooting, and Jim gives them tips on how to make a compelling photograph. For those who prefer to tour at their own pace, Jim’s tours are available on audio CD. Alternatively, Jim’s library of instructional DVDs facilitate at-home learning and include titles such as Composition and Creativity, Photography at Night, and Photo Editing on Your Computer.

Mustapha Moussa has a passion for documentation. After a stint capturing local stories as a videographer for an African television station, he began working with still photography, eventually coming to America to pursue studies in photojournalism and broadcast media at the University of Tennessee. Today, his keen eye for detail and journalistic understanding of visual narrative help him capture the deep emotion and kinetic movement of weddings and get-togethers. After posing groups for photos or catching natural smiles from the sidelines, the expert returns to MIA Photographers to create online proofs, CDs, and prints ideal for showing people what you looked like before your head got stuck in a jar of molasses.
