Pursuing Your Passion Through a Different Lens

PBS39 & TEDxLehighRiver asked me to do a follow up to my previous TEDx talk. This is the write for the event: “Lehigh Valley photographer Frank Smith, who gave a TEDxLehighRiver talk in 2013 called “Looking Through the Lens: Vocation vs Avocation,” will discuss how he found alternative paths to get satisfaction from his work when the pandemic prevented him from exploring the world. His choices offer lessons for all of us.”
I hope you can Join me!

TEDx Lehigh River 2015

Theme: Why Not?

TEDxLehighRiver 2015 will bring together a diverse group of speakers and audience members from the Lehigh Valley and beyond for a program of engaging and thought-provoking presentations and conversation reflecting the quotation from George Bernard Shaw: “You see things and say, Why? But I dream things that never were and say, WHY NOT?”

The event was held this past Saturday at Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown, PA to an audience in excess of a couple hundred people. I love the concept of TED talks. I have had the opportunity to photograph this local event since it started in 2013 and I was one of the original presenters also.

This year’s cast of presenters (see the images below) did not disappoint. They included:

Dr. Catherine Moore
English Teacher, English Literature and Theatre

George Hrab
Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, composer, and heliocentrist

Joyce Marin
Executive Director of Renew Lehigh Valley

Lauren Villaverde
Engineer and entrepreneur

Liz Jordon
Certified yoga instructor trained in Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Michael Brolly
Wood turning artist, teacher, environmentalist
