Stephen Smith was born in Chelsea, London in 1953 and completed his education at Buckinghamshire College situated in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom.
His journey into photography was an unconventional one, after spending most of his working life in design and construction delivering major projects for clients in the music, media, advertising and medical industries, the decision was made to pursue his passion….photography.
So in 2008 at the beginning of the global recession he decided to reorganise his life so that he could fully commit to long term projects.
Street Photography is his passion, his obsession; it is his love for photography. Photography for him is when you capture that moment in time which instantly becomes history. A street scene, people, places, events captured, frozen for eternity never to be repeated.
