Eric has worked for more than 25 years as a professional editorial and commercial photographer in the middle of America. His editorial clients include international wire services, national news outlets and local newspapers and magazine. His commercial client range from the Fortune 500 to the "Mom and Pop" around the corner.

While Eric no longer markets himself as a wedding photographer, he worked for 15+ years in the industry and is a former WPJA POY (2003).

Eric has always been on the forefront of change in the industry from the earliest days of wedding photojournalism, to the digital photography revolution, and most recently with the move to mirrorless technologies. Five years ago he was drawn to Fujifilm cameras and has been a happy convert and now shoots 100% of his images, including his sports work, with that camera system.
