Sheryl’s passion for capturing special moments on film began at a tender age, shooting black and white pictures with her first blue, plastic, box-shaped camera. She has always enjoyed photographing people and animals, as well as urban and landscape settings. Her love for this medium isn’t surprising and was passed onto me by her late father, Dr. Allan Smith, who was an award-winning photographer. Sheryl has taken photographs in Vancouver as well as on her travels, and family and friends alike have been subjects of many moments in her camera's eye.
Sheryl’s photographs have been featured at Juried exhibits including The Sidney and Gertude Zack Gallery, The Harmony Arts Festival, The Silk Purse Gallery, The Shadbolt Centre, The Deer Lake Gallery and the Art Exhibit at Sea Vancouver. Patterns of Life was also on display at both The Peretz Centre and at The Metro Theatre. Her photographs and recently published book are also enjoyed in many private collections throughout North America.
In addition to her photography, Sheryl has been a singer and performer all of her life. She has been seen on stage in her one-woman shows, various musical theatre productions, in her own vocal trio and has also appeared on television and film. For the past 12 years, Sheryl has worked as a Sign Language Interpreter, working at the BC School for the Deaf, following a variety of careers such as dental receptionist, salesperson and travel agent.
“Inukshuk…in the Image” photo was selected by the Province’s Travelling Roadshow. Sheryl
and her photographs have been featured in publications including The Vancouver Sun, Province, West Ender, The Courier, Independent Weekly, North Shore News and North Shore Outlook and on television and radio shows including Urban Rush, CBC TV, CBC Radio-Canada (French TV) and appeared as Photo of the Day on both CBC and Global TV stations.
The magic of photographs is that they capture a moment in time.
