A native of Corpus Christi, Victoria Smith grew up with a deep love of the Texas Gulf Coast and the state's scenic rivers. That heritage often draws her to the water, and she often incorporates bodies of water into her eloquent landscape photography. Her still-life and floral images capture the treasured elegance of heirlooms and gifts, reflecting a similar fidelity and celebration of light. With the same attention to detail, Victoria crafts portraits that have a timeless quality that makes them precious objects.
Victoria's photographs are included in the collections of the Harry Ransom Center of The University of Texas at Austin, the Witliff Gallery at Texas State University, the Mildred Huie Museum on St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, Austin’s Art in Public Places, and many private collections. Victoria’s photographs have been published in a variety of journals including the New Mexico Photographer’s Magazine and the Borderlands-Texas Poetry Review, as well as a series of note cards issued by C. R. Gibson and the Borealis Press. In addition to her creative work, Victoria is a member of the Board of Directors of the Texas Photographic Society.
Victoria lives in Austin and freelances for clients such as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. She recently completed a broad travel survey of France, photographing for a new series of French textbooks.
Victoria is available for freelance work covering the broad range of her interests and photographic subjects. For information on purchasing photographs on this site or from her broader portfolios, please feel free to contact her at 512-659-2404 or click to email.
