Matthew Smith

I am a lifestyle photographer living and working in Los Angeles, California. Originally hailing from Iowa, I have lived & worked in Honolulu, Chicago, Arkansas, and have finally landed in Los Angeles.

I am devoted to visual excellence, producing uplifting work, and pursuing beauty. With a passionate eye for capturing the spirit of people, I seek the unique human moments that give life to photographs. Compelling subjects and collaborating with others has kept my work fresh and constantly maturing. 

I love well-designed things, well-prepared food, and well-told stories. I have had the opportunity to work for a diverse set of clientele, travel to beautiful places, and (my favorite) met amazing people.


Partial list of clients and brands who've used my work: Men's Journal, Bota Box Wine, Yahoo! Travel, Garmin, Baptist Health, Allrecipes Magazine, and Arkansas Blue Cross And Blue Shield.
