A History of the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee

The Professional Photographers of East Tennessee (PPETN) was originally founded as the Smoky Mountain Professional Photographers Association many years ago.

As most of the history of PPETN has only been passed down through word of mouth to this point, PPETN is currently researching and recording the history of the association to publish here in the future.

There is no current estimated time of completion for this project, but PPETN does recognize the importance of preserving history for future generations of PPETN members to understand and appreciate the legacy of professional photography in East Tennessee.
