Featured photographer

John Smith

How did you get started with photography?

I got started with photography when my grandfather gave me a manual film camera when I was 10. I loved the feeling of being able to capture memories and create art - it was my creative outlet. At 16, my father bought me a DSLR camera and enrolled me in a 2 month photography course which allowed me to hone my skills and turn this hobby into a passion.

What do you love about your job?

I love telling stories. They say a picture is worth a thousand words - it's true. Photography allows me to capture special moments in people's lives and share their story in a way that is honest, artistic, and unique. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the smile on my clients' faces when they go through the photo album for the first time. Their eyes light up as they remember the day of the shoot - a wedding, engagement, birthday, etc. I love that I get to create that moment of joy.
