Erik Almas Europe photographers

Photography sort of fell into Erik's lap. He didn’t have a great interest in pictures. Or art. And a relative didn’t give him a camera when he was 12..... it was small and random.

Erik grew up in Trondheim, Norway. A big city by Norwegian standards but in reality, quite small with its population of 150,000 people. At 22 he moved to the US to study photography at the Academy of Art University for four years. He had some truly inspiring teachers that changed his goals from shooting sporting events for his hometown newspaper to wanting to create great images. He graduated in 1999 with 'Best Portfolio' in the spring show. In 2004 they gave him an Honorary Degree of Outstanding Alumnus.

Erik assisted Jim Erickson for almost three years and has always said that he couldn´t have had a better mentor. He inspired, encouraged, nurtured and gave him a set of working habits that have helped him succeed on his own.

Eric has been fortunate to work with some great people on some great assignments for clients including Intercontinental Hotel Group, Turspain, American Airlines, Absolut, Ritz Carlton, Credit Suisse, Genentech, Union Pacific, Toyota, Hyatt, Puma, Pfizer, Microsoft and Nike.

Photographer is represented by Aproductions.
