While growing up in New Zealand, Eiko acquired his first SLR camera at the age of fourteen. He quickly discovered his passion for capturing images of animals, especially birds, in their natural habitat. During extensive trips along the West Coast of British Columbia and Alaska in the early 1990's his focus shifted to coastal landscapes above and below the waterline.
Whether exploring the ocean or alternate bodies of water, such as marshes and rivers, Eiko has developed a dramatic style in which he celebrates the corners of our world which are seldom seen. He captures the surreal through constant awareness of lighting and unique angles. He has won awards and has been published in numerous international magazines, including National Geographic, British Columbia Magazine, Scuba Diver- Ocean Planet, Sport Diver, Diver, People!, Submerge, Ducks Unlimited, and Orion to name a few.
His Fine Art Photography has also been sold around the world. Recently he has had an image accepted into the National Geographic Fine Art Galleries and also into the Nat Geo 50 best Landscapes exhibition. He has exihibited locally and at the Grants Pass Museum of Art in Oregon.
While a big part of his work focuses on Salmon and local watershed issues, other underwater and topside subjects round out his collection.
Eiko is a proud member of the OCEAN ARTISTS SOCIETY.
"At times I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the world around us. I am passionate about sharing this Pacific Northwest environment with people around the world. My work is all about drawing attention to the entire environment and associated watersheds, from the mountaintops all the way down, and into our vast, but fragile oceans. Through artistic and dramatic imagery I endeavor to offer people a glimpse of that world, even if they live in a big city condo, or have limited ability to experience the beauty of nature.
Because of my work with wild salmon, I see first-hand the importance of a healthy, sustainable environment. Vibrant, wild salmon runs are one of the first things to diminish as encroachment and pollution affect a river.
Just as writer and conservationist Roderick Haig-Brown loved to fish, he also was concerned about the welfare of the fish in the river and surrounding environs. At a time when Campbell River was experiencing a period of growth like never before, and new projects like the hydro dam were threatening the natural environment, his passion for the environment was crucial. His writing influenced fisheries biologists, ecologists and countless others interested in the evolving relationship between people and nature.
I believe the tide is turning for the benefit of our wilderness and our future generations through a change in philosophy towards the environment. By people becoming aware of the need to protect our precious waterways, the salmon and associated wildlife are being helped. This is a big part in ensuring a healthy global environment. I look to the resilience of wild salmon as a great example of the forces of life itself. By making needed changes in our actions towards the environment, nature will achieve a balance and hopefully be restored to a semblance of its once abundant state."
