About Me

Hi, my name is Roy Frankland and I would describe myself as a self taught, fine art photographer. I became interested in photography back in 1998 when I got my first SLR. I was based in South Korea at the time for my main job, but on my return to the UK in 1999, I joined Washington New Town Camera Club, and it was the encouragement I received here that made me continue and learn my darkroom skills. I was awarded “Photographer of the Year” in my first full year at the camera club in 2000. This accolade from my fellow photographers gave me the confidence to continue. My first love in photography was always black and white, and once I saw my first image appearing out of nothing on a blank piece of paper in my darkroom, I was hooked.
Since then I held my first solo exhibition documenting Newcastle-upon-Tyne and I become a member of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) where I obtained my Licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) in 2002. In 2021 I achieved my Associateship (ARPS). My work has appeared in several books, magazines and two exhibitions by the RPS and in 2010 Whilst living and working in China, I publish my book, A different way of life, documenting street life around Asia.
