The “Thousand Year Floods” of 2015 that dumped as much as two feet of rain in short order on communities across South Carolina.


The 2005 relief response to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina along the Mississippi coast.


The chaos of the Hurricane Floyd evacuation in 1999 with 3.5 million people in four Southeastern states caught up in fear and gridlock.


Mic Smith has chronicled the impact of these climate emergencies and many others throughout his career as a photojournalist.

From 1994-2008, Mic earned state and national honors for his work with The Post and Courier in Charleston, before leaving the newspaper to start his own business, based from his Isle of Palms home. And while he expanded his efforts to include portrait and marketing photography, he has continued his work in journalism, including assignments from The Associated Press. The “Thousand Year Floods” of 2015 that dumped as much as two feet of rain in short order on communities across South Carolina. The 2005 relief response to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina along the Mississippi coast. The chaos of the Hurricane Floyd evacuation in 1999 with 3.5 million people in four Southeastern states caught up in fear and gridlock.


Through the years, Mic has captured a wide range of subjects from unforgettable football games to presidential campaigns to the beauty of the Lowcountry landscape. Yet many of his most riveting images still come during hurricane season, as the threat of disruption and destruction have become an increasingly expected part of life along the coast. And even in less frantic moments, such as this frame that Mic recently captured of Edisto’s eroding Botany Bay, the dramatic forces of nature are often on display
