Our Member of the week is : Patrick Smith of Patrick Smith Photos.  Patrick is an amazing photojournalist from Maryland.
I noticed each of his photos tells an interesting story and his lighting is exceptional. I asked him how long he had been a photographer. He said, ” I”ve been shooting pictures since sometime in high school. I did a lotof video work in my late years of high school, which developed into a love of photojournalism in college.”
I was curious to know what his favorite subject to photograph was. He replied, ” I am a versatile photojournalist, so I shoot a range of assignments from professional sports to news events. It”s difficult to say what I like the most since I dgfev online casino enjoy it all. I love to deliver the compelling images of newsworthy and sporting events to those around the world. I also enjoy wandering in foreign cities and countries shooting feature pictures.”
Patrick says he gets his inspiration from other photojournalists and friends — this list is long.  He would also want to casino thank online casino photojournalists and editors, young and old, online casino canada for continually pushing him by producing their own amazing works.
I asked him if he could give himself a piece of advice when he was first starting out – what would it be? He replied, ” That”s a difficult question. As a photojournalist, I dgfev online casino wish I would havedone some more internships and got to meet and learn from more talented photographers. But I don”t think I would change anything.

So we want to know Patrick — what”s in your camera bag?   He said, ” Too much to carry, that”s for sure! I”m well versed in both Canon and  Nikon systems, but grew up on Nikon. I shoot with Nikon D3S and D700 camera bodies. I also have a full gamut of lenses ranging from a 35mm f/2 to a 400mm f/2.8. I am also a huge ThinkTank Photo fan. I have a bunch of their rolling bags and accessories, including the ThinkTank  International 2.0 and their waist belt and pouches.”
Thanks Patrick for being an inspiration and sharing your work.
