Toby Smith, 28, is based in London, UK. He graduated from the Ma Contemporary Photography at London College of Communication in December 2008. This was after both spending time employed in the British Army Infantry and 2 years working across East and Central Africa utilizing his degree in Environmental Science. Now his focus lies on large scale projects concerning energy and environmental issues for editorial publication, exhibition, communication and advocacy.

Toby is a contemporary and reportage photographer specialising in landscape, architecture and unique lighting conditions. Using large-format traditional negative enables him to capture landscape in extremely low-light with exposures lasting many hours and produce incredibly detailed prints. This gives a uniquely captivating other-worldly presence to his work. He also utilises modern time-lapse equipment to compress the changing landscape conditions into video form, or location lighting to change the aesthetic.
