“I’ve been doing this for 15 years. I’m from Chippewa, but I travel all over the world. My commercial work is mostly weddings and stuff; I do a lot in Pittsburgh. Most people know me as ‘the guy with the hat.’ My work’s been on magazines. I do a lot of charity stuff. And a lot of hybrid work — video and stills. For weddings, I tell people ‘I take your 12 hours and put them into 12 minutes.’
I’m doing long exposures [of the sunset and the Beaver County Boom fireworks] right now, like 3-4 minutes. It happens so quick, and you don’t have a lot of chance to get it right.”[Frank Kendralla, of Kendralla Photography sets up to capture the 2016 Beaver County Boom fireworks at the riverfront in Monaca].
