1/5 • INVISION

"While on a walk my brother recalls me age 8, picking up a leaf, holding it up as I began to place it in between my eye and the sun, closing one eye, and then the other, blinking back and forth. Mesmerized, taken by how placing it up to the sun I was able to see through the leaf enhancing the treelike patterns that were with-in the leaf itself.  Even as a youngster before a camera was introduced I felt a unique way of how I invisioned my surroundings."

2/5 • MECHANICALLY ENGINEERED

My first photograph, a selfie! On a Canon Ft 35mm film camera, a self timer, an on camera flash and this stylish folded black plastic backdrop. Ha!  It was 1979 when I went racing dirt bikes for the first time. I love riding motorcycles.  I soon took notice that I was equally excited to snap pictures in between my racing. Always very eager to get the film to the lab for developing. I was hooked."

3/5 • INNOVATIVE

"Being a son of a mechanical engineer I remember having an analytical eye on the mechanics of things.  While In college studying commercial photography I was able to continue honing in my creative eye and the technical aspects of photography.  I was to exchange an art history class with for an independent photo study of the world famous photographer Ansel Adams while putting strict focus on his specialized technique, The Zone System.  Truly inspired by this innovative process of working with large format film, detailed exposure indexing, scientific-mathematical film development and specialized printing techniques. © Ansel Adams biography photos shown

4/5 • THE LIGHT

"Automotive photography is filled with highly technical and artistic problems and solutions. It is essential to have a strong crew with good worth ethic as unexpected problems always arise on even the most well planned shoot.  I learned the importance of flexible problem solving and an understanding of complex lighting circumstances working as an assistant and associate photographer in the 90's with one of the great masters in automotive photography, David LeBon."

5/5 • CREATE

"Invision and create as my minds eye sees applying innovative techniques.  A career so enjoyable that I can hardly call it a job."

WORKING WITH ERIC

"The only attitude Eric brings to set is in his work"

"New York Times Best Sellers List, what else ya want me to say"

"Eric is a true master of his craft. I always turn to him when the project I'm working on requires an extra spark of creativity. He's truly passionate about his work and brings his "A game" to every assignment."

"Eric will dangle from a helicopter skimming mere feet from the desert floor. He will hang out of a van with his elbows skimming inches above the pavement to get the shot"

"Eric is not satisfied to rest on his laurels. He is always pushing, exploring and finding fresh ways to look at the world"
