Thanks for visiting my website!
My name is Justin Franz and I’m a writer and photographer based in Whitefish, Montana. My words and photos have been seen in publications like the New York Times, Washington Post, Travel + Leisure and Atlas Obscura.
I have been a newspaper reporter and magazine correspondent for a decade, writing about everything from government to the environment, but my favorite stories are about people and places. Especially stories about how people travel from place to place and what they find when they arrive.
Take a look around at some of my work and if you like what you see don’t hesitate to reach out.
