Eric is an Austin and San Antonio photographer with a focus on lifestyle, food & drink, agriculture, and brand-storytelling.

EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL. And being a storyteller at heart, Eric has an eye for crafting visual narratives with authenticity, emotion, and a sense of place.

Along side his distinctive food, beverage, and lifestyle work, Eric is adept at capturing the essentials of a well-rounded travel or brand story such as portraiture, interiors, and landscape photography. And with an affinity for working on location, he's as comfortable photographing cowboys at dawn on a Texas ranch or donning a wetsuit to capture commercial fishery action, as he is shooting beautifully plated food in an upscale restaurant. Additionally, his 20+ year background in branding, graphic design and web development help him visualize the end result of a photoshoot, as well as develop the story flow and shot list.

Eric is based in the Texas Hill Country, near Austin and San Antonio and is available for travel across the state and beyond.
