The collection spans from 1960 to 1988 and is divided roughly into five parts. The first part are images from Smith's work and outdoor excursions in the Sawtooth Wilderness Area, Canyonlands National Park, (what is now) the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and the Cache-Wasatch National Forest. Also included are many images of Rock Art. The Second part consists of images taken for or used in the Windsinger book and for Windsinger Enterprises. The third part are images from Smith's years in the Marines and cover specialized training, orienteering, and his time in Okinawa and Taiwan. The Fourth part are images of his family, his travels in the U.S. and of his wife, Lillian Francuz. The fifth part are images he took for the Red Baron air-racing team located in Idaho Falls. As well, Smith did quite a bit of outdoor portraiture in Cache Valley and while he was in the Marines. Some of the images pertain to his activism with environmental issues such as the Four Corners Power Plant.
