About Robert FERD Frank

Robert FERD Frank I became interested in becoming a visual artist in the year 2000. I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by many talented local artists which have been a great influence on me. My painting techniques were developed by painting on art cars and watching others paint. My photography began with the introduction of the digital age. I became fascinated the use of Photoshop and various other Apps for digital artwork. My interest with the camera came later, somewhere around 2005.

My early years as an artist were focused mainly on music. I first played trumpet in high school, and my interest changed to rock & roll after the English invasion of the Stone's and Beatles.
I played guitar in a local band, the Aerovons, that recorded an album at Abbey Road in 1969.
In the early 70's I was bas guitarist in a well known local band Gibraltar.
In the mid 70's I hooked up with John Cougar(Mellencamp), and recorded 4 albums with him as his bass player.

All of my images are taken from a gut instinct. I see a beautiful moment, I react, and I take the picture, which can happen anywhere, anytime, and be any subject. It could be magical light, an expression, a combination of color or shapes, a special moment in life.....
I believe you need be in spirit of the image before the editing process begins to get the best results, otherwise the end product can turn out lifeless. Some of my images are edited immediately after I shoot them... with others I wait until the time is right.
I work intuitively, and let the process of editing the image take me where ever it takes me. I am a big fan of "painterly" images. The final reward for me is the print and publishing on social media.
