Eric Nelson? Photographer I began taking photographs as a young child around ten years old when he purchased a cheap plastic camera for a few dollars. After taking 12 photos of things around the house, I asked my father to have the film developed. I waited patiently a few days. The day finally came when my father handed me the photo envelope with a note attached. The message read, there were no images on the negatives to print. I later found out the camera lens hade a cover on it from the inside of the camera body of all places. Since that first experience with his camera, I have taken hundreds of Thousands of Photographs. From Puerto Rico, To Maui and Kauai, Hawaii having photographed over 800 hundred Wedding / Special Events. I've also had the pleasure of photographing Bill Signings and Special Event at the California State Capitol with former Governor Pete Wilson.

Auburn,CA., Truckee,CA., Murphy's,CA,, Sacramento,CA., Folsom,CA., San Diego,CA., Los Angeles,CA., Bel Air,CA. Beverly Hills,CA., San Francisco,CA., Napa,CA., Sonoma,CA., St. Helena,CA. South Lake Tahoe and Kauai, Hawaii.
