Francis has worked closely with Apple, HP (printers), Hasselblad (cameras & digital backs), Sandisk & CaptureOne software and has toured the world giving talks and demonstrations as a 'digital evangelist'.
Francis celebrated the first five years of his work with an exhibition titled 'The Accidental Photographer' in 2007 @ Calumet's NY flagship gallery.
Francis' work has appeared in, and on the cover of, numerous magazines worldwide including Elle, Entertainment Weekly, Time, GQ, Esquire, Oprah, Hamptons, Gotham, Vegas, Ocean Drive, Zink, Red Book and Parade.
Francis has regularly appeared as either guest or resident photographer on Scandinavia's, Sweden's, Norway's and Denmark's Next Top Model TV shows.
He's also been guest photographer on TLC's Covershot.
Francis' first book features the photographs he took in Africa and France of the French Foreign Legion.
