Bruce Smith Fashion Photographer.

As a fashion photographer I have spent my whole working life aspiring to work in Paris.  My dream came true nearly 3 years when I first moved to Paris, France.

I love to create images of couture fashion designers gowns, bridal wear designers dresses, lingerie and swim wear, high fashion brands, fine art nudes, actors head-shots and a mixed genre of portraiture of people from a simple head shot portrait to highly styled fine art portraits or sexy boudoir images that really connect the subject with the viewer.

Bruce’s attention to detail, energy and enthusiasm are second to none and the project was a great success from initial casting through to delivery of the final digital images. A true pro.
