I was born in Charleston, SC to a big family of hard workers who loved to socialize and party together on weekends and holidays. Things could get loud and I loved it all - soaking it in from the sidelines while looking through my View-Master or tearing apart an old radio to figure out how the sound came out. Sometimes I was called on to make a martini ( I can make one for you (and me), if you'd like). Later, I studied anthropology in college and underwater archaeology in graduate school. Between my studies I played in a band, cooked in restaurants, setup a darkroom, and assisted some great photographers. I decided I wanted to take pictures and make a career of it. I moved to Berlin, traveled lots, and ultimately returned to the South. I've been fortunate to work with some great creatives in the advertising and editorial worlds - telling stories with pictures of people, travel, and food. Clients include: AARP, American Express, Art Culinaire, Artisan, Beam, Inc., Bon Appetit, Bulleit Bourbon, ChefWear, Conde Nast Traveler, Cooking Light, Country Living, Dwell, Food Arts, Food&Wine, Gallo, GQ, Hemispheres, Hostess Brands, Intercontinental Hotels, Le Creuset, Maine Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Mazda, Men's Journal, The New York Times Magazine, Outside, Ski, Southern Living, Story Farm, Time Inc., Travel+Leisure, Virtuoso Life, Winkreative. I'm proud to be a contributing photographer to Garden&Gun, Maine and Charleston magazines. My work has been exhibited in the James Beard House, and both an editorial feature on oysters, and a book I photographed with friend Chef Sean Brock, Heritage, have won James Beard Awards. A cookbook I photographed with Sara Foster won an IACP award for photography.  When not on assignment I enjoy cycling, fishing, cooking, connecting with people, tinkering with vintage audio, and collecting oysters from the banks of the nearby Folly River. My friends call me lots of names, but I generally go by "Frank".
