  1. Erik, you are a very gentleman and such a talented artist. I love your photography, the stories, the videos, and the music. I was a little jealous when I saw that you interviewed George Lucas. A friend was born at Skywalker Ranch (80 years ago) and I wanted to do a short story about her life. We tried to get permission to enter the ranch several times – we were unable. But you got to talk to the MAN. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your work. You photographed my little Hannah and me today in Sebastopol. I will ask Shirley Zindler about buying some of these photos. Erik, it was an absolute honor for Hannah and me to pose for you. Thank you so much.

    1. Marcelle,

      Thanks so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure photographing you and Hannah at Shirley’s home yesterday.

      I really appreciate you taking the time to look over my work, but don’t be too jealous about my meeting with George Lucas; I waited 2 hours in his home to photograph him and we he finally arrived he only gave me 3 minutes to take his portrait.

      Again, it was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for the lovely note.

      -Sincerely, Erik
