I started my photographic journey as a teenager. My mother was an aspiring photographer and through raising two kids and working two jobs she managed to complete a course of study through the New York Institute of Photography. I started to see these amazing things she was doing with a camera and I became passionate about doing the same. She taught me how to use my first 35mm film camera, a Canon AE-1, and turned me loose.
Since then, I have been a student of photography for over 30 years. First under my mother’s tutelage, then on to my high school yearbook adviser. After high school, I attended Northwest Community College in Powell, Wyo. At the time it was one of the premier two-year college programs for photography in the Nation. Fast forward through the years of shooting film to my first digital camera in 2011, and I am still learning. The world of photography is ever-changing in technology but the premise of what I do has remained the same for over 150 years.
Currently, I am a part-time professional freelancer and owner of Frank Shedden Photography. My primary focus is on Western Cowboy Heritage, Event Photography, Action Photography, and Portraiture. Memories fade and “times” change. What was yesterday, is not today and tomorrow will be something else entirely. There lies the passion behind my efforts in photography - to capture those fleeting moments in time that come this way only once.
