We’ve worked with Vicki Smith on a number of different projects. Like many artists, she likes her work to speak for itself rather than focusing on her own image. Our approach was to take photographs and video in her studio where she felt most comfortable. We made sure the camera wasn’t obtrusive nor did we stage photos. This helped capture natural moments where she was feeling confident, artistic, and engaged in her work. The magic of photography happens in split-second when you don’t realize you are being photographed.
