ASP Photography I typically prefer to be credited as asp photos, just to maintain some anonymity. My full name is Alan Smith, though, if that makes more sense for the publication. As for a bio, I originally pursued a career as an illustrator but put down my pencils and brushes in the late ‘90s and started working at an internet company (like so many others). I came back to art through photography in around 2009. For the past several years, film photography, shooting mostly female subjects in natural light and settings, has dominated my work. In a moment of stoned epiphany I realized that I wanted to make pictures that look like Marc Bolan songs sound. I reckon that’s still a worthy goal. ‡ 36 Clear Nude | summer 2015
