My name is Abbi Smith and I'm a freelance photographer, specializing in natural light.
I've been on an extended hiatus for the past few months and I've just began shooting again. I'm in the process of updating my portfolio. If you'd like to join in on that process, let me know.
**Also! I'm trying to work on getting some photos together for wardrobe design. I do a lot of shopping at Goodwill and other thrift stores. If you are handy with bargain shopping, drop me a line and we may be able to bounce some ideas off each other. (I hate going shopping alone)
-I'm very rough around the edges, I like to cuss and have fun. I'm not rated PG by any means.
-I'm fond of texture, and color, and decay.
-I like to meet my models first. There is nothing worse than that first awkward picture. I don't want to have to waste half an hour getting to know each other while we're trying to shoot.
-On most shoots, I bring along my fiancee. He's more or less my partner in crime. My muse. He's there for posing, lighting, ideas, and conversation. Trust me, we aren't creepers. (You always have the option of meeting him when you meet me.)
-I've heard I'm fun to work with, but I don't believe to many rumors. Everyone I work with has a blast with me.
-I've been told I'm quite blunt. Honesty is the best policy.
**-I'm just a broke girl, doing my thing. It's my art just as much as it is yours. I can't pay you, but if you're traveling- I can give you a place to stay while you're here. Obviously I'm a little selective with it, but I do like having my models close. I love getting to know people on a personal level.**
-If you can act like a civil human being and hold an intelligent conversation with me, we're going to work together wonderfully.
-Another thing! I'm picky with who I work with. Like I said, it's my art just as much as it is yours. You can't just throw money at me and expect amazing pictures. It's kind of an inspiration thing. Don't take any offense to me saying no, that you're style just isn't what I'm looking for right now.
