Hi, I am Smeeta.
I am a lifestyle photographer that shoots editorial and commercial assignment work. Self assigned personal projects are also part of my routine. I am based in Berkeley, CA.
I am a people person who realized in last few years that I'm also a dog person at heart. Kids and teens are particularly engaging to me...I love watching them navigate the world with beautiful awkwardness. I chose to embrace the process of discovery in whatever situation is unfolding in my life. People and relationships drive me...I want to know more.
Through my work, I try to create imagery that is filled with emotion and energy. Magnetic energy that is created between subject, camera and ultimately the viewer. I want the viewer to feel.
In addition to my photography work, I am also the founder and executive director of KidsRise, a nonprofit dedicating to engaging and empowering the next generation of voters.
