I took this picture from inside the Jeep in Biloxi, MS on Beach Boulevard. I love old trees. They tell us stories of the life they have lived. When I photograph trees I usually go to the trunk and place my hand on the tree, feeling the bark. Due to the weather, this one I did not. This tree survived big storms that took out many trees. It survived Katrina and Camille and more by just blowing along with whichever way the wind was blowing, not fighting it.

Paul Smith

Paul Smith bought his first camera in 1978 at the local Service Merchandise and has been in love with photography since. "It's not about photography, it's about capturing your vision, showing others the world through your eyes. A person's photography style is ever-changing based on what they see, feel and hear at a given point in time."

 

Smith, a Clinton, MS native now residing in Brandon, MS, captures potent images as he travels through Mississippi and the South. His first photography book, "The Color of Mississippi" (Nautilus Publishing, 2012) captured the beauty of our breathtaking state. His second book is scheduled for release in 2023, "Sweet Seasons", combines his love of baking southern desserts with photography.

 

"I was just a "home event" photographer until 2009 when my wife asked me to take a photograph of a yellow tulip she admired at Jackson's well-manicured Highland Village in 2009. Capturing the beauty of that small delicate flower on an overcast day inspired me to pursue photography as a profession.  Since then, I've made the yearly spring tulip bloom at Highland Village, a must visit on my photography schedule." states the artist. Smith's work can be found throughout the state in residential, government and commercial spaces. His work is included in many permanent collections of fine art in Mississippi.
