About Erin

Hi! My name is Erin Lee and I am a sports and portrait photographer based out of Austin, Texas (where I have lived for more that 16 years). I have been developing my strong passion for photography over the past the past seven years. Every time I would drift away to pursue something else, photography always drew me back in. I couldn't stay away! You will very rarely find me in front of a camera as I is much more comfortable behind it, which means I can completely understand those who are camera shy!

I studied both Photography and Graphic Design at the Savannah College or Art and Design, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Photography and a minor in Graphic Design. While studying at SCAD, I was able to hone my style,expand my skill set and confirm my love for capturing the important moments in life.

At school, I focused intensely on sports photography and developed a documentary-style approach to the genre. My passion for sports photography grew naturally over the years as my younger brothers became increasingly involved in sports as they got older. I love the fast-paced challenge that sports photography provides and my ultimate goal is to show the players and spectators the true abilities and heart of the young athletes that I photograph by focusing on capturing both the emotional behind the scenes narrative and the intensity under the lights. My goal is to be able to provide lasting memories to athletes and their families through my sports photography.

I maintain a similar philosophy when it comes to portraiture. I want to capture my clients and their families in the best ways that represent them. I try to make them comfortable, catch the little moments of interaction, and tell their individual stories. I do minimal enhancing to images in order to make you look your best, but make sure you still look like you. 

I would love to help you capture this moment in your life and all the moments to come. I'd be honored to help make your memories even more special. If you are interested in booking a session with me or have a question (photography related or not!) please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
