Howdy, I'm Eric. I'm a photographer based in Los Angeles. I take pictures because I can freeze time, live in the moment, meet interesting people, and tell a story.
My background is in journalism and the law. I graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and worked at latimes.com during summers producing web content, editing photos, and writing articles for the LA Times. Then I changed course and went to law school at UC Berkeley (Boalt Hall). I have worked for more than a decade as a patent litigator. I came back to photography, which was a passion in my younger years, to get away from the darkness of litigation and find some light in the world.
I live in the hills of Northeast LA with my wife, Lauren, daughter, Hannah, and Brittany, Barley. Though I grew up a city boy, I love hiking, backpacking, hunting, and fishing.
