Frank Angeletti has Photographed and Creative Directed some of the most deliciously memorable Food and Drink Advertising, Marketing Campaigns and Cookbooks in the current gastro scene.
Frank was born in Madagascar and reared in Rangoon. No, that’s not right. Frank was raised in the jungle with the help of Baloo the Bear and Bagheera the Panther. No, that’s just a lie. Frank Angeletti was born in Chicago and attended public school. After graduating from Loyola University, Frank relocated to New York City where his creative prowess ignited.
Says Angeletti, “I kissed the folks goodbye, got on a Trailways bus and headed for the big bad apple ...’cause I wanted to be a Rockette. I had 87 dollars in my pocket and seven years of tap lessons.”. Ahem.
Frank began his career in Advertising and Photography in NYC at The Village Voice. He financed his tenure in NYC with a series of odd jobs: Front Waiter at Gotham, General Manager at Cafe Un Deus Trois (entertaining Liza Minnelli, Meryl Streep, and Sting on a nightly basis) and Bartender at NYC’s notorious leather bar, The New York Eagle.
He honed his Artistic and Photography chops at the agencies Leo Burnett and Element 79, where he designed and directed Digital and Print Advertising for several luxury clients including Celebrity Cruises, Jaguar Cars, W Hotels, and Nestle Purina.
In 2007, Time Out NY Magazine hailed his work as “Eye-Blazing, Ear-Popping, Crotch-Pounding Photography” and listed Angeletti among “20 New York City Artists to Keep Your Eyes On”.
Throughout his career, his Photography and Creative Direction has graced the pages of GQ, Men’s Health, NY Magazine, Instinct, OUT, Advocate Magazine, Cooking Light, Travel and Leisure, and Food & Wine Magazine. Frank Angeletti is a two time CLIO Award Nominee for his culinary design work with Celebrity Cruises and Jenn-Air.
Frank can grow facial hair on a dime, cook a Wild Mushroom and Tarragon Béchamel Lasagna that’ll make ya weep, and quote Lin-Manuel Miranda. He is also a two time CLIO Award Nominee for his culinary design work with Celebrity Cruises and Jenn-Air.
