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 degree 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 newspaper and as a volunteer member of the South by Southwest Photo crew.
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.
Given his many years of military service and growing up here in Central Texas, Eric is happy to be here telling the stories of the community he grew up in.
