David Frank has been a Journalistic Photographer for over 15 years in the Seattle area. He studied exclusively as an apprentice under ‘Internationally Recognized’ photographer, Ira Lippke. In the mid 90′s he became known for his photographs of children and infants as he performed an average of 1,000 in-home sittings a year. In the late 90′s David found a growing interest and demand for his wedding photography. He was recently featured in Seattle Bride Magazine and was voted amongst the top 10 Seattle Wedding Photographers in the Best of Western Washington 2012 Poll (by King 5 News).
David is also known in Seattle as the founder of Audio Mafia, a visual online journal of the local music scene. You can often find him at a Seattle venue or occasionally hear his shutter on live music shows that are broadcast on KEXP radio. Throughout his career David has showcased photographs taken of dozens of well known bands such as U2, Vampire Weekend, REM, Lenny Kravitz, The Flaming Lips, Weezer, The Hives and M.I.A.
In 2014, David finished his first instructional book, entitled: Real Kids Guidebook: How to capture amazing images of kids without using the word cheese.
David has been married to photographer, Brenda Frank, for over 20 years. Many of Brenda's photographs are displayed on this site as well. She is also Davids first choice for Secondary Wedding Photographer. Together they have 5 children. David Frank’s overall success has been attributed to his ability to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere enabling him to capture the “real” moments that define his photographic style.
“I spend a lot of time looking for love through a rounded piece of glass. My purpose is to transmit what my eyes see and what my heart feels onto a printed image: to immortalize love, capture life, joy and grief in a fraction of a second.” -David Frank
