Hattiesburg Photographer Nelson Smith Chats With

Nelson Smith, a 28-year-old Poplarville, Mississippi native founded his own photography business in 2009 after practicing photography for two years. In 2007 he started taking photos at local college nightclub parties with a Kodak Quicksnap camera and as word of mouth spread, Smith soon became Hattiesburg’s most well known urban photographer.

He attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and the University of Southern Mississippi, where he studied graphic design. Most of his work is in fashion, at weddings or your common portraits. He quit his day job to pursue photography full time and enjoys every minute of it.

A few weeks ago I had a photo shoot with Nelson and we had a blast. It took me a minute to get rid of my jitters, but once I did, he kept me laughing and comfortable. Check out the photos below!
