Time And Place
When we spoke with Eric he was finishing up his studies at Southeast Community
College in Lincoln, Nebraska, in anticipation of attending fall classes
in the photography program at Sam Houston State.
Originally a business student, Eric says, "It took me a long time,
but with photography I've found what I want to do." His goal
is a career as a nature photographer for magazines and nature journals.
"When I go out to shoot, I just let everything go," Eric says.
"I often don't even have a specific place I'm going
to photograph. I'll kind of wander and let things happen. When I
look for something specific, more than likely I'm not going to get
that shot. I'll get home and the shot I totally didn't expect
is the one that's perfect. The best things seem to happen when you
least expect them.
