My name is Shannon Smith. I live and work in Moncton, New Brunswick on Canada’s East Coast with my wife and two boys.
I like to make interesting images of interesting people. Everyone is interesting.
I am a father, husband, friend, photographer, artist, comedian, storyteller, nonconformist, evil genius, contrarian and generally swell guy.
What I find interesting and what you find interesting might not be the same. That's OK.
I take loads of photos of my own family as thay are often the most readily available models.
I studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design many moons ago. I switched to digital in 2006.
I never cease to be amazed at the sheer volume of incredible talent here on 500px. I enjoy finding new streams to follow and have many contacts I have been following for years.
If you would like more information about acquiring my services or my art for personal or commercial use, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
One should as a rule respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways.
- Bertrand Russell
I will not serve that in which I no longer believe whether it call itself my home, my fatherland or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use, silence, exile, and cunning.
- James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Literature encourages tolerance — bigots and fanatics seldom have any use for the arts, because they're so preoccupied with their beliefs and actions that they can't see them also as possibilities.

Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.
Jake: Hit it.
