Native South Carolinian Tripp Smith grew up in Charleston, where he cultivated an appreciation for the beauty of light on the Lowcountry landscape. He earned a Bachelors degree in media arts studying photography at the University of South Carolina. Then, returning to Charleston, he served as an apprentice to 20+ photographers from around the country, some whom worked for Architectural Digest.
Within a few years, Tripp had worked with more than twenty photographers worldwide and had initiated a freelance career of his own. Through these experiences, he developed a passion for architectural photography. By 1997, Tripp began shooting full-time, crafting expressive and powerful images for architects, builders, interior designers, developers, residential and commercial property owners, and leading real estate companies.
Tripp produces dramatic architectural photographs that feature perspective control, color correction, and fine digital retouching suitable for publications, trade show exhibits, marketing collateral pieces, and electronic media. He aims to create memorable architectural photographs that stand independently as powerful images while reflecting the unique details of each assignment.
