head shot


Hey, I’m Rodney, owner of Rodney Smith Photography. I’m an Avery County native and love calling western North Carolina and the Appalachian Mountains home. I went to Appalachian State University in Boone, NC for my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Communication Disorders and Reading Education.
A long cry from photography!
However, serving in a professional capacity as a speech-language pathologist has provided me twenty years of experience working with families, other professionals and children with disabilities aged three years old through high school. People say I’m a “people person” and thankfully, people like to work with me!
If you love printed art portraits, I’m your man.
I specialize in wall hangings, acrylic blocks, and albums. Creating personalized art from your wedding or portrait session for you to share with your family (current and future generations!) is a service I love to provide.
So if this sounds like you, give me a call. I look forward to speaking with and getting to know you.
