Raised near the gentle countryside of Quebec City, Eric's love for the great outdoors developed at an early age. At 17, he was given his first film camera before an exciting trip across Canada. By the time he reached the Banff in Alberta, Eric was in love with the country and was interpreting its land through a lens. In 1999 Eric chose the Canmore/Banff area as his permanent home, working on events at the Banff Springs Hotel. In 2006, Eric further honed his photographic skills with a Certificate in Photography from SAIT (Southern Alberta Institute of Technology). In 2007 he celebrated his own marriage to Leann and together they have built their home with Madie - their beloved retriever!
