Justin Smith is a professional photographer based in Crace, Australian Capital Territory
Hello, I'm Justin Smith, an automotive photographer based in Canberra, ACT.
Growing up my father always had a passion for anything car related. To give you an idea, not only does he have a 20+ year career as a mechanic for the California Highway Patrol, he would wake up at 3AM if the F1 qualifying was on. This set the scene for my childhood. I was surrounded by car magazines and posters so there were always images of cars around. I never realised then, but these images were making a lasting impression in my mind.
In early 2012, I became interested in photography. I started learning as much as I could. I didn't know what I wanted to take photos of, I just liked how the camera worked. I began showing my work to people and received a great response; however, I just couldn't find a subject that I really enjoyed shooting. One day while I was just about to head home from breaking in a new lens, I wanted to get a few more shots in. I needed a subject so I started photographing my car. That was the moment I finally found a subject that interested me. I had never been so inspired and excited to explore the possibilities.
After that my life has been a whirlwind of learning the specifics about photographing cars and tailoring my skills to produce amazing photographs. My newly acquired photography knowledge has bridged a connection to car visuals that I've unknowingly stored since childhood. Now my own style has developed and my vision strikes through. I now look at cars entirely differently. I see their personality; I see their soul. I look into the details to see what makes them unique. And I love being able to capture those extraordinary elements to let the uniqueness of the car show itself.
If you would like photos of your car, ute, or motorcycle in print, on canvas, or as digital files, then you're in the right place. To make a booking or if you have any questions for me, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. View More...
