Hi, I’m Antonio Franco and I’m a professional photographer.
Back in 2006 I said good bye to my 9-to-5 engineering job and started taking photos. I began shooting concerts in Venezuela, just out of love for photography and live music.
At some point, I shot a friend’s wedding and discovered a new area of photography that would bring me great satisfaction. Weddings are a top opportunity for good photos, everyone would agree. For me, it’s an opportunity to tell a story, a very personal one.
I have attended to workshops in U.S.A, with Scott Kelby, Christopher Anderson and Eugene Richards. I also attended a photography workshop with top Venezuelan Wedding Photographer Jorge Victoria.
I regard myself as a versatile photographer. I’m very adaptative to couple’s requirements. I feel comfortable taking an unobtrusive ‘Fly on the wall’ approach, capturing candid moments and situations as they unfold but I’m also keen to give instructions and make posed portraits if that’s what my customers want. By experience, most couples are happy with a ratio of 80% candid/ 20% posed photos.
With regard to my photographic style, I favour emotion and decisive moments over photo technical perfection. I prefer photos to be organic and produce an emotional response. On portraits, I like couples to interact and capture them as they do it.
I’m based in Liverpool, covering all of the North West. I’m also available for destination weddings.
