Ryan L. Smith
Photographer & graphic designer
Ryan L. Smith is a born-and-raised Louisvillian, a locally-published photographer, and the 2010 recipient of a gold Louie Award. He began focusing on nature and landscape photography after graduating from Louisville Technical Institute (now Sullivan College of Technology and Design) in 2009.
His love for graphic design led Ryan to the post-production side of photography, where he developed a keen eye for tone and color. This interest contributed to his technique behind the lens, and Ryan has cultivated a diverse skillset, including experience in fashion, product, portrait, and landscape photography.
In the future, Ryan aspires to have his prints displayed in a gallery. He hopes that his photos inspire other people to adventure, explore, and experience the world.
