frankhunt: photographer

Frank is a freelance photographer living in Hillsboro, Oregon.  His current passion and focus is photographing for local non-profit groups.  Frank is affiliated with Creative Cares, a Portland  based non-profit organization that matches the creative community with causes they care about.  "I have  been  creating photographic images for at least as long as I can remember.  I began this photographic journey sometime  around age 10 or 12 when my grandmother let me use her Kodak "Brownie" camera.  As I recall, it  used 120 film.  Of course, it was all black and white back then, since color film and processing was quite  expensive.  Over time I  moved from taking "snapshots" to making pictures.  I studied photography at Portland  Community College and  attended many classes and workshops over the years from local fine art photographers.  But  most of my  photographic  education comes from trying new things and getting "out there" and shooting lots of  images.  My  web site currently  contains nearly 150,000 images."
 "I especially enjoy photographing and working with kids because they are so spontaneous and happy.  Living in the Pacific Northwest  also allows me access to incredible scenery.  I especially like waterfalls.  Most recently I have been shooting  flowers because of their incredible colors and form."
 "I have a portable "studio" which I can bring on-site if necessary.  I also shoot in the kitchen, the garage, my office, the  mountains, the coast and  anyplace else I can find.  I belong to a couple local photographer's groups which
 provide feedback and challenge me  creatively.

 "I am a long time Nikon guy -- Until recently, I have been shooting with two Nikon D300s, but just purchased a D4, probably the coolest camera I will ever own.  For  goofing around I also have a Nikon P7000 point-n-shoot, another nice camera."

 "My hardware history: Kodak Brownie "Hawkeye"; Bessler-Topcon Auto 100; Nikkormat (my first 35mm with  interchangeable lenses); Mamiya C330, Mamiya RB-67 Pro; Casio QV-11 (my first digital camera - .25 megapixel,  320 x 240); Kodak DC260 (2.1 megapixel); Nikon CoolPix 5700 (now up to 5 megapixels); then the SLRs: D70s,  D80, D300, D300s (12.3 megapixels) and finally the D4 at 16.2 megapixels.  My current lens family includes: 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye; 12-24mm f/4;  24-70mm f/2.8; 70-200mm f/2.8; 80-400mm f/4.5 VR; 60mm f/2.8 macro. I have a bunch of Nikon  Speedlights and  some fixed studio lighting stuff.  I'm ready for pretty much anything that is not underwater."
