Asked what he would say to photographers who are just starting out in the business, Smith replies:

"Never choose to be a photographer for the money or for the glamour or for the romance of it all. I think it may have all of those things but that is not the reason why you choose to be a photographer. You choose to be a photographer because there is something about this translation of feeling onto film that drives you to really want to do this, and it's a really wonderful gift for you to do that. All the other stuff is sort of peripheral to it and if you seek that out, you're going to lose it. If you seek out just to do really good work, to be the best you possibly can, maybe that will come to you."
