Something Personal: The Big Picture with Matthew Jordan Smith

There are moments in our lives that bring everything else into perspective. Losing someone we love does that like nothing else.

In this poignant talk from the TPM 2022 Conference Main Stage, Matthew Jordan Smith celebrates the photographer’s calling in life by bringing its importance sharply into focus. Matthew talks about what he loves and values about his career as a celebrity photographer, and he also tells personal stories about documenting the last 13 years of Aretha Franklin’s life and a lifetime of documenting his parents and family. Having lost his father a month ago to the day from this talk, Matthew shares how that experience impressed on him the importance of not just taking beautiful photographs, but also telling the stories of our life, which become ever more precious with the passing of time.

You can find Matthew Jordan Smith’s Ultimate Lighting Course in The Portrait Masters Store.
