Frank Townsley is an avid naturalist and traveler who loves capturing nature’s treasures in both his photography and his painting. Immersing himself in the great outdoors has almost been a passion since childhood. He was raised in North Vancouver in the shadows of the North Shore Mountains. His photography has graced the covers of several publications, and the cover image of this book, British Columbia: Graced by Nature's Palette, was chosen by the Pacific Parklands Foundation, printed on the cover of tens of thousands of flyers. He teaches both photography and painting throughout the Lower Mainland. Find Frank's book in the library catalogue
