About Yuki Smith
I’m excited to tell you my story, but the truth is that I feel lucky to have picked up a camera. 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 it makes me happy that I can do something that I love every day and I’ll always cherish and be grateful for the opportunities that I have had along the way and continue to have.
It all started when I was 5, I was given my first camera by my parents, and I have not stopped taking photos since. Early on I loved taking pictures of landscapes. As time went on, I started to photograph animals frequently. 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 I capture 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 a valuable 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.
Like I said earlier, I'm genuinely grateful for everything that has come my way. The best part is that I love what I do and none of it seems like work to me. I believe that everything I've worked to accomplish stems from this one thing:
The beauty I have seen looking through my viewfinder.
So there you have it, my life’s work. You will find me with a camera in my hands until the day I die.
