 About me

Eric Arntzen


I am a 32-year old from greater Boston whose day job is marketing for a semiconductor company. I have had a love of photography for most of my life and consider it my hobby. My first camera was a Sony CyberShot point-and-shoot. I've always believed that great photography isn't determined by owning the highest-end equipment, but rather by using the camera as a vehicle to tell a story. A few years ago I made the jump to DSLR and use an entry-level Nikon D5300, which was used for most of the shots featured on this site. I believe it is the best time to be a photographer with all the technology packed into even entry-level cameras, which allows me to focus less on the technical aspects of photography and more on capturing the story in front of me.

I created this website to share a few of my favorite from over the years and hopefully inspire others to explore the world of photography. My job allows me to travel to amazing places around the world, and I have captured some of my favorite bird photos and landscapes along the way. My advice to those interested in being more active in photography: don't be intimidated by the overwhelming options and price of today's equipment. I hope these images are a testament to the power of basic equipment (the Nikon D5300 I use bundled with an 18-55mm lens regularly goes on sale for <$500). The best way to get better is to get out there and experiment!

A selection of prints are available for purchase to help cover the cost of hosting the website. All photos appearing on this site are my own. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any comments or questions! I'd love to hear from you.
