Frank DeFreitas (born January 1, 1956 in Camden, New Jersey)[citation needed] is the maintainer of the website HoloWorld, aimed at amateur holographers, and author of Shoebox Holography. He instructs people new to holography how to make simple holograms, for example by using a laser pointer.

He started working on holography in 1983 with no formal training in science.[1] He is a 2007 recipient of the International Holography Fund (IHF) grant award program, for the documentation of creative holographic artists through internet broadcasting[2] and has provided laser and holography educational programs for schools, ranging from elementary to university level.[3] He hosts an internet radio program, HoloTalk[4] and has recently begun publishing a free companion e-zine.[5]
