Former Atlanta Photographer Takes His Own Life


WGCL Chief Photographer Jon Smith recently left his job at the Atlanta station. He was talented with a camera and could tell a great story with just his lens. 

Late last week, Smith took his own life. He left behind his two boys and his wife Cara.

This business has so many highs and it's awesome, but it also has a lot of lows and they can take their toll. Don't be afraid to reach out if you need help. I can promise that as bad as the lows are, a high is coming right around the corner. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Smith's wife and two boys. If you want to help out, here's a link.
