Erin Sparler-Brandberg is an artist and fine-art photographer residing in Pennsylvania. In addition to her fine-art photography and limited edition prints, Erin’s artwork is also licensed and available for licensing on products at Art4Licensing.com.
An active environmental documentary photographer, Sparler’s current emphasis is on multiple exposure and HDR or High Dynamic Range photography. Whether using traditional techniques such as internal (in-camera!) multiple exposure photography, more modern techniques such as HDR photography (High Dynamic Range) or by employing innovative capture techniques, Erin is constantly seeking new ways to visually represent the principles of movement and illuminate the mundane with a modern aesthetic. Her work uses the interplay of symbols, shapes, color and time to create densely layered, impressionistic images with vibrant colors, surrealistic qualities.
Erin Sparler-Brandberg has had the privilege to learn from such illustrious teachers and artists as the Photoshop expert and digital printing guru John Paul Caponigro. She studied sacred geometry with the illustrious compositional analyst and artist Mark Reynolds and has the honor of claiming friendship and learning from experienced photographs such as Laura Zito, photographer of the Bedowin and Raymond Gehman a 20 year veteran of National Geographic. These wonderful friends and mentors have contributed enormously to Erin’s viewpoint and innovative method of creating art and as such deserve recognition.
