Rodney Smith

New York Photographer Rodney Smith sure is good at what he does. Take a look for yourself

He also has a new book out now, called, "The End"


New York City-based photographer Rodney Smith is among the few photographers who continue to publish, exhibit, lecture, and teach while also keeping up on commercial assignment schedules. His commercial clients include: American Express, I.B.M., H.J Heinz, Merrill Lynch, the New York Stock Exchange, B.M.W., Starbucks Coffee, and House Beautiful Magazine, MCI Worldcom, VISA, and The New York City Ballet. In addition to this corporate and advertising work, his fashion include Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Ralph Lauren, Ellen Tracy, The New York Times Magazine and W Magazine, amongst others…

In contrast to the pseudo “realism” of a lot of fashion and advertising photography, Smith creates images that foster a sense of serenity and well-being. “My interest is not in what is new or fashionable, but rather what endures, and is graceful, stylish and beautiful,” Smith says.
