R3MAF derives its unique name from the famous 'rule of thirds' principle of composition and the initials of founder Mark Antony Franklin.  Launched in 2001 as a means to display a personal body of diversified photographic work, and original artwork, it is now one of the most popular websites of its kind ...consistently achieving Top 10/20 status with many of the Internet's leading search engines, including Google.

The current website continues to display an ever evolving collection of wide ranging imagery that reaches back over two decades and covers many topics and fields of human endeavor shot on location in over 70 countries - using 35mm/medium format film (scanned on high resolution Nikon Coolscans) and full-frame DSLR cameras.

Formerly a CPS Canon Professional, and now NPS Nikon Professional, all work is now exclusively shot on Nikon full-frame DSLR cameras and Nikkor, Zeiss and adapted Leica R lenses.  For picture editors (and visitors) wishing to know what type of software, camera body and lenses were utilised for any given shoot, a comprehensive list of all hardware and software presently used is itemized on a specification page.

A member and contributor to Alamy, Corbis and Getty Images, many of the photographs on this website have been published and/or exhibited in galleries throughout the world.  Bespoke print orders to customer specification can be placed directly by contacting Victoria Salveson - whilst links to our comprehensive rights-managed download facilities at Franklin Images will be added shortly.
