Erin Manning is a professional photographer, teacher, and television personality living in Los Angeles, California. Television viewers know Erin best as the host of The Whole Picture, the Telly Award – winning digital photography show from HGTV-HD and DIY Network. She helps people understand photography and technology by translating technical mumbo-jumbo into everyday words and facilitating their learning with a clear, friendly teaching style.
Erin first fell in love with photography at age seven when she discovered Edward Steichen's book The Family of Man. That early encounter with images of people from all over the world shaped the direction she was to take with her photography — capturing moments with and between people.
Whether Erin is in front of the camera or behind it, photography has always been a part of her life and combines her experience and education in art, technology, and entertainment. She specializes in lifestyle imagery for clients such as AT&T, Bank of America, Disney, as well as various lifestyle magazines and healthcare organizations. Erin spent several years honing her craft by working as a commercial, portrait, and stock photographer, in addition to working for Getty Images and completing a degree in Studio Art/Graphic Design from Loyola Marymount University.
