Hiya! Chris Smith here! I’m a life long photo enthusiast in the process of turning a love in to a profession. I was born and raised in Moosic, PA, and adventured throughout the area as if I were a regular Indiana Jones! I’m a sports nut along with a movie buff, so it’s hard to catch me without something to talk about in the sports world or a movie I may have seen most recently.
Growing up I idolized Steven Spielberg. My very first camera was a disposable Kodak — Jurassic Park’s cereal box marketing version, that is. I begged my parents to send in the UPC’s to get the camera and the day I got it I used up all of the film on random pictures. My dog’s wet nose, a flag; you name it, I probably took the most random picture of it. But I was hooked. I never thought back then that I could (or would) make something of it. It was fun. I enjoyed it. It was until my senior year in high school that I started to think about photography seriously. But when deciding on college I went the business route.
I graduated in 2011 from Full Sail University with a Bachelor’s degree in Entertainment Business and again in 2012 with a Master’s in Internet Marketing. I met so many interesting and creative people at Full Sail, most of which have become some of my very best friends and most of which have pushed me to pursue my passion in photography!
So what am I doing on my downtime? I’m a nerd. I read comics, play video games, and watch Doctor Who with my sonic screw driver close by! I’m also a golf nerd. I try to golf whenever possible and I also update what gear I’m using on Pinterest. I’ve been slowly converted to Nike Golf throughout the last two years. Sorry, Phil.
