Eric M. Renard

Eric Renard is an award-winning, fine art photographer and creative director based in Los Angeles. Born in New York, he attended school just outside NYC. 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 reignited at Tufts University, where he studied under Siegfried Halus. After graduating, Eric moved to San Francisco and worked as an architectural photographer before moving to Los Angeles.

Eric’s unique exposure to both urban and rural life can be seen throughout his work, as he is equally at home in both settings. Usually working in black and white, 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 across the United States and Europe, receiving numerous awards. His work has been published in both books and photography magazines. He is also on the board of directors for several non-profit art organizations, helping to organize and promote art exhibitions.
