Bio - Eric Wolfinger

Photo by Pete Lee

ERIC WOLFINGER is a traveling cook who found his calling behind the lens. With over a dozen award-winning books and hundreds of commissions as a photographer and director, he has built a reputation as a close collaborator whose immersive approach produces powerful storytelling.


Before working as a photographer, Eric spent five years cooking and baking in San Francisco. At Tartine Bakery, his mentor Chad Robertson had the idea that his seasoned apprentice would bring a perspective to his bread book that no other photographer could. Eric's photography for TARTINE BREAD was nominated for a James Beard Award, and the book is currently in it's 13th printing.


Ten years in, Eric continues to bring the same enthusiasm and sense of commitment to every project he takes on.
