After retiring from professional careers in technology and music production, Erick Johnson turned to one of his long lost loves, photography, as a hobby. He first learned skills as the photo editor of his high school newspaper, and practiced as a wedding photographer for several years after graduating. He put down the film camera for more than 20 years while working in technology. After being diagnosed with a debilitating brain tumor, he rediscovered photography as an exhilarating creative outlet. He left the old days of film behind and moved into the 21st century, now shooting fully digital. Erick takes every opportunity to go out into nature and capture the essence, mood and lighting of the location. By sharing with you this “hobby gone wild” his hope is that you will pause a few moments to allow your own imagination to expand – running wild – through the images produced by Erick Johnson.
Now, after spending more than 3 years in the wild of the desert, Erick has returned to wedding and event photography. He has brought his skills from those past days of film forward to bring a unique, special and fun loving approach to capturing the moments that are most important in peoples lives.
