Biography

My first experience with photography happened when my mother gave me my first Canon 35mm camera and about 15 rolls of film to have some fun with when I was about 24 years old. Within a month or so I realized that my love for that camera was real strong and I enjoyed photography as an art form. From that moment in my life I began photographing everything I loved in this world, and after some time decided that it would be a good career. I then began working as an assistant to some of New York’s finest fashion, lifestyle, portrait, bridal, and product photographers. I was able to work all around the New York area, and also travel across the USA and Caribbean doing various types of photo shoots as an assistant to these photographers, where I gained experience and learned my craft as a master photographer. I also studied Fine Art Photography at The School of Visual Arts in New York City where I further developed my photography skills.

I opened my first studio in 1992 in Westchester County, New York. Through hard work and dedication, I became a skilled bridal photojournalist, and a model/fashion and headshot photographer. After 20 years in Miami, Florida, I decided to expand to the west coast of California. Frank currently resides in both La Quinta, California, and Southeast, Florida, with his lovely wife Angela, and their many adorable pets. He has been shooting local weddings, destination weddings, models, fashion photography, headshots, portraits, lifestyle photographs, product photography, and corporate events for the past 20 years in Southeast, Florida, New York, California, and all of the Caribbean.

Frank’s passion for photography is as strong as it ever was, and he continues to please all his clients that he shoots for with his fair prices and exceptional award winning photography. My loves in my life are my wife Angela, my family, beaches, sunsets, deserts, mountains, photography and preety much any beautiful location. Life is sweet so enjoy its beauty !!
