Frankie started his professional career in Dublin. He worked in Temple Lane Studios for many years before starting on his graphic path. He worked as a desktop publisher for Graphic Reproductions before becoming the picture desk manager at Inpho Photography. After meeting his soulmate Cathy he left Dublin for the south of France for a few months before discovering Barcelona in 2000. There he has worked as a freelance photo editor, location manager and photo retoucher for various photographers over the years. He started the creative agency Studio 83 in 2019 where they provide photography and design solutions for commercial clients and also have a big interest in the arts. Clients include MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya), Apple and La Caixa. Frankie’s photography has been published in La Mono Magazine, Adobe’s 99U Magazine, The Guardian, The British Journal of Photography, Metropolitan Magazine and Sparky Mag. In December 2020 his project ‘Train’ was shortlisted for the publication ‘The Crisis & the Future of Democracy’ from the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation. In 2021 the British Journal of Photography chose two of his images from the same project for their online exhibition ‘Edition 365’. In November 2022, two of his images were chosen for the Halftone Art Fair in the Library Project in Dublin.
