Schmidt Gallery was founded by Kurt Schmidt with the vision to establish a photo-centric gallery in the heart of Montgomery county in Texas. After leaving the corporate mine-field of IT, Schmidt wanted to pursue his more artistic side and started his own woodworking business. He quickly realized this would take longer to get off the ground and simultaneously decided to open up a gallery that could be shared with other photography enthusiasts. Although it is all run online at the moment, Schmidt Gallery has dreams of opening up a brick and mortar gallery in The Woodlands just north of Houston.
As a fellow photographer, Schmidt has combined his longtime interest in scuba diving and focuses most of his photography on capturing the complexities of sealife. Through constant trial and error he has managed to produce some wonderfully unique snapshots of underwater life. His passion for photography started at an early age where the only available medium was film. Although it came with it’s challenges, both financially and technically, Kurt decided to pick it back up when high-quality digital cameras started to be produced more widely. He reimagined what underwater photography could be and decided to fashion his own waterproof camera complete with a powerful lighting rig.
With some encouragement from his community, Kurt Schmidt has opened up a gallery where other photographers like him can make and sell their work. He is looking for artists that either are working in the field and have no platform yet to show and sell their work, or those who call themselves hobbyists and need a little encouragement to get their photographs out into the public. With the prevalence of photography online, it isn’t easy for emerging artists to be discovered or for art collectors and buyers to find fresh talent. Schmidt Gallery is the place where those paths can cross and buyers can find a unique variety of images to display in their businesses, homes and studios.
Whether you are a photographer who is trying to take off as an artist, or an art collector in search of inspiring works to fill your home, Schmidt Gallery is here to service you. We are a gallery for the artist by the artist. Our mission is to provide a place to sell art without the overburdening of promotion, marketing and running a start-up business.
