J. Frederick Smith (1917-2006) was an illustrator for magazines like Argosy, Collier's, The Saturday Evening Post, Esquire, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion, and Cosmopolitan. In 1952, he was recruited by Esquire magazine to create pinups and covers.

Smith began a transition to the field of photography beginning in 1956, and is notable for being the photographer of the first cover of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 1964.
