You’ve found the online home of Erin Outdoors. I’m a photographer passionate about learning & sharing stories from all over this world, particularly those that have a deep connection to this planet and its people.

WELCOME

The Photo Series that Went *Viral*

When the pandemic hit mid-March, I challenged myself to create adventures from entirely within my apartment. It quickly went from personal project to international news. Who knew?

Our GREAT INDOORS

Welcome! I’m Erin, a photographer passionate about the outdoors, meaningful travel, and living deliberately. My work lives somewhere in the middle of three worlds: travel & the outdoors, photography & tech, and personal development. My goal is to show the beauty and complexity of the planet we live on, and to encourage genuine connection to the outdoors, culture, people, and wildlife.
