Liked on YouTube: Exploring the Intersection of AI and Photography: A Conversation with Matthew Jordan Smith

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing how we live and work. From self-driving cars to virtual assistants, AI is becoming increasingly integrated into our daily lives. In this interview, I sit down with renowned photographer and author Matthew Jordan Smith to discuss the impact of AI on the photography industry and how it is shaping the future of art and creativity.

Capturing moments with an eye for inspiration. Matthew Jordan Smith is the photographer behind some of the world’s most iconic images. From Zendaya to Oprah, Samuel L. Jackson to the Prince of Monaco. Creative Storyteller and Nikon Ambassador Matthew is the proud recipient of the Western Digital Spotlight Award in 2022.

In 2021, Matthew made history when the International Olympic Committee commissioned him to document life in the Olympic Village and live with the athletes during the 2021 Olympic games. Only two other photographers in history have documented life in the Olympic Village (in 1936 and 1999), but none lived in the Olympic village alongside the athletes.

Matthew is working on a new photography book based on his decade-long association with Aretha Franklin. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Matthew now resides in Tokyo, Japan working between Japan, New York, and Los Angeles.
