Fran Flynn Photography & Design started life as 'Frangipani Creative' in Byron Bay in 2003, as a boutique full-service creative agency. As an accomplished commercial photographer and graphic designer Fran Flynn set out to share quality creative with businesses throughout the region and beyond.

After 14 successful years of business, the beginning of 2017 heralded a shift in direction - and a change of name - with a consolidation of services to focus on what we do best.

High quality commercial photography is our greatest passion specialising in; food industry; small products; lifestyle brands; and the people, places and products of business.

Graphic design wasn’t abandoned completely however. We still take on a few special high-end book design projects per year, i.e. cook books and coffee table books.


Born and raised in Ireland, it was obvious from an early age that Fran would likely work in the creative industries - it was just a matter of which genre. Growing up she dabbled in everything from painting, pottery, leather work, and jewellery-making. But a consuming interest in animation led to a Certificate in Animation Studies at college. Computers were the draw-card into graphic design and a qualification in Graphic Communication and Design with a Major in Photography set the foundation for the multiple skills that she now brings to the table.

After working her way up through Irish design studios - plus several stints working in London and Sydney to finance international travel - her wanderings culminated in a more long-term base of Australia. 

The corporate sector in Sydney added a Certificate in Business and Marketing Strategy to her qualifications and completed the hard slog to the status of Creative Director, before a hiatus to the country-side of Byron Bay resulted in the establishment of her own studio.


Fran and her business have collected many awards over the years for photography, graphic design and the recipe book that she published with her husband David, 'PAIRED-Champagne & Sparkling Wine' - including from; the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers), CREATE Awards, Fairfax 'Shoot the Chef', Gourmand Book Awards and Writers Digest Book Awards.
