ABOUT Raised on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California, Trevor Smith spent his youth on the edge of the Pacific Ocean surfing, sailing, and diving the island's rich kelp forests. His love of photography began early, documenting friends on surf caravans through out California and the Baja Peninsula. Later work and luck brought Trevor to Paris where he had the opportunity to point his lens on the city's thriving fashion world. Completing his studies at the University of Southern California, Trevor furthered his experience while working with SMASHBOX Studios and apprenticing with some of the industry's leading photographers. There he honed his technique in lighting, composition and portraiture. Trevor lives in New York City and continues to develop his creative craft. His style moves freely between lifestyle, beauty and fashion yet always reflects the sensibility of his coastal upbringing and West Coast roots.
