About June Smith
June Smith has been taking pictures for many years and is self taught. Photography is one of her favorite pastimes, along with traveling. In 1980's she purchased her first 35 mm camera; and throughout the years she had several point and shoots, however, in 2016 she purchased her first professional DSLR camera and is in love with it. She clicks away aimlessly, feeling the possibilities are endless. Currently she is experimenting with enhancing or manipulating her images to produce a more artistic presentation.
She currently does not have a niche for she is still exploring the world of photography. Her eye is attracted to colorful displays and the tiniest detail of a subject in nature. She also enjoys celebrations with family, friends and photographing her pets. She loves the exploration of photography so much, she's joined several camera clubs and leads a “Photo Safari” Meet-Up Group so she can feed her addiction of plentiful clicking opportunities.
June's goal is to compete, build her portfolio, sell images, as well, as plan and organize photo opportunity travel for anyone who loves to explore. If you are interested in hiring her for a project, a session, or interested in any of her images presented on this website, contact June Smith Photography today.
