For Hire!

My name is Desi Smith, I've been taking photos for 40 years, and have been a working professional for 30 years. In 1978, I started out shooting local bands,weddings and portraits. In 1990 I felt the need to do something a little more exciting, like covering local news as a freelance photographer for different papers and the Gloucester Daily Times, were I eventually became a staff photographer. As a photojournalist I've had the privilege to meet and photograph all types of people that included Artist, Musicians, Politicians, Celebrities, Actors,Professional Athletes and members of my local Police and Fire. I still enjoy covering local news, sports, and special events, that I am available for hire. Over the years my photos have been published in several magazines and news prints, and have won several awards by the New England Associated Press News Executives Association and the New England Better News Papers, for my work in photojournalism. 

I'm still covering breaking news and events. But looking to be hired for magazine work, that would include, studio and environmental portraiture, lifestyle, food, entertainment, fashion and modeling, all of which I need more of  to build my portfolio to show what I can do.  If you need any of these services please call or email me at
