About Frank

Olympus Trailblazer 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 his skills continue to evolve.

A native Northeasterner, Frank often focuses his lens on regional and local scenery including the Pocono Mountains and the historical sites of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. His raw travel and philanthropic photojournalism covers global themes, shedding light on cultural issues such as regional corruption in areas including South Sudan and Haiti.

“The image quality from Olympus interchangeable lens cameras is second to none. The technology is brilliant, and the size and weight of the equipment provides for ease of portability without sacrificing image quality.”

Frank is dedicated to Olympus interchangeable lens cameras, using the OM-D EM-1 for work and reaching for the OM-D EM-5 for travel and family events.

Frank’s work has been featured in print, in exhibits, and in philanthropic venues including Glow Artworks, a North American-based consortium of 30 photographers’ healing art that encourages the well-being of patients, visitors and workers in healthcare centers and other spaces.
