Ryan L. Smith
-Photographer & designer
Imagine a time where you felt calm and thought to yourself, “I wish I could remember this moment, forever.” Luckily, Ryan has made those moments a life long memory through his photography and ability to see tones and different colors in a matter of seconds. If you remember nothing from him, remember this: Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost. Do what you love, cause before you know it. Life will pass you by and you’ll be wishing you had done something better early on.
Ryan L. Smith, a born and raised Louisvillian, a 2010 Louis Award winning, and locally published photographer, doesn’t see what an image is, but what it can be. As a child, his grandpa gifted him with a film camera, which unbeknownst to him, would lead to a lifetime dedicated to the arts.
Anyone that shares the love for differentiation, has experienced self-doubt and self-realization. Like most artists, Ryan locked away his talents thinking the worst, until the world’s master key, love, unlocked that passion and released a spark. Which lead to his mastering of post production aspects of photography and helped give him the confidence needed to dare to pursue a path only the brave take.
