When it comes to style, Goldsmith keeps chang-
ing in an effort to break limiting thought patterns.
Many of her changes are explained in her spoken
words and dramatic images on the Web at
http://vvvvwdrulgoldsmith.com/photodiary flashsite/
index_photodiary.luml.
One recent change has to do with her attention to
taking pictures of flowers and landscapes now cover-
ing the walls of her Colorado home, one of three
shared with her husband of four years, retired archi-
tect Sidney Schneider.
The couple, who were introduced by rock 'n' roller
Steve Miller, also reside in New York City and in
Woodstock in upper New York
State.
"In my book PhotoDiary, I
write about the experiences of
various [photo] sessions
because I know that's what
people want to know about,"
says Goldsmith, who skis every
morning when she's in
Colorado and enjoys golf in
other places. "I learned a lot
through my relationships and
through the sessions and tried
to share that in the book."

Goldsmith, who has written
with Sting, Todd Rundgren and others. "The reason
there is an 's' on 'Powers' is because I believe the
way people achieve dreams and goals is by asking
for help from other people. It's not just willpower;
it's willpowers."
With all the glam that Goldsmith has enjoyed,
she places a higher value on the influence she has
had on individuals not yet shining through the
beams of an international spotlight.
"What really stands out for me are the times
when people tell me that something I did —
whether a photograph or record — had a strong
effect on them," she says.
"I'll always remember the people sending e-mails
or writing letters that my photography made them
want to be photographers." P1
