Eric Horan is the owner and tour guide of Horan Photo. He was raised in Colorado on his family’s ranch and spent much of his childhood taking part in outdoor activities like horseback riding, fishing, hunting and skiing. He spent most summers in northern Michigan doing sailboat races. Eric studied Commercial Art & Photography at Colorado Mountain College. Upon completion of his studies, Eric got his first job documenting wildlife for the Colorado Fish, Game and Parks Department, this changed his life forever. As a freelance photographer, he took photos of the wildlife and landscapes as editorial content for magazine, newspaper and book publishers. Eric’s work was greatly admired by many, and he began specialising in the travel, sailing, and wildlife activity in their natural setting.
His extensive portfolio includes Business Week, Fortune, Southern Living, Orion, The New York Times Sunday Travel, OUTSIDE, Yachting, Sail and Cruising World and has been on the cover of Smithsonian. Book publishers include Fodor’s, National Geographic Books and later his own, Carolina Nature. Eric began to feel the need to expand his technical skills, so he moved to New York City to study with some of the top commercial photographers in the industry. There he was involved in projects with UPS and Coca Cola. On returning to the low-country, he founded Eric Horan Photography. Eric is proud of his services providing a range of collateral material for advertising clients from brochures to billboards and digital media. He has extensive experience with architectural and aerial photography, environmental portraiture, and active sporting life.
