Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:

My name is Frank I currently reside in Tucson, Arizona. I have been a Photographer for about 6 years.

My passion for photography supersedes most things in my life. The exception is my wife of 17 years Myra, whose passion for photography matches my own? Her beauty and passion for photography ignited the spark that set in motion my journey to the joys of all things photographic.

My existence is much like everyone else’s, in respect to the 9:00 to 5:00 grind of everyday life. I feel my goal for photography is the same as my goal in life. Find, and experience all things beautiful.

My photography style is eclectic in the sense that I am always looking for the unusual one of a kind setting. That one moment that can be captured in time, but tells a story that last forever. Rather it be Nature, Portraiture, or Landscape. I want the photographs themselves to open up and invite you into, and be a part of the world as it was for that second in time.

Before I snap a picture, I try to let the picture find me. What I mean by this is. There are often times that I drive into the city to find a building in the metropolis of a concrete, and asphalt jungle, searching for the perfect architecturally prospective building, and the angle best suited to tell its story. For a split second I look down to find a single beautiful, and vibrant colored flower that against all odds has grown up through a minute crack in the asphalt. The longer I looked at it, the more my focus changed from the building, to the lone flower protruding from the asphalt. As I reset my camera and leaned in to take the shot I smiled and thought to myself. Got It!

I then reset my camera and continued my search. I found the building I wanted to shoot. After an hour or so I finished the shoot and walked back toward my vehicle excited to pass the flower I had seen earlier. Sadly, it was not to be. Someone had set several bags of trash directly on top of it. As I walked past I thought that, what was once so beautiful, the footprint of life had snuffed it out. I realized that although I was searching for a beautiful building. It was the flower that had found me. It was I who captured its life. Through my camera, its beauty, life, and vibrant colors would be etched in time forever. It’s my story. My moment in time.

I don't limit my photography to one element or subject. To do so in my opinion would be limiting ones full potential and artistic vision. I attempt with every picture I take to allow the photograph to tell a story without any actual words being spoken. Although the stories may be individually different. The fact that it inspires a story makes it a huge accomplishment.
My Photography Equipment:
Canon XTI
