Eric Von Franklin is a Central Texan, born and raised. He grew up in Killeen, Texas, and after graduating from Ellison High School, he eventually joined the United States Army.
While serving as a chemical operations specialist in the Army, he developed a passion for taking pictures and telling stories.
He started his education at Central Texas College, earning an associate’s degree in General Studies before moving to Liberty University and obtaining his Bachelor of Science in Strategic Communications: Social Media Management.
Eric comes to KWTX after working as a former news photographer at a Central Texas newspaper and as a volunteer member of the South by Southwest Photo crew.
He is thrilled to be back in Texas and to be able to tell his hometown’s stories.
When he’s not working, Eric enjoys anything related to photography, especially the weird and unusual. He considers himself a "foodie" and always willing to try something new. If you have a great story idea, email Eric at Eric.Franklin@kwtx.com or “like” his Facebook page at Eric Franklin KWTX.
