Meet Brian Smith, an exceptional celebrity and portrait photographer.
Brian Smith is a Pulitzer prize winner who has photographed one luminary after another: Bill Gates, Anne Hathaway, Samuel L. Jackson, and the list just goes on.
In our interview Brian discussed his process for getting intimate environmental portraits that truly capture the essence of his subjects.
He gives down to earth tips for portraiture that can be applied to photographing anyone, not just movie stars but every day stars who deserve to have a great photograph taken of them, for their personal 15 minutes of fame.
With a career full of accomplishments he speaks from experience which behooves any photographer to pay attention to and take notes.
Brian Smith’s photography is featured in the beautiful book titled: “Art & Soul: Stars Unite to Celebrate and Support the Arts”.
“A generous portion of the proceeds from the book will go to advocate funding of the Arts and Arts Education through The Creative Coalition, a nonprofit, nonpartisan social and public advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community.” Source: http://briansmith.com )
