Igor the photographerErotica // Sunday, 04 Dec 2011
My name is Nate Smith but pretty much everyone calls me Igor. I was born and raised about a mile from the Virginia/DC border which makes me technically from the South but don't tell anyone. I got into photography to shoot the punk bands in DC that were on the record label that I started when I was 15. By the time I was 17 I was sure I was going to be either Glen E. Friedman or a serious documentarian like Bruce Davidson. I wanted to be taking very serious important photos that people would remember forever but somehow along the way I became a party photographer.
