Frank Jackson specializes in seeing the light. Whether it’s as a premiere corporate photographer for Transamerica, an internationally recognized fine art photographer or as the street photographer who always has at least one camera with him.
Frank’s unique vision has been distilled through the lens of his journey into a deceptively simple view showcasing light and shadow. His personality is much like his work. He’s someone who lives his life one day at a time. He lives his art, simple yet sophisticated and without pretense (even when wearing a beret). He carries his life with him in his Thinktank backpack as he rides around Hollywood on his Vespa and travels throughout Europe. He’s like an Eagle Scout who collects photography badges – always prepared. He’s likely to have a Leica M6 and a Panasonic Gx1 in his bag and there might even be a Hasselblad or a toy camera – you never know. He started carrying digital cameras to “proof” his film shots and then found himself choosing digital as his primary tool more often than he expected.
Join Frank on an adventure through the streets of Hollywood.

What to Bring:
- Bring a little courage. Be willing to take a small step outside your comfort zone. You be pleased by the results.
- We will be outside for a portion of the course. Please wear appropriate attire.
- Bring your camera (DSLR or Mirror-less) and a wide prime lens if you have one. (Most street photographers use a 28mm-50mm range lens.) Remember you want to keep your camera low-profile. Large zoom lenses attract attention and street photography isn't about zooming in on a far away subjects. Make sure your batteries are charged and you have plenty room for photo on your memory cards.
- You may also need to bring a few dollars for parking at Hollywood and Highland. You may be able to get validation depending where you eat lunch.
