Eric M Renard (www.ericrenardphotography.com) is a Los Angeles based photographer. Born in New York, he attended school in Riverdale, NY. Eric spent his summers in Maine, where he was first introduced to photography and learned his way around a darkroom. Eric’s passion for photography was once again ignited at Tufts University in Boston, where he studied under Siegfried Halus. After graduating, Eric moved to San Francisco as an architectural photographer before moving to Los Angeles. Eric’s unique exposure to both urban and rural living can be seen throughout his work, as he is equally at home in both settings. Whether working in black and white or vibrant colors, his urban cityscapes and rural landscapes often reflect an eerie sense of peace and quiet, rarely portraying more than one or two people. Eric’s photography has been exhibited in galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Minnesota and viewed digitally around the world, receiving numerous awards.
