David Smith

David shot his first broadcast television footage at the age of 18 for the CBS Sports Spectacular series and spent ten years shooting sports. During that time he also received a degree in Photographic Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Breaking out of sports David has since concentrated on entertainment television with a special emphasis on music, dance and drama. He developed strong expertise in studio work during five years on the original Cosby Show, and has since shot numerous sit-coms on both video and film. In between concerts, operas and sit-coms, there's also been time for plenty of corporate video, children's television and work for non-profits.

Taking on production tasks for a documentary on a local school building bond issue, David began what became Visionsmith Television. Since then he's been conceptualizing programs, writing scripts, producing and editing for a wide range of clients from the Texaco - Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network to local businesses. His special love is creating fund raising and informational programs for non-profit agencies, where he can combine his broadcast expertise and cutting edge technology to produce cost effective video with positive social impact.
