Artists Statement
Randall Smith was born in San Diego, California but spent most of his youth in Santa Barbara, California. It was there that he embarked on a journey into photography at the age of 12. Randall's father got him started with an old twin lens reflex camera and he was soon  “adopted” by his neighbor who was a senior instructor at Brooks Institute of Photography. Creating images of nature has been his passion ever since.
Forty years later, he still has the images of Edward Weston, Ansel Adams and Elliot Porter etched in his memory. When his newly-found passion for painting overwhelmed him, it was a predicable and thrilling transition.
Randall's career in nature photography and a life spent wandering the outdoors has led him to some of the most beautiful places imaginable. It's the spirit of these places that he strives to share in his paintings.
