Currently I shoot sports more than anything else, but I also shoot portraits and other things from time to time. I have a wide range of experience with many different genres of photography.
As of 2022 some of my current and previous clients include:
Houston Dynamo & Houston Dash
United Press International
Cal Sport Media
Houston Texans Cheerleaders
The Facts newspaper
Brazos Monthly magazine
various local sports teams and high school teams
My work has been published by various newspapers, websites, and magazines – with the most noteworthy being Sports Illustrated, ESPN, CNN, and the Wall Street Journal. I’ve been featured on the TV special “Houston Texans Cheerleaders: Making the Calendar” in 2016 and 2017. I've had various shots used by calendar companies, postcard companies, trading card companies, and by a national sporting goods chain.
I live in Lake Jackson, Texas. I was born in Freeport and grew up in Brazoria (actually the village of Wild Peach), and I graduated from Columbia High School. I served in the U.S. Air Force for 4 years (mostly in San Antonio, as well as Mississippi and Saudi Arabia). I graduated college with a business degree from the University of Houston–Clear Lake. After college, I've worked for Wholesale Electric Supply in a data management position, for KBR in Baghdad Iraq as a Senior Operations Specialist in 2004-2005, for Ellen Lighting & Hardware as an Inventory Manager, and currently for Brazosport ISD as a teacher. For over 10 years I've also had my own photography business, and I do photo jobs whenever possible on evenings and weekends (and more during the Summer break).
My photo experience includes shooting landscapes, all kinds of portraits, weddings, sports, news, concerts, graduations, business/promotional shots, real estate, and probably other things I’m forgetting about.
I can be found on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as "Trask Smith”, but my social media use isn't very frequent. If you're interested in booking me for any photo jobs, please let me know.
