About Erick Cruz

Who am I?

Hi! My name is Erick Cruz. I started photography in 2011 when I bought my very first camera in New York, a Nikon D7000. My prime passion is taking portraits, even from the beginning — as my very first lens of choice is actually the 85mm f1.4.

Being able to witness fractions of timeless emotions, and capturing it, is such a rewarding experience.

“For me, every photograph is a portrait; the clothes are just a vehicle for what I want to say. You’re photographing a relationship with the person you’re shooting; there’s an exchange, and that’s what that picture is.” ~ Peter Lindbergh

I have already worked with various local and international clients, and specialize in cinematic portraits, commercial work, and lifestyle brands. I habe also been published locally and internationally in various publications and magazines.

In 2018, I started to venture into videos to further my creative journey. I am happy to say now that I have even partnered up with several known companies worldwide that have helped me further achieve my dream of gaining further expertise in film.

I am now currently focused in creating digital content for various platforms for partners I meet via social media. My next client could be YOU 🙂

My Background

I have an IT background so I very much process oriented. My specialty also is corporate communications and change management. This knowledge, I believe, helps immensely in providing additional insights into creating a campaign for whatever you, as my client, is looking to do. I don’t create same cut-out projects because I treat each of my partners as a unique entity, with their own quirks, nuisances and targets niche markets.

I can attest to consistent delivery. See my works with both local and international brands and magazine publications such as:

My Workshops

I also do workshops on portraiture, post-processing and social media management. Each of there are aptly named as:

  • //BASIC Portraiture. A delve into what my mindset is when taking portraits. This is a culmination of what I have learned from since 2011. This is a whole day workshop that is a primer on gears, photography rules, portraiture concepts, planning, directing and posing models under natural light;
  • //INTERMEDIATE Post-Processing. My approach to post-processing portraits using Lightroom and Photoshop; and
  • //ADVANCED Social Media Management. An in depth approach to my overall workflow in portfolio generation. This module would cover approaching brands/clients, shoot planning, execution, post-production and social media management.
