Frank has always been interested in photography, taking his little Kodak along to a local country music park and photographing his favorite 60’s country artists.
He has been listening to old country and bluegrass music most of his life since his teen years, when there was no distinction between the two.
He got his first SLR film camera upon college graduation and operated a weekend wedding photography business for about 15 years. He built a darkroom in his home when he started shooting black and white photos.
Frank purchased his first digital SLR camera in 2006 and re-fell in love with photography, giving talks at his local church on digital SLR operation for those who were confused by the transition from film cameras to digital.
He is also the “sound man” at his church and small concerts, and a record collector.
He owns 78s, 45s and LPs, which he converts to CD at home on his computer for his own listening enjoyment.
Frank is an autoharp player and is involved with the annual Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering in Pennsylvania (mlag.org).
Frank’s day job was as an electrical engineer until his most recent jobs gave way to downsizing and layoffs.
