R.B. Smith, a native of Michigan, now also residing several months in Lakeland, Florida, has been a professional photographer since 1965. He has been awarded many honors by both the Professional Photographers of Michigan and America and was selected in 1975 as the exclusive photographer to represent the Professional Photographers of Michigan in the national bicentennial international traveling photographic exhibit sponsored by the Professional Photographers of America.
R.B. has displayed in many state art fairs and private shows and has had work published by Soft Touch Greetings, Abbey Calendars, Reminisce Magazine, Michigan Magazine, Professional Photographer Magazine, American Geographic, and many other state, national, and local publications. He was selected as the two-time cover artist for the Michigan Wine Country Magazine.
Recently several of R.B.'s images were accepted for display at the Ridge Art Association in Winter Haven, Florida.
His fine art style could be described as impressionistic and nostalgic, with a touch of romanticism.
