The SmartShoot Star is a weekly blog series that features a SmartShoot creative. Our fantastic Creative Network features some of the best photographers and filmmakers in the world and we want to make sure they get their due exposure.
We have a rockstar photographer as this week’s SmartShoot Star and his name is Felix Mizioznikov. He’s been with SmartShoot since late 2011 and has done over 100 jobs.
Recently he’s been crushing it with all our partner photo shoots.

Felix: Smartshoot is a great company to work for. They offer competitive rates and make the whole process very easy from start to finish. The support team is always is always quick to respond to any issues or concerns.
What are some of your major accomplishments/awards?
Felix: I can solve the rubik’s cube in under 4 minutes. (Steve: what? get out. I couldn’t do it in 4 days!)
What’s your favorite SmartShoot project?
Felix: I love all the partner photo projects. It gives me the opportunity to travel the state of Florida and meet lots of great people and help them showcase their communities.
How did you get started as a photographer?
Felix: I started in stock photography about a decade ago and still actively submit photos and videos. I photographed a few weddings for friends which generated business, then I photographed a few friends houses which generated business, and here I am today…doing what I love:)
What do you shoot on?
Felix: My primary is an iPhone 5 and I use an old 3gs as backup…..ahhhh just kidding.
I shoot with canon. I have a few 5d mark 2 bodies and various canon lenses and speedlites.
What is our favorite film? Artist? Photographer?
Felix: Toss up between lord of the rings and despicable me.
I love nature photography by Peter Lik.
