Erik Williamson Sydney - Brisbane

"Erik Williamson wants to live in a world where 'weather days' aren't a problem, his daughter gets the volume on the TV just right for dialogue and music, all the motorbikes in the world are at his disposal, and his friends are always around for BBQs!

As a photographer, he’s been applauded for his technical skill as much as his eye, and nobody knows more about getting a tricky car shoot from brief to the billboard stage.

When he’s not shooting cars, (and animals, but let's be very clear we mean with his camera as he's a big softy and animal lover), you can find him with his wife and daughter or racing his bike. Preferably racing his bike while his wife and daughter cheer him on.

Find out how to see Erik’s work, talk about Erik’s work and book Erik for work at hellotpd.com/Erikwilliamson."
