Hey, I'm Frank (he/him) & I am a Photographer & Graphic Designer living in Kamloops, British Columbia.

I graduated from the Digital Art & Design program at Thompson Rivers University & have since developed long-term working relationships with a variety of local companies. I'm currently the in-house designer for Kamloops Art Gallery & Rigour & Whimsy.

In the off chance I'm not off wandering with my camera, you'll find me listening to records, working in my studio, sifting through any & all sorts of printed matter looking for inspiration, or enjoying a quality beverage (these days, one that's usually made by an Okanagan winery).

For my work, I draw inspiration from ordinary & unassuming places, emotional connection & ambient light. My photographs evoke a sense of nostalgia & are formed on the basis of using only natural light, while my design practices are generally a combination of postmodern influence & minimalism.

I am currently expanding my photography portfolio to include creative portraiture, branding & commercial work so I am looking for new opportunities to work with like-minded people. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, don't hesitate to say hello!

Testimonials

"Frank did an extraordinary job of understanding the style we were looking for. 

We had a simple wedding and wanted to spend a very short amount of time taking staged photos. 

The number of beautiful images that came out of that session and from the candid images he took throughout the day truly blows me away. 

He is friendly, down to earth, professional, and easy to work with. 

We could not be happier with the final photos and with our experience. 

Thank you, Frank, for capturing our day so perfectly."
