Michael Penn Smith

I've been a “Vision Worker” for most of my life, first in still photography and for over 3 decades in motion photography, shooting film and video, and operating many tools of movement, especially the Stanton Triangle Jib. As a Jib owner-operator, I'm experienced with live concerts, music videos, reality shows, business theater, sports, doc, features and episodic tv.

Now I’m enjoying returning to still photography for livelihood, and also exploring the power of photography for creative expression and for sharing human experience. When shooting I’m aiming to unveil that extraordinary reality, that glimmers beneath the ordinary.

To see a world in a grain of sand

And a heaven in a wild flower

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand

And eternity in an hour

--William Blake
