An Arizona native, desert lover and avid traveler, "Bald Eric" has captivated by photography throughout his life. Inspired by his parents carrying cameras everywhere they went his childhood was filled with framed memories and photo albums. Growing up his parents displayed their extensive antique camera collection, fueling his interest and curiositiy. Learning respect for, and the importance of, capturing the moment, and preserving the past through generations of family images, was instilled early an age.
For as long as he can remember his lifelong globe-trotting relative has shared visually stunning slideshows with comically informative narrative. That sense of wander was perpetuated by ever-present images and keepsakes of his parents' travels through Europe, the U.S. and south of the border. Family vacations throughout the Southwest to rugged and historical destinations cemented the desire to capture faces and places.
