Thanks very much for considering Erik Bishoff Photography. I am an experienced Eugene Oregon Wedding Photographer, Commercial Photographer, Architecture Photographer and Freelance Photojournalist. I have covered over 85 weddings and NCAA sporting events, dozens of architecture and real estate projects, and hundreds lifestyle and portrait shoots since starting my business in 2005. Please have a look at my work at your convenience and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I sincerely hope you like what you see and I look forward to hearing from you! - Erik
THE PHOTOJOURNALISTIC STYLE - I first entered the professional field as a photojournalist freelancing for the local student newspaper. After my first few shoots, a Eugene area peace rally and a Oregon Duck basketball game, I had a bit of an epihany about the power of photojournalism. With the snap of a camera I was capturing and preserving life changing moments as they happened. It was a very fulfilling and profound experience. While my studies and young family shifted my focus from news photojournalism to more local persuits, I continue to shoot in the photojournalistic style as I feel that is the best way to capture life and to tell a story... with the honesty of a candid eye.
EDUCATION - I'd like to point out that I have a formal education in Photography and Architectural Design. It was a rigorous seven years and I can't say enough good things about the quality of the education I received. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the University of Oregon which is where I got my start in Photojournalism and Fine Art Photography. I then went on to receive a Master of Architecture, also from the University of Oregon, in 2008. Since that time I have worked both as an Intern Architect and a Design and Planning Professional while working summers at a Wedding Photographer. I am now working as a full time photographer with an emphasis in event photography, architecture photography, photojournalism and commercial photography.
BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY - Like my photographic style, I also strive to be completely up front and honest in my business practices. What you see is what you get and I guarantee that there are no tricks or loop-holes here. Many of my associates feel that I am crazy to so freely share my work on community blogs and exchange information with other photographers. However, it is most important to me that the level of our profession be lifted across the board through transparence and open exchange. That being said, I do feel that a formal education in photography, art or a related study is a must. I see a lot of individuals out there who are working without adequate training, insurance or a legitimate business and their clients are suffering the consequences. Regarding my own business, I am insured and a long-term member of the ASMP and AIA. I have researched the market and strive to bring my clients a fair deal with every exchange. My prices are farily firm but I also strive to be as open, accommodating and flexible as possible. Every photo shoot is unique and I encourage you to contact me with any special circumstances or needs.
