Peter Franklyn Banks

Pete’s work is full of heart.

A versatile image maker and impeccable storyteller, Pete makes films and photographs that are unified by powerful emotion and intimate realism. Humanity is at the core of everything Pete is drawn to, often tackling tough topics with empathy whilst producing work that is visually striking, bursting with energy and on occasion quite amusing!

London born, Nottingham raised, Pete is a sport obsessed photography nerd with a midlands accent. 
He started his career in film as a runner in his early 20s, spending many years working various roles for some of the worlds most celebrated directors and production companies. 

He is now best known for directing sporting icons from Leo Messi, Harry Kane and Ronaldo to the World’s Strongest Men. His commercial work has been awarded at Cannes Lions, Kinsale and Creative Circle. 

Pete has also photographed musicians, artists and even royalty for various publications and brands and also created photographic artwork, including a uk no1 album cover for Island Records indie darlings The Lathums. 

In 2023 Pete wrote and directed a short film titled Nearly Never, which was awarded Best First Time Filmmaker at Bolton International Film Festival as well as Best Fiction Film, and Best Performance at the This is England Festival in Rouen
