Tasteful assignment photography with an eye for results.

Nothing Less Than Authentic

You want images that represent your world, not plastic, fake, overly-fussy productions that scream “I’m selling something.” Eric shoots from the heart. What are you thinking, where are you going, what’s your story? Eric will help you tell it honestly and with emotion.


Expressive, abstract, yet never far from the truth, Eric’s photographs elevate the ordinary to the unique and one-of-a-kind.


Find the unusual in everyday objects. Or look for something completely different. Eric will find the perfect frame for your ideas and capture it.


Tasty. Whatever you need to show, from your creative endeavors to your philosophy, Eric can capture the essence of your communications.


Eric shoots portraits that get behind a subject to illuminate personality and feelings, objects that seem to stand outside the ordinary, and places that evoke emotional responses.


From tightly-controlled studio environments to locations inside or out, Eric produces dramatic images that take viewers directly into the mind of the client. Do you need to capture a moment, express a wish, motivate with a  flash of insight? Ask Eric to shoot for you.

What is your background?

Eric grew up in a photographic family. His father, an advertising agency executive, had professional equipment and lent it to Eric as far back as grade school. In high school, Eric was a contributing photographer for newspaper and yearbook offices. In college, Eric completed a two-year commercial photography program and assisted in several name studios in Los Angeles. He continues to practice his craft whenever possible for professional clients and personal growth.

Why do you do it?

Photography is an opportunity to frame the world in a personal way, allowing the photographer to impose his vision and alter reality in the time it takes to capture a scene. Eric shoots to capture the ephemeral, record the timeless, and document the wonders of the world. He finds the space and throws away the insubstantial and unnecessary, retaining only the essence of an image.
