"A professional photographer since 1992, Frank has done just about every type of photography one can think of; from studio to scientific to wedding photography. In 2007,Frank began his 1000 day, 25000 mile journey as an official photographer for the National Park Service, a job that took him to the most beautiful and wondrous places in the country. In his off duty hours , he hiked and photographed over 150 Parks where he photographed images for his personal project: Beautiful America. The NPS wrapped up in 2010, and he continues to visit and photograph the parks across the country. His goal is to see and shoot and share as much of America as possible. He's currently showing his personal works in gallery exhibits across the country and teaching photography to aspiring landscape photographers at his "hike and shoot" workshops.
