About Frank Vitale Photography

I'm a Massachusetts-based freelance writer and photographer who specializes in Nature, Travel, the Environment, Landscape and Coastal images and issues. I have travelled to Hong Kong and Palawan, Philippines where I explored Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong's famed Dragon's Back trail overlooking the island's spectacular coastline and Hong Kong market and street life. I've also visited Palawan's El Nido Eco-Resort on Miniloc Island while exploring nearby islands, snorkeling, hiking and seeing first hand the inhabitants of El Nido's preserved ecosystem. Recently I toured the Candian Maritimes exploring New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island and visited the Great Smoky Mountains and Shenandoah National Parks.
My wife and I have two sons and live in Sudbury, MA. I am retired from a major transportation consulting engineering firm in Boston. And, now I devote my time to travel, writing and photography.
As a freelance writer, I have had articles appear in the New York Times with a piece entitled "A Who's Who of the Tree World - A World of Trees at Home" about Long Island, New York's biggest and most historic trees. Also, based on several trips to the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine, I wrote about my family's experiences in "Canoeing the Allagash" which appeared in the Times Travel Section.
My photography equipment consists of Nikon D750) and D300 cameras. For  macro-photography I rely on a AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED and for long-range subjects I use a AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4D IF-ED, often assisted with a AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E II. For other nature, landscape, travel and nautical subjects I use a AF-S Nikkor 24-120 f/4G ED VR, AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VRII and a AF-S VR Zoom - Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED.
