Beauty in the Lens: Eric Roland Photography

By Elisha Neubauer

Eric Roland is no stranger to the camera. After much encouragement from his mother, an avid and proficient photographer, Roland took up his first camera at the young age of eight. It didn't take long for him to discover his true passion: photographing people. This love of capturing people's true essence followed him throughout his childhood and into his adult life, where he launched his own photography company, Eric Roland Photography.

Roland has been in the professional photography industry for over eight years now. In that time, he has photographed everything from landscapes to babies, but his specialization lies in the process of event photography. Roland has traveled all over Central and Southern California for weddings and other events, meeting an array of different people looking for quality photography.

"As my career progresses, I see more and more how fortunate I am to be able to photograph people with their special occasions," he said. "I am blessed in the way that I often get to photograph people experiencing one of the important moments in their life."

Looking to capture these events, whether it be a wedding, engagement, family reunion, or baby shower, Roland takes a very careful approach, allowing each subject to let their best self shine through. To ensure he is offering the best and highest quality shots available, Roland has continued to keep up with his education in the industry. He is constantly learning the newest and greatest techniques floating around the industry and insists on using only the top of the line equipment.

"My approach is to keep things fresh, candid and approaches that allow the subject to be comfortable and excited about the process," he said.

Born and raised in the Santa Barbara area, Roland knows the ins and outs of the city. He takes revels in showing his clients some of the most serene and photo-worthy locations, enhancing every shot with the striking beauty that is Santa Barbara.

"Santa Barbara has an eclectic mix of beautiful venues," Roland said. "I take great pride in sharing these opportunities to my clients. I pride myself on the clarity and diversification of the shots of my work."
