CORPUS CHRISTI CAMERA’S REBEL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2017
In October 2017, local camera store Corpus Christi Camera challenged the Coastal Bend photographic community to a live, 3-day photo contest using only models of the Canon Rebel camera as their tools. The Rebel is one of the world’s most beloved entry-level DSLR cameras and widely used by beginner photographers to learn the art. The purpose of this annual competition was to bring of our passionate aspiring photographers into the spotlight.
We are proud to introduce our winner Landon Smith, a Fort Worth native and student at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. Taught photography by his grandfather at an early age, Smith bought his first camera at age 14, still shoots with it today, and collects antique cameras.
Smith focuses his work on black-and-white images and one-point perspective to provide unique looks into architecture and nature.
