Mr. Smyres has been a pioneer among photographers by publishing his work directly to the internet within a contextual and storytelling framework as opposed to a simple gallery.  His popular photography websites, and, and Hudson River Valley real estate property land homes for sale receive more than one million visitors each year from over 150 countries, and they are still growing.    In 2007 they received over 3.2 million visitors.    In 2009, Living Being Media is undergoing
major expansion, with major upgrades to the three sites, and the addition of new, exciting sites and blogs with a totally different look and feel.

"Your pet deserves to be famous!"

        There is a special place in my heart for all kinds of pets, especially dogs.    That love of animals led to the creation of my pet photography specialty.  Pet photography requires a certain knack with animals.  
 It's not easy, so don't let the pictures fool you.  You have to work very fast, and maintain a positive rapport with the animal, plus work the camera
 while moving around a lot.   I sometimes to fundraisers for pet rescue organizations.   Call to discuss a shoot.
