Andy Smith Photography provides Fine Art Nature Photography of birds, wildlife, flowers, and scenery available as prints or framed or matted only and as note cards. His photography provides a small window into the vast array of the beauty of our universe, an opportunity to observe and consider, to contemplate and learn from the things and creatures that surround us, a moment of spiritual connection to one another and to that being observed. All images are museum quality, printed with pigment based ink on matte surface fine art paper with an estimated fade-resistant life of 70-100 years. Images are matted with acid-free mat board and backed with acid-free foam board. Selected images are printed on canvas. B Corporations are at the center of a movement for a fundamental change in business that is fully in keeping with the mission of Andy Smith Photography to help people live and work in a way that builds local communities that are in touch with their natural environment. Andy Smith Photography seeks to make and distribute photographic images portraying the art of nature for spaces where people can appreciate its beauty, understand their ecological connections, and act in ways to restore and protect our home, the earth.
