Our Resident Renaissance Man
A papa to two children and husband to Kim, Francisco is a natural born story-teller, comedian and warm-hearted bear of a man.
Our co-owner and CEO, Francisco, has spent a number of years behind the camera and moved into a support role in 2011. In fact in 1997, he trained Kim with everything he knew about photography and he knew a lot. Teaching at PCC photography and sculpture at the time, Kim got some personal and private lessons. In return, she shared her ideas of capturing the emotional side of people in photography. The two are a magical pair in business together. Now married over 25 years they continue to explore the the world and try new ventures side by side.
