About Me

Hi there! I'm Erik Weiss, a freelance photographer who grew up in the gorgeous Chippewa Valley. After living and studying in Madison for four years and after a short stint abroad, I have returned to my roots here in Eau Claire. Each landscape or person I photograph has played a formative role in shaping the lens through which I view the world.

I strive to capture the natural beauty in every setting. I often find myself traveling off the beaten path, with my camera in tow, in search of magical locations. I don't use a flash or altered lighting if I can help it. Instead, I use the natural lighting to capture my subjects, whether they are people or landscapes, at their best. 

Life moves so quickly we often miss the little details. A shy smile between newlyweds, a child in mid laugh, or the vibrant autumn colors before the first freeze. I strive to catch the beauty in these moments and preserve them so they'll last a lifetime.


Because I'm new to the photography business, I'm offering a one-of-a-kind deal: You get to set the price. If you're interested in having photographs done, just reach out to me and let's plan something! At the end of the session, once I've delivered my edits, just pay me what you think I deserve. All I ask is that you respect the time and effort I've put towards the images. That's it. There's no catch. I won't price gouge you for photos of your special day or try to sell you on extra products. So if you want to help out a small business owner on the start of their journey while enjoying the simplicity of a zero-hassle session, look no further.
