Ali Smith’s Compelling and Evocative Imagery

As an experienced portrait photographer who has shot over 300 book covers for major publishing houses internationally (as well as advertising and editorial), Ali Smith didn’t foresee wanting to become involved in video.

But on the set of the three covers Ali recently shot for Lauren DeStefano’s “Chemical Garden Trilogy” (Simon and Schuster), she decided to shoot some video with her SLR (Nikon D3S).  The results were so seductive and the editing so much fun that Ali proposed shooting trailers for the releases of these 3 books and it was accepted. The first one can be seen on Ali’s Altpick portfolio ( click on the “Fever Video” icon.)

“Shooting and editing these videos has been the perfect way to combine my decade of experience in the music world, playing and recording albums, with what I love most – making compelling and evocative images. It’s definitely something I hope to do a lot more of.”, comments Smith.
