About Eric Parker

    At the age of 16 I was introduced to whitewater kayaking. The power of the river, the international kayaking community, and exploration quickly became the focal point of my life. As I learned about rivers, I realized how little we as humans know about these incredibly beautiful and sacred places. I soon became overwhelmed with the urge to document these memorizing landscapes: canyons, waterfalls, and pristine waterways around the world. Naturally, photography became the medium for me to share my experiences and document nature’s wonders. Now after 8 years, hundreds of rivers, and 24 countries, my passion continues to prosper as it did when I took my first strokes on the rivers where I captured my first images.When I am not on the river or in the mountains, I can be found working on various commercial, editorial and conservation projects. I hope to continue on this journey and promote environmental stewardship and protection of our planet’s most precious resource, water.
