Work Experience

J. Smith Freelance


I am a freelance photographer with three years of experience. I am well versed in several photographic disciplines and techniques, but my personal style tends to be more photojournalistic in nature.
I prefer to observe, waiting for all of the various elements present in my surroundings to create the right opportunity to create a photograph. My images often emphasize hard natural light and high contrast, combined with subtle application of artificial light sources.
I am available to shoot a wide variety of projects including events, portraits, and limited consignments.
