My name is Anthony "AJ" Franklin, and I am the CEO of FlyShots by Franklin, LLC (aka FLYSHOTS). I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, but currently reside in Miramar, FL, upon successfully finishing my law degree from the University of Kentucky. After being admitted to the Florida Bar, I decided to work full-time as a photographer and videographer, while providing legal services on a limited basis.
My journey as a photographer started at Nova Southeastern University back in 2017. There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV). As the verse states, I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, no matter where you are in life. I intended on going straight to law school right after undergrad, except the LSAT (Law Entrance Exam) stood in my way. Looking back now in 2021, I now see this roadblock as a blessing because God had other plans for me.
During my two "gap years" of my master's degree, I never lost sight of going to law school, so I continued to study. Little did I know that I would discover a hobby that fascinated my attention. I was so enthusiastic about becoming a better photographer that I sold my Xbox to purchase my first professional camera. Fast-forward four years later, I have my law degree. I run a full production company ranging from professional headshots to weddings, and video commercials while having the pleasure of flying all over the country for clients. God works in mysterious ways!
In short, I am passionate about my work as well as my client's satisfaction. My motto is "All About The Angle." Whether your event is big or small, outside or inside, you can expect every angle captured, even the most awkward ones. Please feel free to browse around and look at my portfolio. If you love the work I produce and would like to inquire about your next project, wedding, or portrait session, feel free to use my contact form on my website.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to working with you soon.
