Since 1985, Horan has been photographing the coastal Southeast. His commercial work includes freelance assignment, fine art photography installation and stock photography for national advertising, book and magazine publication. “In the Likeness of Everything” represents Horan’s recent personal work captured while navigating the intracoastal waterways and Carolina coastal region and through all seasons.
Horan graduated from the Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs with a degree in Commercial Art and Photography. His photography career started at Colorado Fish, Games and Parks Department documenting wildlife behavior.
In the early 80’s, Horan expanded his training in New York City where he assisted some of the top photographers in the region. Then he came south where he established Eric Horan Photography, Inc. on Hilton Head Island.
Among the notable books where his images appear include “Carolina Nature, A Photographer’s View of the Natural World of the Carolinas,” “Lowcountry A-Z,” “South Carolina, A Compass American Guidebook” (published by Fodor’s) Clairmont Press & Holt, Rinehart Winston Textbooks, “EXPOSURE” (included among 100 of OUTSIDE magazines finest photographs over 15 years,) and National Geographic Books.
Among the magazines where his work has appeared are Business Week, Cruising World, Fortune, McCall’s, The New York Times Sunday Travel, Orion, OUTSIDE, Sail, and on the cover of “Smithsonian.”
Horan’s nature photography is recognized throughout the Carolinas and Georgia in part by his iconic wildlife portraits, sky, land and water scenes showcased in Lowcountry Calendar published annually from 2001 to 2012 and winning national calendar awards each of the last eight years in print. Since 2004, Horan has extended his photo and natural history training to guiding fellow photographers and nature enthusiasts in his 19’ Carolina Skiff, touring remote destinations along the intracoastal waterways and natural wildlife preserves in the Southeast.
