John Mathew Smith

Since 1990 Celebrity Photographer John
Mathew Smith (JMS) has photographed more than
1,000 of the most celebrated people of our time,
specializing in close and detailed portraiture.

During the past ten years, several of his photos
have garnered worldwide attention: Mikhail and
Raisa who captured the world’s heart in their quest
for peace and JFK Jr and Carolyn happily kissing.

Sadly, it took a tragedy to give John his most
well-known image–that of Princess Diana on what
would be her last trip to America.  This photograph
that portrayed a sweet girl-next-door quality graced
the cover of the best-selling issue in the
seventy-year history of U. S. News & World Report.
