Hello, I am Chris L Smith, owner of csfotoimages based around Sarasota since 2012.


I was born in England during the "swinging sixties" to a war hero father and creative mother.

One of my earliest memories is of my father instructing me on how to hold a camera to take a photo of him and my mother at the seashore on vacation.  My father encouraged my ongoing interest in his hobby and I suppose that's how it all began.


Whilst working as a newspaper/magazine photographer in the 00's I became proficient with digital photography (Nikon) and advanced my computer editing experience. I was an early Adobe Photoshop user and now have many years of experience with a variety of Adobe products.


My love of travel has also inspired me to see the world while on a constant search for photographic opportunities. I have amassed a library of more than 50,000 stock images over 25+ years serving Getty and Alamy among other stock agencies worldwide.


I now specialize in:


1: BIG Photos: 10-20ft wide panorama style photos: - Starting at $1000


2: Photography of mainly US subjects for: Travel / Tourism, Editorial, News, Advertising,

    Websites, Real Estate, Industrial, Aviation, also Airport, Offices & Restaurants wall decor.


3: In 2016 I earned my FAA Commercial UAV drone Pilot's license. I operate the

    DJI Inspire 1 drone which is perfect for all professional applications.
