FRANK COUCH PHOTOGRAPHY
GET TO KNOW FRANK
For over 35 years I've had the pleasure of capturing moments and stunning images of the people, places and events that make my home state of Alabama a culturally rich and diverse place live, work, play. Everyday life and major events were part of my routine as a photojournalist for the largest newspaper and news site in the state.
My dad gave me 4 rolls of Kodachrome and loaned me a rangefinder camera for a scouting trip through the American southwest. A love and appreciation for telling stories with pictures was born.
Loretta Gordon, my high school English teacher and newspaper advisor encouraged me to sharpen my photographic skills by joining the Ramsay High newspaper staff as one of the "Vulcan View" photographers. I was fortunate to have Andy Russell at The University of Montevallo's take me under his wing helping me land an internship at The Birmingham News. Working beside seasoned professionals I traveled the state documenting the people, places and events that make me proud to call Alabama home.

Collegiate sports to executive offices all made up part of the dynamic daily routine involved in my 25 plus years of creating striking images for newsprint, magazine and speciality publications.

Going beyond a casual snapshot to discover what will make images important for future generations is where we thrive.

Volume photography takes a level of confidence and creative energy to make the most of the time each subject has in front of the camera. Born from an opportunity to provide a service for my hometown league has grown into thousands of youth and high school athletes photographed each year.
