About Me


My name is A.J. Smith. I am interested in pursuing high-end concepts and producing fine art, publication-quality fashion-editorial images (think Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Real Simple, NOT Maxim or similar style publications). My images have been published in books, magazines, brochures, displays and exhibits, and websites.

Please see a lot more of my work on my Facebook page (linked above).

I will only do TF shoots with well-established, experienced, and/or high-profile models and subjects, or if I believe you are an excellent model for a specific project. I am particularly interested in working with performing artists--dancers, musicians, actors.

I do NOT shoot nudes, implied nudes, lingerie, bikini, erotic, or fetish. I have no problem with these genres, but they're just not my thing as a photographer. I will only work with models who are clearly committed to establishing and maintaining a professional brand image focused on high-end fashion-editorial and performing arts, not other genres.

***IMPORTANT: Models under 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. I will ask for photo identification to confirm your age.

NOTE: I sometimes work with my wife, Dawn Renee, who is an excellent photographer (www.dawnreneesmith.com). Be sure to check out her website.

WHAT I EXPECT FROM MODELS: When we're setting up the details of our shoot, please communicate with me in a timely and professional manner. Ask questions. Share your ideas. Please show up at our agreed location at our agreed time. Arrive prepared. Behave professionally. Escorts (who will not interfere or distract) are absolutely welcome (they can even be helpful). Comply with our agreed-to terms regarding permissible use of images. If you cannot meet these expectations, please do not ask or agree to work with me.

What models can expect from me: I will show up on time at our agreed location. I will behave professionally at all times. I will provide high-end professional quality digital images in a very timely manner.

A word about FRIENDS and TAGS: I don't see MM as a social networking site, but as a professional networking site. As such, I don't see much value in adding a bunch of friends who aren’t in the Pittsburgh region and who aren’t doing work aligned with what I am doing; so, please don't be offended if I don't add you as a friend. I think the best way to communicate about possible photo shoots or other photography-related issues is through the message system (not tags).


Any model I have listed as a Top 12 friend is someone I have worked with, consider reliable and professional--someone I would recommend to other photographers.

Models, I encourage you to contact any model I have worked with to get honest feedback on his or her experience working with me.
