Fran flynn

photographer & designer


I’m a lifelong creative, passionate about producing beautiful images that communicate feeling, emotion and deliciousness. 

My obsession is teaching others how to achieve the satisfaction of making what they see with their eyes look even better in an image.

I’m a qualified and practising commercial photographer, graphic designer, illustrator and cook book producer with a lot of experience. (and I’m not keen to add up exactly how many years!) You can see my commercial work here>

Born and bred in Ireland, I meandered my way to Australia around the turn of the millennium, where I met my Chilean love David, who is a very passionate wine expert. We are very lucky to have a beautiful boy together.

I love enjoying the amazing outdoor beach-side environment that I am so privileged to live beside. Yoga keeps me fit and balanced... and being with my family makes me truly happy.

David and I published a multi-international award winning cook book, ‘PAIRED - Champagne & Sparkling Wine (The food & wine matching cook book for everyone)'. You can read more about it here>, and I create cook books for commercial clients also (you can see some here>).

I teach in-person photography workshops for Le Cordon Bleu Australia-wide (you can view upcoming dates here>) and I previously taught short courses in photography and also graphic design for the SAE Institute Australia at their Byron Bay campus. Teaching is hugely rewarding for me. There's nothing greater for me than seeing someone feel inspired and filled with a sense of achievement from their own efforts that I have facilitated.

Writing books and creating online courses offers the opportunity to share my knowledge to a much wider audience and I love having students in far-flung exotic locations. I can't wait to help you to achieve your creative goals too.
