Photographer of the Week - 7 April 2022 - Andrew Smith

07 April 2022

Posted by Picfair


Andrew Smith is an American teacher and photographer living in Kyoto, Japan. Within his store, you'll find a gorgeous array of work focusing on Japan's incredible landscapes and distinctive architecture, giving you a glimpse of what it's like to live in such a richly beautiful area. 

Favourite photographer:

My favorite photographer is my dad, Richard A. Smith, who taught me from an early age how to hold a camera, compose shots, and develop photos.  He taught me how to develop black and white photos in a makeshift darkroom in our home.  Much of his work consists of composite images from photos he's taken during one of his many travel adventures.  Not only did he introduce me to photography, but he's always inspired me to get out, talk to people, and to see beyond the surface of things.  I admire his eye for detail, texture, and color...things that are not always my strongest points. 

Best tip for other photographers:

I'd say don't be shy to talk to strangers and and ask to take their photos, if that's something you'd like to do.  Nine times out of ten the person accepts and is happy to have their photo taken.  I've made many interesting connections that I wouldn't have otherwise, by walking around the streets of Kyoto and talking to people; which is to say that I think photography can be an exciting tool for interacting with both people and nature in unexpected ways if you're willing to step outside of your normal comfort zone.

My favourite photograph:

"Sunrise on Winter Fuji"  I lived and worked in the Fuji Area for a number of years, so I am always exploring new ways of seeing the mountain.  Capturing this image took a bit of effort to get to the location in time for sunrise, as it had been snowing heavily for the previous week.  I saw that the forecast was to be clear and knew that the fresh snow on Fuji would be stunning in the morning light.  What I hadn't expected is that there would be a clear crescent moon adorning the sky at the same time, and while all of the other photographers lined up with their tripods to get their close-ups of Mt. Fuji, I don't think any of them noticed the moon, which for me, makes this photo much more interesting and memorable.  Also, I took this photo with my trusty Nikon D7500, an APS-C camera, and its kit lens, without a tripod.  It reminds me that to get great photos I don't need the most expensive gear; I just need to get out!
