Introducing Photographer Erik Isakson

My love for photography began when I was 11 years old with a Sports Illustrated subscription that included a free camera. Changing the plastic cameras f-stop’s from cloudy to partly cloudy, and even to the sunny setting was all the sophistication I needed to test it out the first time photographing Shamu on our family vacation. From there, as they say, the rest is history. Having participated in sports and outdoor adventure throughout my life I naturally gravitated towards sports lifestyle imagery. It has always provided me with opportunities to challenge myself in new ways, creatively and technically.

Whether I'm photographing an NBA superstar with a five minute time limit or snowboarders soaring through the air, each day as a photographer is exhilarating and satisfying. I am based in Southern California and look forward to working with you on your next project. Thank you for taking a moment to view my images. Now if I could just find that Sports Illustrated camera…
