Ralph Smith has worked – in various roles – in the commercial advertising industry for thirty years, demonstrating a keen passion for all creative aspects of food presentation. His passion extends beyond the realm of photography and includes growing vegetables, cooking delicious meals, and of course eating! All of these passions mingle to inspire the creative processes that make Ralph Smith Studios different.
Ralph graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in Commercial Art, and worked as a designer and Illustrator for three years prior to becoming a photographer. Both his educational and professional experiences facilitate a more complete understanding of the creative process needed to successfully demonstrate advertising flexibility.
On a personal note, his wife Barbara, like Ralph, is a successful creative who has written over thirty historical romance genre novels. One could say a creative spark joins this family in a singular adventure – to express oneself through different mediums, to different audiences.
