Tanya Smith has been an avid photographer since her teenage years. Her interest in visual communications led her to study Graphic Design at FIDM Los Angeles, where her entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic quickly led to a successful career as a commercial artist. Tanya has created artwork for international brands such as GUESS, Kodak, HP and Microsoft, but her favorite design challenge is working with new and local businesses to build a solid brand image.
During her freelance endeavors, Tanya rediscovered creative fulfillment in photography. Thanks to her many years’ experience in the publishing industry, her portraits and event photography have an editorial feel. Tanya’s photos and illustrations have appeared on the sets of various television shows as well as juried shows in Los Angeles, Utah and Washington State, where she currently resides.
When she’s not working late nights in her studio, you’ll find Tanya taking pictures with her camera, chasing after her three active children or daydreaming about a future trip to Rome. Luckily, her husband helps with the dishes; otherwise they would never get done…
