Erik is the Vice President of Operations for KelbyOne, and a passionate Rocket Launch photographer. His goal is to create images that help educate people about the space industry and inspire them to learn more about the beauty of space exploration. His passion was ignited in 2015 by seeing the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster land successfully. He felt like from that moment, he had to be part of documenting and capturing the beauty and inspiration of spaceflight and has never looked back. He has recently pushed his work farther by working with Plotaverse to heighten his images with motion.
