Frank Briden Fine Art Landscape Photography

 As a person who was born, raised, educated and life long resident of New Jersey, I have a deep passion for landscape and architectural photography. My love for photography began in the 1970’s during which time I experimented with various types of film and camera format size. I have studied the techniques and composition approaches of many of the great landscape photographers and they inspire me for continued improvement and new ideas.  I have traveled to many of the our National Parks, other scenic landscapes and various sites across the US to photograph these wonderful displays of nature and architecture as well as extensively photographing in NJ and NYC.  My work has also recently expanded into Europe.
