Mikey Smith is best known for his creative work and visuals. His early years based around music and the coasts of Cornwall. He played around with cameras and documented his adventures by the sea each day.
His cinematic approach, evolved into him creating to dramatic short films and photographic work based around heavy sea areas. He has worked with singer/song writer Ben Howard; not just to film, but as a backing singer too.
He has a good eye for capturing moments and mood. His cinematic short films are dramatic such as his film ‘Esmeralda’ which also features Ben Howard. Usually, work that I tend to gravitate towards, involve muted tones, use of negative space and minimalism. His work is much visually darker than I usually enjoy, but I appreciate how he captures movement of the waves and using music, to create an atmosphere a certain mood.
