I'm Franz Bato who runs Franz Bato Photography or franzdiary on Instagram. I'm a freelance photographer who loves to explore and capture memories.

I started photography back in 2012 as an event photographer, mostly party photos for my friends. I am a self taught photographer but I am very fortunate to have a few friends and mentors in Karratha where I lived for 12 years to help me. 


I have experience with commercial real estate photography, social photos for restaurants, festivals and other events. I am well traveled and I had the opportunity to work with aspiring models and photographers in Los Angeles.

I've always loved capturing little moments, another reason why i love doing family photos and one of my favourite is taking portraits!

I love working with other photographers as we inspire each other and create magic! I'm so fortunate to turn my hobby into a growing business.
