Not only is he a great photographer, he is a dedicated screener here and I know he works very hard to keep up the standards of photography here and although he is not a frequent contributor to the forums, he is always willing to help.

Eric has become a close personal friend and all I can say is that he is a great guy.

I'm pleased that I managed to arrange the opportunity for him to take this shot and spent a great couple of days with him.

Congratulations, Eric!

I have known Eric for quite a while. He is a very nice guy, and I always like to be spotting planes with him in YYZ. Just like what Phil has said, Eric is not only a great photographer, but also one of the most "productive" screeners in the team - in the latest half year he has screened more than 20K photos.

Eric, well done, and welcome to 1K-photo club.  Smile

Regards

I have admired Eric's work (and access to aircraft) for a while now.

Keep up the good work and maybe someday you can take me airside at YUL.  Smile
I'd rather be flying.

Very well done Eric, congrats!  champagne 

He does not only devote (probably way too) many hours to this site screening, but also contributes with some truly amazing work.
His 1,000th:

I agree... he has many excellent photos which I often look at for couple years and he still product some more excellent photos to date... plus his time to screen many photos

Give me HIGH FIVE  champagne 

Hope our paths cross next month at YUL
