Born and raised in Saunderstown, Rhode Island, Frank Mastrobuono is a South County native and truly a product of it. Taking a not-quite-traditional approach to higher education, he began after high school at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and graduated cum laude from the University of Rhode Island with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Management. In between, he attended the American University of Rome in Rome, Italy during a semester abroad, and worked as a lifeguard for the State of Rhode Island.
Frank took a keen interest to photography at an early age, and has not since been able to put down a camera. Much of his initial curiosity into the field began with nature photography. In addition to for hire, Frank has recently worked as freelance photographer for the Narragansett Times. He also has broadened his résumé by Volunteering as an EMT, and currently works conducting research as an environmental consultant.
