"The Great Smoky Mountains"

A Visual Journey

This book is now available. It features photography from all around the Great Smoky Mountains and highlights some of the beauty that the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer. This collection of work is produced in collaboration with my wife DeeDee. Steve Kemp from "The Great Smoky Mountains Association" has written the foreword for this book.


"As you turn each page, feasting your eyes on this photographic treasure trove, you will be lured to follow in the footsteps of photographers Lee Mandrell and DeeDee Niederhouse-Mandrell. Take in the beauty of the Smokies, as you encounter streams, waterfalls, and forests as well as black bears and other wildlife. The Mandrells use their photographic gifts to record the beauty as God’s ever-changing light transforms each scene before them. This book has been a true labor of love!" — Gary Moore, author of Brown County Mornings


"With their timely and exquisite photography the Mandrells capture the seasons, sensations and moods of the national park level scenery that is the Great Smoky Mountains." - Johnny Molloy, author of Top Trails: Great Smoky Mountains National Park
