Loma Smith's fine art portraiture is a reflection of her ongoing passion to capture the extra-ordinary qualities she finds in people and places. Her artistry in composition and unique perspective, along with the ability to capture emotion, is Loma's signature. A Loma Smith fine art image is an archival quality print or canvas that transforms a special moment into a lasting image. Loma's love for photography expanded while studying the subtlety of composition and lighting under Ansel Adams understudy Milton Halberstadt, professor at the University of Oregon. She studied photography and design at the Cornish Institute of Allied Arts in Seattle, Washington. Currently, Loma is in the process of qualifying for the honored title of Master Photographer.
Recently, her image titled "Inner Beauty", a Victoria cruziana was awarded "Court of Honor". Her black and white photograph titled "Platinum Pears" was among the top Photographers of America's prestigious Loan Collection. Loma often exhibits her photographs at the Photographic Image Gallery in downtown Portland. She is currently working on a series "Images That Transform and Heal - Night Blooming Water Lilies".
Loma is a central Oregon native and has a business in Bend as well as her studio in West Linn. She is an active member of the Professional Photographers of America and Oregon.
