meet frank


My photography career began as a very young boy when my parents sent me to summer camp (Camp Tekawitha).  My father gave me a popular Kodak camera with the drop-in film cartridges and snap flash. My mother made sure I had an open line of credit at the camp canteen just in case I needed anything (like snacks). I took photos of everything... the rustic cabins, canoes, the lake and even the hole in the archery target from where I made a bulls-eye. But the two things that I focused on (excuse the pun) was my “Photo Dissertation” on Birch trees and my “Puppy Portfolio” of the camp’s new puppy. 

When I came home my father hit the roof when he got the bill from the camp. he didn't know they sold film at the canteen. :)  Kodak’s sales probably spiked that month because of me. After he got over the shock of the bill he realized I had an eye for composition and a passion for photography.  He then began to support me and thus a photographer was in the making.

Now, many years later, I still drive to create.  I love taking ordinary images and creatively showing them in a different and/or artistic perspective by using light, color and texture.  My passion is to capture and preserve beauty and memories. Even though it’s nice to have my images hung in homes all around the country and published on magazine covers… the most rewarding achievement is the love and appreciation of my clients.
