Hi, I'm Erik.
I look forward to learning more about you but in the meantime, here is a little about me.
This is such a cliché origin story. I wish I could say a radioactive spider dropped onto my hand and poof I loved photography but...we all come by our superpowers and our passions in different ways. It happened to me in a dark room in High School. I watched one of my very own photographs slowly develop in a tray. I had been an aspiring artist but until that moment I had no idea what medium I wanted to pursue. The moment before that picture developed...it was a tattoo artist.
After that I pursued a career in photojournalism for 25 years. I worked all over the great state of Michigan. I watched Grand Rapids Grow into a city, Witnessed the destruction of the car industry in Flint, and became fascinated with NASCAR in Jackson. I found a new passion in those years, Storytelling.
Now, I am able to use both my passions, photography and storytelling, to document the special days in peoples lives.
I love cooking for my partner Ben whom I love dearly.
I play, watch, and photograph sports any chance I can get.
I enjoy a lazy Sunday of playing video games.
I cannot pass up an opportunity to check out a new brewery or try a unique concoction of beer.
I have broken every finger I possess playing basketball. Even a few I did not possess.
I have gone by the nickname "Doc"
I travel. I inherited the wanderlust bug from my mother.
