I was born in the Netherlands but have lived in Australia most of my life. I've been involved in the arts of photography and painting since the 1960s and my work is represented in private collections, Government offices and overseas, as well as in books and other publications. My photographs and art have won a number of awards and been displayed at some major exhibitions.

Johannes Smit Photo Art began in 2000 after I left my full time job which, over a span of 28 years, took me to 47 countries. Having moved from Sydney to Mount Buffalo in the Victorian high country I sought to build a portfolio of landscapes featuring the beautiful alpine regions of Australia. My work was sold through various galleries in NE Victoria.

With the advent of improved technology and the emerging popularity of online shopping, I'm pleased to be able to now offer my prints and other photographic products on this site.
