Eric is celebrating his 34th year as a professional photographer in 2022 and his 40th with a camera in his hands. As a portraitist, Eric’s made photography his life’s passion and loves to share what he’s learned with others in search of those “aha” moments in photography. For the last 13 years he’s been working with Canon teaching seminars on photography and how to get the most from your gear. Admittedly, early in his teaching career with Canon, Eric had to get a better understanding of how people learn in order for his students to reach their full potential. His teaching style is very relaxed and finds his students retain more information from this type of atmosphere. He understands real world photographic situations and how to handle them, but more importantly, teaches YOU how to deal with them. Eric continues his quest for photographic knowledge every single day, which keeps him humble in the realization that you never stop learning.
Eric is a Technical Advisor and Instructor at Canon USA supporting a range of educational projects concentrating on live educational programming research and development.
