Behind the Lens

Thank you for visiting my site.  My name is Frank Skeen and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in George, Western Cape, in the scenic Garden Route at the foot of the majestic Outeniqua Mountains.

Five years ago I used a DSLR camera for the first time after using "point-and-shoots" up to then.  I immediately fell in love with the art of photography. 

A few weeks later I joined DPC, headed by Fine Art Photographer Danie Bester.  Through DPC my love for photography grew and I learned all the skills involved. In 2015 I decided to sell my business and become a full time photographer.

I believe that photography is an art form and that it is a way of capturing a moment to last forever. And for this reason my biggest passion in photography is capturing people, the faces, the moments and the emotion.

altering life by holding it still”
