As a Southern California native, Bodhi Smith has spent much of his life as an active outdoorsman, including sports such as backcountry skiing, splitboarding, and enjoying our natural outdoors.  It was only natural that his passion for the outdoors would find it’s way to photography.
Bodhi will discuss getting past the gear and specs in photography, and explain what the mind needs in order to truly make art.  Bodhi describes himself as in impressionistic photographer, and he will take the time to share with you his thought processes in making his images, and how you can adopt some of these methods to stop making pics and start making art.

Bodhi has been a regular ribbon winner at the San Diego County Fair, and was recognized as the 2016 “Best of Nature” winner at the San Diego Museum of Natural History.
