DSCN6786 ep

Photo by Terry Raininger.

I have been to india many times since the 60s
Last visit was in 2011/12 with a tour of Rajasthan and Kerala

Born and lived all my life in Toronto, Canada
Studied sitar, vocal and sarangi for many years
Never got any good at any of them : )

but I have a lifelong love and passion for Hindustani music

Flickr group of Hindustani Musicians

Home of the Toronto Gharana

Looking for the insight possible in photographs of the "unguarded moment" I mostly take candid shots, often at events that include nude or partly nude participants. If you see a photo of yourself or a friend that you prefer not to be public, please let me know and i will remove it immediately. My intention is to make strong images but never at the expense of the anyone's comfort or dignity.

Professionally I am a graphic designer and have my own business.
I work mostly in the Arts/non-profit sector.

    "Eric's photography is endlessly fascinating, and has become a real inspiration to me in my own work. How can one best describe his images? Exotic, evocative, moody, surreal.......each moment captured is handled with sensitivity and a deep awareness and appreciation of its subject, its beauty, and its essence. These are timeless images. Thank you , Eric!"

    "Eric's work is a potpourri of tours of the most interesting stuff the world has to offer! Some of his pics remind me of Norman Rockwell's art- if it had managed to be totally fascinating! LOL! My only regret is that I don't have time to visit this man's photostream on a daily basis! Astonishing skill and interesting technique and treatments. I travel vicariously thanks to this man!"

    "Deeply observant photographs, crafty technique and timely, well written captions define Eric's eclectic work. He's a giving person, committed to perfection, beauty, and a harmonious life style. Having never met Eric, for me to have this vision of his personality shows how well he conveys his feelings through art, and prose. Viewing his works will convey that to any other (sane) person as well."

    "I return to Erics pages for his unique perspective of his world. I've learned a lot from studying his use of composition and effects. I've also been allowed to view a part of the world as i never have. Thanks!!"

    "Eric is an excellent participant of Flickr; he is a very able photographer. His pictures reveal beauty and poetry and capture both people and landscapes in a perfect form. Looking at his albums is like taking a trip to the actual places where the pictures were taken."
