I'm Erin McCarthy -- a fine art and interiors photographer and designer based in Chicago, IL. I am inspired by my southern California roots, nature, beautiful interior spaces, color, pattern and symmetry. I am grateful to my photography teacher - the late Richard Stromberg - as well as my many art teachers over the years who continue to inform my work. I am thrilled to be chasing my dreams and continually searching for light, color and beauty. I also hold a certificate in Interior Design from the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach, CA and I am driven to create art but specifically art that works well in interiors.

My fine art prints are available for sale and range in price from $40.00 to $500.00 depending on size. Most can be printed up to 30 x 30 or 30 x 40. Framing available upon request. Please shoot me a note to start your custom order. 

I am in the process of launching a home decor fabric and wallpaper line using my surface pattern designs. Until that formally happens, I can custom order these items for you. 

Interior Designers - I offer a "to the trade" program and will happily photograph any of my work that you place in a client's home (and provide you with digitals) if you are in the Chicago area. Email me for details.

Shoot me a note at erin@ekmphotography.com to inquire about booking a shoot, purchasing prints, fabric or wallpaper, licensing or other collaborative opportunities.
