“I had learned a number of lighting systems as a photo assistant but was drawn back to dynalite when choosing a system for my career. I have used dynalite for nearly 6 years and love every aspect of them. They are obviously light weight, rugged, and very consistent. So whether I am on location or in the studio, whether shooting food, fashion or interiors I feel I have the best tools to produce the best images.” – Eric Wagner
After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications at Ohio University, where he specialized in photo illustration and photojournalism, Eric Wagner moved to Columbus to start a dynamic career assisting local and national photographers. He spent six years honing his skills and perfecting his style with a high-end commercial studio before breaking away to start his own studio.
Illumination, LLC is not just a name, but a fully-equipped studio space in downtown Columbus, featuring a built-in “infinity” wall, state of the art equipment, dressing rooms and in-house editing/retouching services. The word illumination also summarizes Eric’s professional philosophy. His photography is noted for its inspired use of light and the sense that the subject, be it food, architecture, or person, has been enlightened or that some aspect of their character has been revealed by the artist.
Eric’s work with local and national media venues has given him the honor of “illuminating” such public figures as Le Bron James, Drew Lachey, Justin Chambers, Tara Reid, Brandie Malay, Sean Faris, and Brady Quinn. He has also photographed pieces for such national fashion brands as Victoria’s Secret, Limited Brands, Bath and Body Works, Saks Fifth Ave. and Fashion Assassin.
