Eric W. Pohl is a freelance photographer specializing in Texas travel, architecture, food and outdoors. From the natural landscape to the urban landscape, he harnesses the perfect light and his unique perspective to tell a visual story. It's through his vibrant images that he shares his passion for the spirited history, culture, food and places of the Lone Star State.

Born and raised in Texas, Eric W. Pohl has always been drawn to the rich heritage and natural beauty of rural Texas. Eric spends his time bringing his motto to life: “it’s all about the journey, so always take the scenic route!” His quest to explore the backroads of Texas takes him everywhere from sweeping hilltop vistas and tranquil canyons to historic small-town dance halls and smoky mom-and-pop barbecue joints. That’s the real Texas to Eric—those extraordinary places off the beaten path—and his passion to capture and share his visual journey springs from his love of the Lone Star State.

Eric is also a travel writer and author of Houston, Texas: A Photographic Portrait (Twin Lights Publishers, 2014) and Texas Hill Country: A Scenic Journey (Schiffer Publishing, 2017).

Originally from Houston, Eric now makes his home in the Texas Hill Country, west of Austin. When not behind the lens or scouting a location, he can be found hiking, grilling and enjoying life with his wife, their son and three crazy dogs. He's also an outdoor enthusiast, a lover of barbecue and a Texas history junkie.
