About the Artist:
Eric is a fine art landscape and commercial photographer from Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He has spent the last few years actively pursuing the art of photography throughout most of New England, but is especially drawn to locations in his home state of NH. As a life-long resident, this gives a unique perspective on some of the more popular landmarks, and also some of those that can only be found off the beaten path.
Eric has no formal training in photography, but rather allows nature to be the teacher and classroom. Studying through trial-and-error, he subscribes to the philosophy that each day spent shooting in the field is an opportunity to discover something new about how we view the world. Through the years Eric has learned to approach each scene with an open mind, and allow the landscape to dictate the shot rather than trying to force something out of it. This way of thinking often results in a sort of Zen feeling and the perfect time to click the shutter becomes easily apparent as one learns a greater respect for the subject matter at hand.
His technique and style is ever changing, but a common theme throughout involves capturing the interplay of natural light with the environment. This often means shooting in the early morning or late evening when the light is best. As with many classically trained landscape photographers, you will see that Eric tends to avoid shooting people, but is not afraid to capture the interaction of man with nature through such things as boats, bridges and lighthouses.
Eric always enjoys meeting new fans so feel free to contact him here to introduce yourself, ask a question, or just talk about photography!
