Frank grew up in South Africa, where he studied fine art at the Johannesburg School of Art and a chance encounter with a photographer who offered him a job made him drop out of college and immerse himself in learning about photography.

Frank has won numerous international awards. They include New York Art Directors Club and many AOP Awards. Also Cannes, several Communication Arts, London Photographic Awards and B&W Spider Awards. He has worked for most of the main adverting agencies and blue chip clients all over the world.

Frank lives and works in a converted pub in east London with his wife Helena, herself a successful photographer, and their two young sons. In between assignments he spends a lot of time shooting personal projects and has now decided to use his expertise to help guide aspiring photographers in their techniques.
