Before working as a lecturer Frank was a commercial photographer working in advertising and marketing as a portrait and still life photographer. He had worked as an assistant to both an architectural photographer and to a portrait photographer at the Royal Opera House as well as assisting for a film stills company.

After gaining a M.A. (distinction) at Derby University in Photographic Studies he taught at Camberwell College of Art and Croydon College of Art. He now teaches on both the B.A. and M.A. Photographic courses in theory and practice. His photographic practice deals with the spatial relationship between landscape and architecture. He has also made working considering the relationship between sound and the photographic image.
