Photography Profile: Louise Smit

At the blossoming age of only eighteen, Louise Smit has already started becoming an inspiration within the realm of photography. Luckily for me, I had the very privilege to interview this lovely lady, so let's see what she had to say.

How did photography all begin for you?
It began when I found my Dad's old box of 35mm cameras at the age of 12. My love for photography runs in my blood. At one stage I was rarely seen without a camera slung around my neck. From there I'm pretty much self-taught.

Where are you based?
In Brisbane.

Do you have a specific style to your photography? 
At this stage I'm still growing so I haven't limited myself to a particular style. Light plays a big part in my images though, I love to play with it.

What inspires you?
Beautiful people and places. Anything and everything. I'm really attracted to raw, simplistic beauty in photographs. Femininity and minimalism are key to my inspiration.

Any projects you're working on now? Any future goals?
I'm currently planning a few shoots and will be taking some photos for a boutique in the next week or so. I'm also in the process of making my website. I have many goals and the list grows everyday, right now my goals would be focusing on my business and to be constantly building my portfolio.

What have you learned from your journey as a photographer?
My journey has only just begun, but so far I've learnt that it's a tough industry, and 'people skills' are very important along with forming contacts. You can't sit around waiting for projects to magically appear either.

Where can readers find more of your work?
When I update my work it goes straight to my blog: http://louise-smit.blogspot.com/

Four eyes.

The weather today was a little moody if you ask me; cold and windy one minute, boiling hot the next. It was the first day back to school for me, and I'm ecstatic that it's my last ever term before graduation.  I bought a few bits and bobs after school, so I may take photos of them in the near future, but I wanted to show you all my new reading glasses! Quite frankly, I'm not the biggest fan of them and I like my old ones better, but y'know, que sera. These ones are a lot stronger so it'll take me a little while to get used to wearing them (because I'm so prone to getting headaches even when wearing my old glasses), but hey, at least I'm not as blind now.

Perfected junkyard

Thrifted sweater, Valleygirl skirt, Novo shoes, Kmart bag, Sportsgirl necklace and ring.

My day was quite a lazy one; I mainly just focused on relaxing and soaking up some warm spring air. Can I just express to you all quickly as to just how much I love this skirt right now? It fits me like a glove and it adds  such an effortless texture to any boring outfit - not to mention the colour is divine. Today's the last day of my school holidays, which is rather depressing. Although I must admit, I'm going to make the most of my very last term in high school because I know I'll regret it if I don't. So today I took photos of weeds instead of pretty spring flowers, purely because I wanted to find beauty out of such a bland thing - just like school.

Sunset spottin'.

I have a confession to make. I, Nicci, am a sunset-a-holic. Seriously though, I've come to the conclusion that they're the most beautiful things to witness. I don't think there's a single thing that I find more stunning than the sheer beauty of a sunset. And I absolutely love the effect that a sunset can give when taking a photo; I love how there's a gradient of colours intricately woven throughout it, and how you don't even need to edit the photo, because it's perfect the way it is. 




I don't mean to brag or anything, but having about six beaches within close proximity to my town is quite a handy thing to have when the heat rises. Although Elliott Head's beach isn't my absolute favourite, but it's still very high up on the list and it gets extra brownie points for not being busy like a few of the others. I like relaxing when I go to the beach, and if there's too many people around, sometimes I'd just rather go elsewhere; this place definitely does me justice though.
