About Yuki Smith

Someone's About page is one of the first places I visit when I stumble upon anyone’s website. I like to know about the person, how the site might have started, what the story is there. I believe we all have a story worth telling, so here’s mine.

The long story short is that I am just a girl lucky enough to have been giving a camera by her parents at a young age. While not all that uncommon now it makes me happy that I am able to do something that I love every day and I’ll always cherish and be forever grateful for that.

When I was 5 I was given my first camera and I have not stopped taking photos since. Early on I loved taking photos of all types of animals. As time went on I started doing landscapes frequently on top of photographing animals. Shortly after I also added in architectural photography.  Over time I became aware of the power a camera possesses. When I was 15 I started taking photos of people and I fell in love. The emotion that can be captured while photographing people is hard to find in another type of photography. From capturing the happiness of a child on their birthday. To capturing the seriousness of a business owner for their new headshot. To the love of a family for each other in a family portrait. It is an irreplaceable thing.  I will continue to strive to the best of my abilities to preserve this world one photo at a time until I am no longer physically able.

So you may be asking yourself “What exactly does Yuki Smith photograph now?”. Now I do just about every type of photography: portraits, headshots, advertising, commercial print, corporate photography, fashion modeling portfolios, and events and of course I still do the things I used to like animal photography and landscapes. You name it and I photograph it.

Now the question is what can I, Yuki Smith, do for you?

 


Testimonials

I’ve worked with Yuki Twice now and have loved the photos each time. She really takes the time to sit down with you and discuss what you are looking for in your photos and what locations you think will make the costume shine. The angles are always good and the editing is very tasteful. I would highly recommend working with her in the future.

I could say many things about Yuki but when it comes down to it she just knows her stuff. I couldn’t ask for a more competent photographer to shoot our company events.
— Luke Jackson
I have worked with Yuki on several projects now and she is always a pleasure to work with. She really knows her stuff and is great at handling unpredictable events.
— Sam Johnson
When I booked Yuki I was very nervous because I am super self-conscious about how I look in photos but she really took her time and made me feel at ease during the shoot. Even better I loved the photos I got back from it. I look great in them.
