Erik Blume Photography is seeing some changes! With the intentions of gaining a greater corporate image, I am joining forces with some amazing local talent. Any and all corporate inquiries moving forward will go through www.mplsvisualmedia.com.
This page will remain for my personal work and always a good way to contact me directly but a large amount of my efforts will be towards the new venture! If you love dead mermaids, cars and the occasional wedding, then awesome.
If you are looking for high level visual marketing materials then please head over to MPLS Visual Media! Corresponding social media accounts will follow this transformation as well.
Hello! Welcome! Little backstory, I grew up in North St. Paul, MN. Attending North High I picked up photography by accident, winning the congressional art show complete with trip to Washington DC. After high school I went to the University of Wisconsin - Stout where I studied graphic design and applied photography. Graduated in 2014 with a BFA in Design and an Applied Photography minor.
Internationally published in print, countless publishings online as well as self published. Currently residing in St. Paul, working full time at Modern Automotive Performance as the "Media Guru" specializing in all things photo, design and video. I also own a partnership LLC "First Dance Films" (Myself + lifelong friend John Ewald) dedicated strictly to wedding photography and video.
I am fortunate enough to have found my passion early on and continue to pursue it to the fullest everyday. I do this because it makes me happier than anything and it has allowed me to do things I could only dream of. Photography has also allow me to meet some of the most amazing people imaginable.
