Chris & Cami Lecture at the Charleston Center for Photography

Second Monday Lecture Series | September 12 | 7 p.m.|
Chris Smith

On Monday, September 12, at 7 pm, the Charleston Center for Photography will welcome Chris Smith, of Chris and Cami Photography, as he shares his pictures from his latest trip to Tanzania. Born to missionary parents in Zaire, Africa, Chris developed a passion for photography in high-school.  By 10th grade, he was winning awards.  He continued to study the craft in college, receiving his photography degree from the New York Institute of Photography.

Chris & Cami moved to Charleston and now run a successful studio in this historic seaside town.  They have photographed politicians like former president George Bush and Senator John Kerry, celebrities like the B-52s and Steve Harvey, Gold Medalists like Pete Sampras and Misty May-Treanor, Superstars like Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams, and business leaders like the CEO of GE and the president of Crayon.  Their work has been featured in publications like Family Circle Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Charleston Magazine, and Tennis Magazine. Chris & Cami love to travel and have photographed destination weddings, wildlife, and travel photos around the globe in places like South America, The Caribbean, Europe, Australia, and Africa.  Not only is Chris a passionate photographer, but he imbues that passion to attendees of his Workshops and Private Mentor Sessions.  His popular Lightbending 411 Workshops in destinations like Denver, Greenville, and Maine are routinely sold out.  And his Private Mentor Sessions, designed for photographers looking to take their artistry to the next level, have been enjoyed by professionals from as far away as Ohio.  Chris & Cami also team up to lead Global Photo Adventures to exotic locations like St. Thomas, Costa Rica, Romania, and Tanzania.
