ShutterSmith Photography

Welcome, I hope that you enjoy my Photographic work, I know that I enjoy doing it.

Photography has always been a passion of mine since I was a small child. I would beg that we could set up our dark room in the basement so that we could see our pictures come alive.  Today, I enjoy taking the pictures in the field, but perfecting them mostly with Lightroom and sometimes Photoshop is equally exciting.

I was an engineering major while in college.  We got to take a certain number of electives and I decided that it would be fun to take a photo journalism course.  At the end of the course, my instructor talked to me about pursuing a career in photojournalism.  I did a few things over the next few years while in grad school.  Working for a small newspaper plus doing informal portraits and a couple weddings, but I decided to primarily pursue the technical fields that I had expertise in.

I have now decided that it is time to take the suggestion of my photography instructor of nearly 40 years ago to pursue a career in photography.

Welcome to my adventure!
