Karl Erickson's Photography
It's true... I enjoy snapping photos--as you have perhaps noticed! Above is a selection of a few of my favorites. (Some of the featured photos have been selected less for their artistic quality, and more because they're personal favorites.) I don't mind you using these photos for personal reasons, but please don't utilize them for any business purposes without my written permission. If you use them online--even just a personal blog--please be sure to attribute them to yours truly.
Before June 2012, I relied upon either a Canon SX-110 IS or Canon PowerShot A620. Beginning June 2012, I upgraded to a Canon EOS Rebel T3--as well as a more recently acquired Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens from Germany.
(I strongly recommend the Canon EOS Rebel series, if you're thinking of leaving point and click cameras behind.)
This summer I have started focusing upon the creation of what I call electronic coffee table books for Kindle readers. The idea was simple: produce high quality photographic collections in e-book format, highlighting unpretentious photographs of nature and unique spots from around the Pacific Northwest. I invite you to explore my first book in this series entitled Oregon, My Oregon, A Photographic Journey (The Wallowas). The next planned book, which should be released by the fall, will feature a collection of high quality images from Oregon's Mt. Jefferson wilderness. The next book will likely be a bit smaller in order that the photos can be higher resolution. I'm aiming for a price point of less than five dollars.
Please note that a couple of the photos above were taken by Kimberly Erickson. Also, I hope you can drop by my new and ever-growing portfolio page on BigStock Photo!
