Eric Adams /

I'm a photographer, writer, and editor based in eastern Pennsylvania. I focus on technology, transportation, science, travel, and more. During my 25 years in the business, I've been shot by the U.S. Air Force "Pain Beam," cracked 200 mph in a Bugatti, witnessed the first private suborbital spaceflight, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, driven a Formula One race car, participated in a first-descent of a Grand Canyon slot canyon, landed in an airplane flown by an iPad, tested vehicles on the greatest race tracks in the world, edited a sex columnchased solar eclipses, interviewed celebrities, looked through the world's largest telescope, and executed the first continuous electric car drive from New York to L.A. Among other things. My primary outlets at present are Wired and Gear Patrol, though I contribute frequently to other publications, as well.

My photography has appeared at, Gear Patrol (digital and print), the Associated Press, Rhapsody MagazineThe New York Times, and in publications and social media collaborations from Audi, Porsche, Acura, Nikon, Pentax, and Airstream, among others. My work has also been featured by the Department of the Interior—as its most popular Instagram photo of 2016—and has appeared on the social media channels of Bugatti, Volvo, Honda, Acura, Cirrus Aircraft, Volkswagen, and other major brands. Additionally, I've been featured numerous times by the large Instagram photo community @JJCommunity, including being published in its 2017 book Memory Makers, which featured "75 of Instagram's best photographers." I was a Professional Nominee (i.e., finalist) in the 2017 Fine Art Photography Awards program, and I also organized and executed the largest dedicated photo contest for the 2017 U.S. total solar eclipse.

I primarily shoot with a Sony A7RII and a Nikon D5, but also wield action cameras, smartphones, and a continuously changing roster of photographic equipment that I review for the titles I contribute to.
