As one of the most accomplished photographers of his generation, Smith’s photographs have appeared on countless magazine covers, ad campaigns around the world, newspapers and more. We talk with Brian about how his career began as a sports photographer, his early conversion to Sony cameras and lenses, and how he approaches portraits, especially celebrity portraits.

In Tech Talk, we speak with Sony’s Mark Weir about lens technology and the many complex steps that go into creating a great lens.
