So if you haven’t noticed, I’m mostly a Peter Capaldi and David Tennant fangirl, but that said, I do appreciate Matt Smith. He was a joy to watch as the Eleventh Doctor, but he just isn’t my cup of tea in terms of men that make me all gooey on the inside. Not his fault, I tend to have a thing for older, more “mature” men (my husband and I are 15 years apart).
But I will say that, especially as a photographer, I really love how interesting and captivating Matt Smith is as a subject. There really IS something about him that catches your attention, something not classically beautiful yet is simultaneously sexy and intriguing. In a way, he is a kind of combination of some of my favorite things about David Tennant (boyish, joyful, goofy yet serious) and Peter Capaldi (that art school, edgy, experimental but chic type of confidence). And I love that he’s so enthusiastic in panels and interviews. Matt Smith seems like a really solid human being.
These are some of my favorite photos of him where he did a proper shoot. The camera really loves him. It would be amazing to have the chance to photograph him.
