Erik Valind specializes in the creation of compelling commercial work and energetic lifestyle imagery. People are the center of his photography and also serve as his inspiration. Having grown up on the brilliant beaches of the sunshine state, Erik developed an early appreciation for the transformative energy that light possesses. Now Erik uses light to add energy to every image, much as the Florida sunlight has energized him.
Inspired by the form, activity and diversity of people, Erik has lent his expertise to shape the public image of numerous personas and national brands. Erik also shares his visual approach, techniques and passion for photography internationally as a speaker at major photo conferences, as an author, and online as a Kelby Training instructor.
