Erik is a landscape photographer based in Estes Park, Colorado. For over a decade he has made his living by finding and photographing unique views of our amazingly beautiful world. This pursuit often leads him into remote locations in search of the perfect image. You’ll typically find him on the trail with a large backpack full of camera gear during the night hours as he hurries to or from some beautiful backcountry lake.
Erik is primarily known for his work in Rocky Mountain National Park, but he also has growing collections from the Desert Southwest, the Pacific Northwest and the United Kingdom. His collection of photos from Rocky Mountain National Park is second to none and in honor of Rocky’s 100th anniversary he is releasing a 224 page hardcover coffee table book to celebrate this incredible Park’s stunning landscape.
