Erik Johnson Photography | About

I've lived in Nebraska my entire life.  There's just something about that prairie calmness - it's impossible to portray to those that haven't experienced it.  Standing on a hillside, overlooking a thousand acres of fertile rolling prairie, with the only sound the clicking of a shutter: it's indescribable.  I wouldn't trade it for anything.

So as you might have guessed, I'm a photographer currently living in the Midwest.  I love capturing the rural scenes of my home-state, but I also have a knack for traveling whenever I can.  I'm always planning my next excursion, so be sure to stay up to date on my travels through my website here and through my various social media channels.

Since picking up a DSLR camera in late 2013, I have been fortunate to shoot multiple freelance assignments for the magazine NebraskaLife, as well as also being published in National Geographic, NEBRASKAland Magazine, and Midwest Living Magazine.  I have had content featured by NASA, Smithsonian, REI, Cabelas, and Mossy Oak. 

Recent work includes creating imagery for "Unbridled Faith: 100 Devotions From The Horse Farm" - authored by Cara Whitney, wife of comedian and actor Dan Whitney.
