Jeremy Smith specializes in on-location portrait and commercial photography, and prefers to shoot outdoors and balances flash with available light. He uses the subject and the environment as a guide, considers himself to be very good at adapting to his surroundings and subjects. As a photographer his goal is to create images that the viewing audience can easily connect with. To him, it is very important to depict realism while simultaneously allowing the viewer to go beyond mere reality, and prefers to find the best way to photograph each subject and get familiar with them on a personal level. This allows for a very nice balance between posing the subject and allowing them to be comfortable about presenting themselves to the viewer in a way they are comfortable.
