Been there done that, the challenges of figuring out the photographic puzzle
Kevin is a free-lance visual artist specializing in fine art, environmental portraiture, architectural, and artwork photography. UAA photography professor Sam Kimura first encouraged his love for photography in 1983. After graduating from UAA in 1986 with a degree in Advertising and Public relations he moved overseas to Germany where he spent 10 years playing semi-pro basketball and also worked as an advertising executive. Returning each summer during the off season to photograph the wilds of Alaska, Smith returned for good in 1996. After he moved back he spent the next 5 years shooting for Chris Arend; one of the most respected names in Alaskan photography, before moving out on his own in 2002. He has won numerous local awards for his fine art photography and his work has been widely published not only in Alaska but throughout the US and world wide.
Smith specializes in fine photographic art installations featuring Alaskan themes. So far he has done installations in 12 Alaskan village schools; Akiak, Akiachak, Tuluksak, Noatak, Deering, Shungnak, Kalskag, Kobuk, Ruby, Mountain Village, Anaktuvuk Pass, and Nulato, as well as murals for fire stations # 3 and # 4 in Anchorage, the Machentanz Elementary School in Palmer, the Joe Redington Sr. Jr/Sr High School, Dena’ina Elementary School and the Mat-Su Career and Technical Center High School in Wasilla, Ryan Middle School in Fairbanks, the Harry J.
