About j.a.smith

I am a Los Angeles native who is amazed at the lessons learned looking through a camera lens.

I think there is beauty in everything our senses can perceive. My goal is to visually translate this beauty through my work.

I was bitten by the photography bug when I purchased my first digital camera some 14 years ago: a 2.1 megapixel Sony Cybershot. It died on the tail end of a vacation to Thailand some years back, but I still keep it as a reminder of my humble beginnings in photography.

I am self taught and based in Los Angeles, CA which I consider one of the best canvases in the world.
