Not to be missed for photographers of all levels

"A day spent with Eric was one of the best experiences I have had on a holiday, and one of the best photography courses I have been on. Over a full day (from 7.30am pick up at my hotel to 4pm drop off) Eric took me to some lesser visited areas of the Angkor temple complex and showed me step by step how to look for better shots and take them in a more interesting and technically effective way. He quickly established my level of experience and tailored the day to expand what I could do - I particularly enjoyed being set some specific mini assignments which we could then talk about and see how to improve.
As well as being a great teacher Eric is good company and between locations and over coffee and lunch we had some really entertaining conversations about travel, music and football!
I cannot over recommend a day with Eric for anyone who is interested in stretching themselves as a photographer"

A small selection of series and collections taken over the last 30 years. From ‘On The Road’ to the latest one ’Color 2016-2018’. Also on the website are excerpts from the finished series 'The Hong Kong Monochromes' and 'Waterscapes/ Wetlands'. Most series are in black and white, the photographer’s favourite. Some recent collections are inspired by the works of the New Topographic Movement from the 70s. At the moment Eric is working on a new series about changing of the landscape titled BACKLAND...

This collection of landscape photographs were never used in those 25 years. After visiting a group
show of New Topographics Movement (The Dusseldorf School) in Amsterdam earlier this year and being inspired for quite a while by the works of American photographers Lewis Baltz, Robert Adams,
Henry Wessel, Stephen Shore. I re-scanned and re-selected the negatives I’ve been taken during
several roadtrips in the USA between 1993 and 1997. The main goal was to show emptiness, the
man-altered landscapes in some ways. The 70 black and white photographs come without captions
not to distract the images...
