Featured Photographer: Andy Smith

5 June 2014

I am a landscape and nature photographer based in Wauchope on the Mid North Coast of NSW. I am fortunate enough to live in an area with amazing coastlines, rainforests and mountains all within easy reach of anyone willing to get out and explore it. I think that most of us take the beauty that we are surrounded by for granted, but when you start to look at the world through photographers eyes you really start to appreciate just how beautiful our natural environment is. My aim is to capture the best our region has to offer in the best light possible and share it with the world.

I have always had a love of nature, and photography provides me with a creative outlet in which I can visualize with my camera the beauty which I see in my travels.

My passion for photography began about 2 years ago when I went on a motorbike trip and decided I needed a small camera to capture my memories, I was soon enjoying the photography as much as the motorbike riding, and knew I had found something special for me. From there things kind of ballooned, I started a Facebook page and a website to share my Images and haven’t looked back. Most of my spare time is now devoted to learning new techniques and improving my art.

I love to travel with my camera to new locations and trying to find new perspectives and interesting compositions, but really the Mid North Coast is a photographers Paradise.

All of my work is available to print and is displayed on Facebook, Google+, Flickr and my website, Some of my work can also be viewed at Sunset Gallery in Port Macquarie

Thanks for taking the time to read my story. I hope you enjoy my images
