Travel Afar: My Journey with Micro Four Thirds

Eric’s career as a photographer and guide spans two decades. He has traveled to the far corners of the earth exploring exotic cultures and wilderness environments. Over time, he came to realize that to maintain a creative edge, he needed to switch equipment to better fit his style. Developing his artistic voice using the micro four thirds format (a standard released in 2008 for the design of mirrorless interchangeable lens digital cameras), he found he could travel lighter and expand his photographic possibilities without sacrificing quality. This is a story of that process.

Eric Rock is a leading travel and nature photographer who purchased his first camera at the age of sixteen. While studying wildlife biology at the University of Alaska, he developed his skills as a photographer and teaching assistant in the School of Journalism. Eric began his career as a guide by serving as head
naturalist at Kantishna Roadhouse in Alaska’s Denali National Park – a perfect location to explore nature with a camera. Since that time, Eric has circled the globe utilizing his understanding of nature and photography to enhance his clients’ experiences through personalized instruction.

Eric is an Olympus Educator and leads photographic adventures through Joseph Van Os Photo Safaris. Olympus cameras and lenses have allowed Eric to photograph lighter, further and longer in his travels.
