Eric Adams /

I'm a photographer, writer, and editor based in eastern Pennsylvania, near both NYC and Philadelphia. I focus on technology, transportation, science, travel, and more. My primary outlets are Wired, The Drive, and Gear Patrol, though I contribute frequently to other publications, as well. 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, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, edited a sex columndriven a Formula One race car, tested vehicles on race tracks around the world, chased solar eclipses, interviewed celebrities, and enjoyed many other adventures.

My photography has appeared at, Gear Patrol (digital and print), The Drive, the Associated Press, Rhapsody Magazine, and The New York Times. It has also been featured in publications and collaborations with Audi, Porsche, Acura, Nikon, Pentax, and Airstream, among others. One of my photos was the most popular of 2016 on the Department of the Interior's Instagram account, and my images have been featured 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 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 (finalist) in the 2017 Fine Art Photography Awards program, and I hosted the largest dedicated photo contest for the 2017 U.S. total solar eclipse.

I primarily shoot with a pair of Sony A7RII's, but also wield action cameras, smartphones, and a revolving door of photographic equipment that I review for the titles I contribute to.
