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, and has worked as a professional product photographer for Rue La La since 2010.
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.
