His commissioned photography includes architectural, interior, commercial, restaurant and retail photography and has appeared in many publications and publishing outlets.

Erik was born in Richmond, VA. After receiving a BFA in Photography at The Rochester Institute of Technology, he was hired as a staff photographer by US News and World Report magazine. He covered national and international events, including political campaigns, conflicts, travel stories, and working in the White House covering President Clinton. Erik's love of photography spread to architectural photography. There he can explore the elements that attracted him to photography originally: the interplay of light, form, composition, moment.
