Since the age of 16, when he was legally allowed to drive, Erik’s passion for automobiles was prominent. Weekends were spent with friends, modifying vehicles. Anything from engine rebuilds to painting and sound systems.
Initially wanting to pursue a career in Film, Erik spent the majority of his high-school years shooting/editing videos for multiple assemblies, film competitions and local companies. From there, he enrolled in Film School in Vancouver, BC to further study the fundamentals of film production.
Out one day with the local car scene, Erik happened to have a cheap point-and-shoot camera in hand. One click of the shutter button, and a new passion for photography was born.
Since then, the vehicle purchases, rebuilds and modifications have continued. The pictures have as well.
Summer 2017, Erik decided to venture into the Calgary car scene and test the market for another Automotive Photographer. Seeing how his style is much different from others in the city, as well as across North America, he made the decision to transition careers in 2018.
