Previous Guest Editor | Stephen Smith
Stephen is an agrarian, adventure travel and lifestyle photographer. Growing up in North Carolina in an active family he spent most of his developmental days outside exploring his grandmother’s farm, the woods, streams and lakes of this bio-diversified Southern landscape. Stephen received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Colorado while finding time to explore the Rocky Mountains. Five months on a solo motorcycle adventure through South America piqued his interest in farming, grape growing and winemaking leading him to Napa, Ca where he got his hands dirty working for boutique wineries and vineyards. In 2012, he found his next job and moved back to Colorado to work as the Director of Business Development for the first Organic distillery in the US and only Biodynamic vineyard in Colorado. Half a year on a 90,000 acre cattle ranch opened Stephen’s eyes to large scale land management, animal husbandry as well as agricultural and economic diversification.
