Fantastic Photographs by Eric Curry
Wed, 03/03/2010 - 01:22
Eric Curry was born in 1956 in Los Angeles, California. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design in 1980, he lived in Scandinavia for the next 12 years, running his own advertising photography studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark, returning to the states in 1992.
Originally trained and specializing in studio still life/special effects photography for all those years, Eric eventually transitioned over to location industrial photography, because it affords, as he comments:
"A much broader pallet of avenues for creativity."
Currently, Mr. Curry creates photographs exclusively on location for select clients and himself, taking full advantage of the depth and possibilities afforded by each and every new challenge.
