Photographer Spotlight: Frank Antonio

Frank Antonio OMP Member #89387 creates unique images that are edgy and sexy. Frank’s goal is to “Give any model their hottest images on their ports”.

The New York resident is also a big sports fanatic; he loves baseball, bodybuilding, and since he’s from the Bronx, handball. He also describes himself as “easygoing, humble, fun, and a perfectionist.”

His credits include the back cover of Fabolous’ album as well as several magazines, he’s also shot celebrities such as Jamie Foxx and Fat Joe. Frank could not have imagined that auto tires would lead to a career as a professional photographer. He started getting interested in photography a few years ago while he was running his wheel company, Donz Wheelz Corp.

“I used to hire photographers and graphic designers. They were very talented but couldn’t give me what I wanted. So I decided to learn Photoshop. I learned one trick a day for about a year and finally felt I had mastered the editing system. Then I decided to shoot the models I hired for my car shows and edit my own photos.”

He ended up on OneModelPlace.com via an equally fortuitous route. “I was introduced to OMP by a model I knew. Then I decided to put up my own portfolio. I received requests for my services and models wanting my rates. I had no clue what to say. From there I’ve worked with many beautiful models and developed a business that has been successful and — more importantly — enjoyable to me. But without OMP, I wouldn’t be anywhere as successful as I am today, Plain and simple. I would not have a career in photography without OMP.”

Frank currently splits his time between his two studios, in New York City and South Florida. His advice for aspiring photographers comes from his own experiences. “Join OMP. Learn Photoshop. Learn lighting. And be hungry. You always have to outdo your last photo to get better.”
