Eric M Renard
Eric M. Renard is a Los Angeles based Photographer. Born in New York, he attended school in the Bronx. Eric spent his summers in Maine, where he was first exposed to photography and dark rooms. Eric’s passion for photography was reignited at Tufts University in Boston, where he studied under Sigfried Halus.
After graduating, Eric moved to San Francisco, working part time 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 physically in Los Angeles and Minnesota and viewed digitally around the world, receiving numerous awards.
