Originally from Ontario, Canada, Eric Nalpas spent his formative years in the Gulf Coast beach town of Sarasota, Florida. He developed an interest in photography while traveling the world as a surfboard shaper, and began the shift to full-time photographer after an extended trip to the Basque region in 2001.


Nalpas continued work as a photojournalist, covering Red Cross efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and during the San Bernardino wildfires. He also shoots action sports such as polo, surfing, and rock climbing, and brings a fresh approach to traditional commercial photography, weddings, and portraits.
