Biography Sue Smith

Sue Smith is an award-winning, Australian photographer who is known for her shots of nature, industrial and structural subjects. Her use of light, angles and natural colour makes her work stunningly authentic, as Sue rejects the use of image-editing software.

Growing up in Germany, Sue was first introduced to a camera by her father at four years of age. He remained a primary influence in her style through his engineering and architectural background. His love of nature, water and ships were also passed on to Sue and is reflected in some of her most popular works. Sue continues to follow his philosophy to this day: “Keep focused! When you do it right in the first instance, it doesn’t need extensive photo editing. When you like it fancy, then create a digital abstract.”

Sue has spent time on both sides of the camera. In front of the camera, Sue’s work began in Frankfurt when she was signed by a modelling agency. While modelling, she was introduced to an ad agency working on a detergent commercial. After doing that spot, she won roles in films and at the theatre at Kleines Haus – Wiesbaden Staatstheater.

Behind the camera, Sue started her career as a freelance photojournalist. Her work primarily focused on interviews and photos of musicians before or after concerts. Her subjects have included Freddie Mercury, Peter Maffay, Udo Juergens and The Lords.

Sue later emigrated to Australia and continued her career – not only as a photographer, but also as the owner of Adelaide’s Sue Smith Photography (ASSP)® Gallery in Port Adelaide until her semi-retirement in 2018. She has been an exhibitor at the RSAYS Royal Australian Yacht Squadron Outer Harbor, Port Noarlunga Art Show, Rotary Port Adelaide Art Shows and also supervised the 2016 show which was comprised of 550 artworks in different styles and sizes. Sue was also a 2018 participant in the Rotary Flagstaff Hill and Campbelltown Art Shows, two venues at the SALA Festival, and the Royal Adelaide Show.

In early 2019, Sue was ranked 10th out of top 15 photographers (international) for her award-winning version of the Adelaide Mall Spheres (aka The Balls). Then in late July, she organised three solo shows, with more than 150 photography and painted works of art. More recently Sue’s piece, Harts Mill Packing Shed, was a finalist in the South Australian Government Essence of Heritage Photo/Video Competition in November 2019. Sue was named Artist of the Month at the Port Adelaide Enfield Council VIC showing 34 works, and went on to exhibit at The British Hotel in Port Adelaide, which ran from and from November 2019 to February 2020 including several changes of her work throughout the showing.

While Sue’s gallery featured her own work, it was also a way for her to showcase other local artists and encourage others to express their emotions through art. This became a passion and launched her into other roles such as curator, supervisor and artist manager. Sue has worked extensively with Aboriginal Australian artists and has a special bond with several indigenous tribes around the country.

Unfortunately, Sue has had a number of health issues throughout her life, but these have also shaped her art and her passion for connecting with people. Having survived leukaemia, skin cancer and a traffic accident, she is dedicated to supporting charities and organisations that support people in need. Sue donates proceeds from art sales, her work or her services to raise money for these worthy causes.

As a national and international award winner, Sue has received multiple accolades for her photography. The majority of these pieces are captured with the Olympus SP-550UZ and the Pentax-X5. While she originally worked with dSLR cameras, the impact of her shoulder injury from a work accident required her to change to digital equipment.

Sue is based in Adelaide, South Australia but travels throughout the country for assignments. She works with both private and commercial clients and will work outdoors as much as possible, regardless of weather, noise or smells. She is hired for a wide range of subjects such as mapping industrial decay, insurance documentation and claims, showing environmental and social problems, and large-format signs and prints.

Most of her works can be printed in a large format and on all materials for domestic and commercial displays and Perspex wallpapers, as well as in kitchens and laundries as splashback or wall panels.

 

Sue describes her photography as painting with a camera rather than a canvas. She says, “You plan your photo just like a painting before the first brushstroke. You plan the colours, the composition, the elements and what effects will show light and shadows. We photographers have imagination, but we also have to calculate the natural elements when working outdoors.”

 

Remark:

Sue curated & supervised the 2016 Rotary Port Adelaide Art Show installation whith more than 500 works in all shapes, weights and sizes.
