Every week we do another Tamron Tuesday post. Over the last few weeks we've been featuring Tamron's Image Masters.
This week's spotlight profile is all about Erik Valind and it's a kick to share his work with you. He's been involved a few times on the SCU site with a guest post and a podcast. I enjoyed his approach to photography so much that I went to Amazon and bought his book, "Portrait Photography - From Snapshots to Great Shots". So, he's an artist, a photographer, an educator and a writer.
Even more fun for me personally is the fact that he grew up in this area and I'm hoping we catch up on his next trip to Florida.
On his Image Masters' page, Erik is described as:
...a freelance photographer, born and raised on the Florida beaches, now living in New York City. Specializing in commercial lifestyle photography and environmental portraiture - airy and energetic imagery defines the style and vision of this top pro photographer. Inspired by the form, activity and diversity of people, Erik has lent his expertise to shape the public image of numerous personas and national brands. Erik also shares his visual approach, techniques and passion for photography internationally as a speaker at major photo conferences, as an author, and online as a Kelby Training instructor.
Make sure Erik is on your radar and visit his site and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. You won't be disappointed.

It's always tough to pick out images that represent the work of each Image Master, because they're such a diverse and talented group. I've done my best with Erik's, but to really appreciate his style you need to visit his website.
