|Bio||Growing up in Orange County and currently residing by the beach in Costa Mesa, CA, Francisco started his photographic journey at an early age of 14. In High School he began learning all things photography from the origin of photography, Film. He learned to roll his own negatives, light his subjects and develop his film and prints. He believes this was essential to being a professional in his field and takes great pleasure in knowing what it was like to shoot and work with film. In College he studied Film, Graphic Design and Computer Animation. Shortly after Francisco started his photography company 'Photogenix Professional Photography'. Concentrating in Weddings and other social events he continued teaching himself by reading, looking and mimicking his favorite shooters and photos. His main responsibilities in the company where main photographer and video editor. After a few years photographing groups of people he felt he was missing something, he wasn't loving his photography and it wasn't until he started to shoot one on one's in and out of the studio did he find his real passion in photography. His time is now spent shooting fashion, editorial, swimsuits and nudes for various print and online magazines. His goal is to be able to create amazing work for future coffee table books, like the many he collects of his favorite and top inspirational photographers.|
