Olympus Visionary* Frank Smith is a self-taught photographer whose love for the craft goes back to a very early age. Decades later, Frank’s passion for photography has yet to fade. As a “philanthropic photojournalist,” Frank has traveled to many parts of the world, including Atacama, Cuba, Bhutan, Iceland, Central America and Mongolia and India. His focus is on telling visual stories that shed light on such problems as corruption in South Sudan and Haiti and sex trafficking in Mumbai. A native northeasterner, Frank also focuses his lens on national and regional scenery in the U.S. His work has been featured in the media, print, exhibits, and in philanthropic awareness campaigns. His focus today is on travel, industrial ruins, outdoors, abstract/art and philanthropic photo-journalism. He teaches workshops and classes in conjunction with Arts Quest, Olympus, photography clubs and regional camera stores and nonprofits. Recent exhibits have included “Atacama - A Lunar Landscape”; “Near and Far,” an 8 year compilation of India; “Bhutan - The Land of the Thunder Dragon”; “Allentown State Hospital – A Different View” and “The Birth of a Nation—South Sudan”.  (*Olympus Visionaries are award-winning professional photographers who travel the world with Olympus products to capture life’s beauty and splendor.)
