  • Alec Smart is a professional photographer based in Sydney, New South Wales

    Photojournalist, Features Writer, Editor. I have wide-ranging experience in communications & media, including documentary photography, features writing, page design, videography and marketing, through years of supplying and collating images & articles to newspapers, magazines, agencies, websites.

    I work as a photojournalist + features writer in Sydney for Neighbourhood Media + Sydney Sentinel, and undertake live concert photography & reviews for Australian music websites, primarily Gongscene, plus I take occasional publicity images for other clients.

    In 2016 I designed and published an eBook, Womad: A Photographic Odyssey, featuring images from 21 Womad music festivals I attended around the world, a ten-year project.
    It is available online to download free at Lulu.com - http://www.lulu.com/shop/alec-smart/womad-a-photographic-odyssey/ebook/product-22792999.html
    A second eBook of concert photos is in production.

    I spent 22 years in southern England, where I worked as a journalist, photographer, features editor and features writer for news agencies, regional newspapers, county life & music magazines and a city broadsheet.

    I also worked as a chef for five years, whilst studying Editorial Photography at Brighton University and freelancing as a photojournalist.

    I am a quick learner, highly adaptable, and a talented improviser.

    I'm writing a science-fiction spy novel about a dystopian religious society in a post-global-warming world, set in Sydney.
    The plot could be described as Lord Of The Flies meets 1984, two books that had a major influence on my early reading. View More...
