If something big is happening in the Tennessee Valley, you can be sure that local legend Eric Schultz will be there with his camera. Whether you know Schultz by name or not, if you’ve ever opened up the Huntsville Times you are more than familiar with his work. Who better than this sharp-eyed Huntsville native to document the cultural events, sports victories, human interest stories, and natural beauty of our region?
Though readers of Huntsville Times will already be familiar with Eric’s striking photojournalism, Schultz’s studio at Lowe Mill A&E also offers high-quality reproductions of creative and non-commercial images captured throughout his many adventures in Huntsville and beyond. Come peer behind this naturally curious artist’s lens in his second floor Studio 2018, at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.
In 2015, Lowe Mill presented the opportunity to move to a new studio in the North Wing which offered a small room attached to the studio. It so happens at the same time Eric Schultz was looking for a place to relocate his home darkroom. The planets aligned, and with the help of Kickstarter funding, Rocket City Darkroom sprang from some pencil drawings into reality.
When Eric’s there, photography is off the list of things you have to think twice about. – Lee Roop, Science and Space Reporter, al.com
