There is something to be said about living in the midst of what inspires you.
The essence of my work is derived from the culmination of epic spaces... light... and the elements that are found within.
So when looking thru my body of work, it's understandable as to why I call Southwest Montana home.
It has always been my favorite place to shoot, so it made perfect sense when we decided to pull up our west coast roots and establish new ones here.
Assignments have taken me to many beautiful locations, which is the upside of being a location shooter.
I enjoy working throughout the country and my network of talented associates continue to expand year after year.
The creative path that I have chosen to travel has been never ending and I feel extremely fortunate whenever a project takes me around another bend.
If you find yourself connecting with my imagery and would like to stay up to date with my work, please feel free to connect.
I truly appreciate the consideration to be a part of your work and look forward to sharing the path with you in the near future.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Eric for over 20 years, on various photo and creative assignments that have taken us to many wonderful places throughout the western United States.
Eric's approach is thoughtful, soulful, artistic, and as our campaign work will attest, heroic.
He is a photographer who pushes his own boundaries, who challenges himself in the ways that only a true artist would, in order to capture something truly original and beyond expectations.
During our many shoots together, Eric has always captured whatever was originally scripted, envisioned and produced on the story board.
He has always performed these tasks with absolute conviction and professionalism.
Eric is also sensitive to the world opening up around him, where he always seems to capture something profoundly beautiful and intimate, moments that we never imagined, art directed or would have recognized had he not pointed them out.
He views things differently, feels things differently, and it makes all the difference in the world.
These sensibilities are what distinguish his work, and create a level of warmth and poetic-ness that you don't see everyday.
There are many reasons to engage Eric. He embraces the concept of giving more than receiving, and in that spirit, we are all successful.
Please don't hesitate to call me direct should you need more insight."
President, Paolucci Salling & Martin
"When I first saw Eric's work, it literally took my breath away.
His images capture magic in such a profoundly beautiful way, I knew I had to work with him.
I was thrilled when the opportunity arose to do so on a fairly significant brand shoot for a very important client.
His approachability, down-to-earth attitude and ability to handle anything thrown at him (client, weather, curious alligators...you name it) made shooting with him one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences in my career.
One image in particular of a lone bagpiper and a child that wandered into frame became our hero brand image and earned the highest praise I've ever heard from a noted DP: "I've never seen anyone actually capture someone listening...a truly amazing image"."
