"The road to happiness lies in two simple principles: find what it is that interests you and that you can do well, and when you find it put your whole soul into it - every  bit of energy and ambition and natural ability you have - John D. Rockefeller III"

Brent spent his youth pounding up and down a swimming pool for his Country followed by a stint in the Navy as an Officer. Aftert 25 years in the global IT sector he finally turned his true passion for cinematography, photography and aerial film into a full time career. Brent multi-tasks – flipping from stills to film without hesitation, using  his pilot’s license when drone work is commissioned.  As much as Brent loves photography his heart lies in filming because he believes it is the perfect medium to explore human relationships and true storytelling. He  works side by side with his wife and fellow Sony Europe Imaging Ambassador, Kate Hopewell-Smith,  as an educator and mentor for Training byLUMIERE  and in their destination wedding business. They describe  their style as 'fine art storytelling' promising to capture natural emotion and human connection in a stylish and creative way.  Crafting  work that is genuine, beautiful and artistic, that stands out but also stands the test of time.
