About

I am a freelance photographer based in the Hudson Valley region of New York State with over 15 years of experience of creating unique and creative images.

For me photography is an art form not a technical approach to a problem. I have had my photographs in local galleries, published in local magazines such as Ulster Magazine and Orange Magazine, Hudson Valley Magazine as well as in local newspapers including the Times Herald-Record, Kingston Freeman, Poughkeepsie Journal and nationally in The Huffington Post, the New York Daily News, the Washington Post, Miami Herald, Daily Mail in London, Seattle Times, Las Vegas Sun, US News and World Report, Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Chronicle, Newsday, The Australian and The Independent in Ireland.

Erik is one great photographer! We had to plan a wedding in five weeks and he was extremely accommodating. Very easy to work with, Love the fact that he likes the natural-look and tries his best to take the most real looking shots which really capture the moment. He's very laid back, and very focused! You will not be disappointed with the way your photos come out I can promise you that!! SO pleased with his work!!!! More...

We had to throw a wedding togerher in five weeks time because my daughter's fiance is in the Marine Corps. and so he has certain time constraints that we had to be able to work with in order to pull this wedding off! . We had our wedding at the powelton in newburgh in the chilly month of december. Erik did an amazing job on capturing special moments of the day! Never felt like he was intruding on our time at the wedding and he took amazing photos! Within 48 hours we had preliminary best shot photos.. and i have to say they came out beautiful!! Better than we ever imagined! Erik really added something special to the wedding with his own style of photography and we now have many memorable moments in time captured on film because of him! Would recommend him over and over again! Thanks erik! More...

Eric photographed our wedding for us. It was a last minute decision to have a photographer and he made himself available. I knew Eric was a great photographer as I have seen a lot of his work, but was still in awe of the level of professionalism during the ceremony and the reception, most of the time we didn't even know he was there. We were beyond shocked when we saw some of the pictures he captured and every picture was beautiful. It was so much fun looking through the pictures. We didn't even tell him what we wanted or expected, he just some how did it and got it all. Erik we love, love, love what you did for us. More...

Erik has done 2 photo shoots for us at our businesses. Both times the pictures came out great. His turn around time was quick as well. Erik has excellent communication leading up to the shoots. He was on time and efficient. Highly recommended, and we will use Erik again in the future! More...

Erik photographed our Saint Patrick’s Day wedding! He captured all the moments we wanted to savor from before the ceremony until the end of the reception. He was great and easy to work with. We continue to look at our photos to relive the day and are able to recap on special moments thanks to his beautiful work. More...

All I can say is WOW. Erik photographed my wedding, and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Everything from initial contact to execution was absolutely perfect. He responds to emails very fast, and sent us our edited photos within 4 weeks of the wedding. I'm so happy we decided to move forward with him, and would recommend him to everyone! More...

I was so happy with my wedding pictures! He was super easy going: took suggestions and gave suggestions without being pushy. I heard horror stories of photographers bossing around brides/grooms and Erik was NOT like that at all. Best of all, he made a potentially bad setting (torrential down pour) and made it look beautiful. Super lucky! More...

Thank you so much for your outstanding job in taking my son’s graduation pictures. You captured him perfectly and your lighting technique is amazing. Now it will be extremely hard to choose which pictures we will use for enlargements. Thanks again, I will pass your name one to anyone in need of a photographer. More...

Erik is a consummate professional and outstanding photographer. He snapped our August wedding, which encompassed three venues and two homes over an eight-hour period, and didn't miss a beat. He nailed the big spots, took great formals and, most importantly, captured those awesome spontaneous moments that make a wedding personally perfect. When Erik met with us, he noted that his goal was to document the day without intruding, be a fly on the wall, so to speak. He did exactly that.

And his photos are terrific. Erik sent us an immense amount of digital proofs along the way, allowing us to quickly share with family and friends who didn't attend the wedding. And he edited anything we needed, handing us our discs promptly. The shots are beautiful. He has a strong eye and is a master of manipulating light. Our batch of finals includes a handful of photos we instantly framed and hung.

Erik met with us at the beginning of the process, then checked in as we neared the wedding. I made final adjustments with him just before the weekend, and he was prompt and prepared for his shift. Our guests who had a moment with him loved him. We did, too.

Highest recommendation for wedding and event photography.

Erik has an amazing talent in capturing people at their best. He played with different ideas and made any scene work in a short period of time. Each of his photo is captivating with full visual effect that tells a story. Not all photographers are capable of doing that. But, Erik can. The beautiful photos he took of me can be seen in Oct/Nov issue of Orange Magazine. More...

Erik came to my house to take pictures of my 1 year old little boy. Erik had patience and did a great job following the baby around and dealing with a very tired baby. Erik used both artificial and natural lighting to get amazing photographs. I would use Erik again in a heartbeat to do family photography and was very pleased with his every aspect of the experience. From the way the pictures came out you would have thought he had a child very willing to pose and cooperate. Erik did a fantastic job!! :) More...

Erik came to my mother's home several days before Christmas to do a photo shoot and the photos were fantastic! There wasn't one we didn't like. Whatever poses we suggested, he was up for - giving us free reign to be as silly or as serious as we wanted to be. He was very patient and willing - he even delivered before Christmas! His work is outstanding and he has been dubbed our family photographer. More...

I have to say that I was very happy with Erik. He came to my home and took pictures of my big family. I know how hard it is to take pictures of five kids including an infant and toddler but Erik did a wonderful job. Especially he was so patient and understanding with my 2 year old. He did so many different poses and I loved them all. Our family portrait came out beautiful. Not only was I happy with the quality of the pictures but the service. I had my pictures in less than a week. Erik did an outstanding job and I am looking forward to more future photo shoots with him. More...
