My name is Dylan Smith, I have been making films and taking photos professionally for others for 5 years now.
My focus in my films and photos is telling a story story through showcasing personality through genuine passion and emotion captured through my lens.
I started making videos when I was nine years old in my bedroom, always trying new things I saw from making stop motion animations with my Legos, to short films with my Grandma to vlogs with my friends.
July, 2021 - Present, I'm proud to say, I've now gone full time with filmmaking & photography. Working with some amazing businesses and individuals from all over the country. Both local and large companies, sticking to my roots of showcasing the passion these people have for what they do big and small. I know have a team I call upon when help is needed.
The question is, how can I help you? Send me a message, and let's see what I can do for you or your business.
In 2021, To finish off my photojournalism associates degree, I did two 8 week 320-hour internships. One was with
All-Pro Media, a media company that does corporate video and commercial photography. There I got to see and help with numerous larger budget videos. There I got to see practical uses of interviews, Broll, and live events. I continue to do Freelance jobs with them.
Lighthouse Visuals, a visuals company that does real estate photography, video, and virtual tours for properties all around the state of North Carolina. There I learned to work on a deadline every day, and I was given multiple houses a day to do and have turned in each night. There I learned a lot about time management and communicating better with people.
In 2019 and 2021, I went to Photography School at Randolph Community College, learning how to print prints out of my digital images, learning composition, pacing in video and lighting, and working on a deadline with photojournalism work. In July of 2021 I received an Associates Degree in Photographic Technologies Photojournalism.
