Russell Smith is an experienced photographer who has worked with many commercial clients in Fairbanks for the past two years. He is a military veteran and a graduate of University of Alaska Fairbanks. He specializes in industrial and real estate photography, having completed nearly 100 photo shoots throughout the state of Alaska. He also has extensive experience using aerial and drone photography, having been hired by local companies such as Alaska Commercial Properties, and Jack White Commercial.
I enjoy working closely with my clients to ensure that their vision is being translated to an image that is both eye-catching and dramatic. I like to tell my clients that they are using my eyes and equipment to show the world what they want them to see. With the addition of drones and aerial cameras, this allows their clients to view the city from a perspective that was only available to the birds. I love it when a client tells me, "Wow! I didn't know that part of town looked like that!"
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many real estate shoots, both commercial and residential. I love having customers who have spend a lifetime trying to get their home just right for their family and are just as excited about the sell of the home as I am about portraying it in a fashion that speaks for their hard work. I've even had residential home sellers ask me to send them some of their home's pictures because they want to take the memory of place with them to the future.
