Garth Frandsen’s interest in photography began as a child when he received a Kodak 110 camera. Eventually
he commandeered his mothers Nikon SLR and never looked back. Action has been the theme of his photography
from the beginning; whether it was a crop dusting biplane, a cowboy, bull rider, motocrosser, snowboarder,
wild animal or a landfill operation, if it moves it has his attention. He participates in most of the sports
that he photographs. Garth also has a quiet side – a passion for landscape photography. He loves to be
outdoors and finds great satisfaction in creating images in unique lighting situations.
Garth studied photojournalism and design at the College of Eastern Utah and the University of Utah. Along
with the formal education, he took opportunities to learn from very accomplished photographers at workshops
and seminars. He is capable in a conventional dark room working with black and white and color reversal
film and prints.
In 1992, while still in college, he began his business and has been on the cutting edge of technology ever
since. In 1994, while still shooting film, his darkroom became digital. Although he still remains a big
fan of high quality slide film, he went fully digital in 2003 when he felt that high end digital images had
enough quality to be presentable and the cameras were responsive and fast enough to be useful for fast paced
action photography. Now the ability to rapidly process images from capture to print has enabled Garth to expand
his services to a wider market. Now it is possible to print up to poster sized images the same day at events
and also transmit images around the world to clients shortly after the photograph is taken.
