Meet the Photographer


Welcome to Lightsmith Photography.  My name is Jim Smith and I have been a professional photographer in the Oklahoma City area since 2003. In addition to my photography business, I’m also a full-time professor at Southern Nazarene University where I teach photography, video production, print layout and mass communication.

My wife Lori and I have been married for 25 years and we have a daughter who is the joy of our lives.  Lori manages the ROC Resale Shop which supports the needy in our community.  We attend Oklahoma City First Church of the Nazarene and we are actively engaged in other community service activities.

A good photograph stops a moment from running away.
