He’s shot everyone. From Jenna Jameson to George Clooney to Lemmy from Motorhead. But what truly interested us about Frank Ockenfels (FWO3) was his process.

As more and more people gain access to and are inundated with imagery on phones and computers, the art of the process is fading to very black.
But Frank is very different.
From his subjects, to his process, to his theory, every aspect is filled with integrity and creativity, even though the world around him continues to shoot their food in poor light. He taught us a lot in our time with him, and gave us a lot of new ways to really screw up our photography for the better.
