Hello my name is Eric Poppleton, aka, “epop”.
Born in Pittsburgh and raised in Indiana. I have had a love for action sports since a young age. I am sure driving my parents bananas taking me from one end of the state to another in any given season.
As an undergraduate studying business, I discovered photography. Moving west to attend graduate school in photography at CalArts, located just north of Los Angeles. I have stayed put since on the west coast based out of Los Angeles.
My career in photography / cinematography has taken me to most corners of the globe and has led to several expeditions on foot, motorcycle and other means of transportation for commercial clients, TV productions and documentaries.
On the 2 wheeled side of adventure, I began riding BMW GS bikes in the metro area of Los Angeles and quickly ventured out to discover a greater cross section of the west coast. Travelling to work by bike has also become common as I made a cross country trip from Los Angeles to Miami for work in a handful of days – camping along the way.
My obsession for 2 wheels runs deep as I continue to evolve the sport.
You may see me guiding, following and / or capturing our tours as they unfold in still / motion with my camera. Epop will working behind the scenes to visually capture your personal journey.
See you out there!
