Frankie Malone, photographer

I have been working in the field of photography and design for over 25 years.  I started out as a desktop publisher for Graphic Reproductions in Dublin for 3 years before becoming the picture desk manager at Inpho Photography for a further 6 years.  I have worked as a photo editor, location manager and photo retoucher for various photographers.  I take photographs, urban landscapes…. I see photography as a language, an art form.  The greater the photograph the less we need to say about it.

SKILLS:

PHOTO RETOUCHING
At Inpho Photography I managed the picture desk for 6 years where I began my education in photo retouching thanks to Billy Stickland and Norman McCloskey.  Since then I have worked for various photographers including Cathy Loughran, Derek Speirs and Patrick Bolger.  I have worked with the Adobe suite for 20 years and am proficient in Lightroom and Photoshop.

DESIGN:
I started my career working as a desktop publisher for Graphic Reproductions. Here I learn how to design and print.  Since then I have specialised in logo, poster and brochure design.  I have designed several photobooks for my client Cathy Loughran Photography and have just published my own book ‘Time To Fly’.  I have created several websites including ones for the set designer Xavier Erra and journalist Teresa Bau. You can view some examples of my work here.

ADOBE LIGHTROOM:
I give private classes in Adobe Lightroom and consider myself an expert after working with this amazing software since it’s inception in 2007.

LOCATION MANAGER:
With photographer Patrick Bolger and videographer Matt Boyd I worked as the location manager for the client Gocycle over a 5 day shoot in Barcelona. The client was Dialogue Marketing.  I also work on a regular basis with the photographer Cathy Loughran on various shoots and locations in Barcelona.

I have been taking urban landscape photography of the city and it’s surroundings for over 10 years.  I came 3rd in the prestigious XIII Premio Grand Marina De Fotografía in 2013 and my work has appeared in various publications including:
