Eric Rock

Eric is NHPE’s lead naturalist, and as such is well versed in a wide range of adventures and photo destinations worldwide. Eric's interest in photography started as a teenager when he purchased a 35mm camera with his first paycheck from a summer job. He immediately began exploring the forest, rivers and mountains around his boyhood home in western Pennsylvania and was successful in publishing photographs in local magazines and newspapers while still attending high school. During college at University of Alaska, Eric continued to explore his local surroundings - camera always in hand. His work caught the attention of photographer Charles Mason, and through his mentoring, Eric's passion for photography continued to evolve. After pursuing an education in wildlife biology, Eric made the decision to share his passion and knowledge for nature and photography by guiding nature and photo tours as a career.

Praise from Natural Habitat Travelers:

A. Boyar
"Unfortunately you don't allow a score higher than 5 because that's what we would give Eric. Eric's knowledge and enthusiam for Alaska and its wildlife was mind-blowing and infectious. We learned so much and LAUGHED our way through the trip."

C. Claridge
"Eric was beyond exceptional. His total devotion to the smooth running of the trip and the comfort of the clients was utterly amazing. In addition, although being around bears can never be 100% risk-free, I had complete trust in Eric's ability to handle any situation that might arise. I would sign up in a second for any trip guided by him."

D. Martin
"They broke the mold with Eric! He is the ultimate expedition leader, with extraordinary patience and extensive knowledge of the areas visited. Undoubtably, he is a valued asset to Nat Hab!"

R. Holland
"Eric Rock is the best thing you guys got going! Never lose this guy!! Without Eric, this trip would have been pretty normal, but with Eric's humor and knowledge, he made it one of the best trips I have ever been on."

D. Pierce
"Excuse my pun, but Eric ROCKS! He's funny, articulate, highly educated and also very helpful about increasing our photography skills. He even loans his own equipment to those of us who can't afford the really excellent equipment."
