Photographer. Writer. Storyteller

Erin feels weird talking about herself in the third person, but here we go.

Erin is a Detroit-based photographer and writer and a born and raised Michigander. She graduated from the University of Michigan where she studied English and creative writing, but learned how to be a photojournalist at the student-run Michigan Daily. Before joining the freelance world, Erin worked as a newspaper photographer — although her love for photography stretches beyond journalism. As a freelancer she’s worked for organizations such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, TIME, MLB, and The Guardian. If she’s not working, she’s probably baking, falling asleep on the couch by 9 p.m., or hiking the Appalachian Trail.
