Photography by Rich Smith - Yorkshire Wedding & Outdoor Photographer | About

My first real study into the art of photography was studying for my A Level in Photography. Here I learnt invaluable knowledge in using a 35mm film SLR, learning traditional techniques, darkroom experience and the art of ‘learning to see’.
 

It was a few years later thanks to the generosity of my parents I received my first digital SLR – a Nikon D60. With this I began taking images of local sport and landmarks and soon I was asked if I would like to photograph my first wedding. Nervously, I accepted a new passion was born.
With an expanding portfolio and exposure my wedding schedule became busier with 2015 my busiest year to date.

Photography isn't my full time occupation. Well, not yet anyway. I continue my full time job as a CAD draughtsman to support my young family. I enjoy family time, the great outdoors and walking our dog, Pippa.  I very rarely leave my camera at home.


Photographing my own pet, Pippa gained national recognition when I won the Go Outdoors Get Britain Outdoors photography competition. 


What’s ahead for me, who knows.. Maybe a full time photography career but In the mean time I’m going to enjoy what I’m doing now. Capturing personalities, memories and encapsulating scenery.
