Eric Vitwar

Eric caught the photography bug in high school starting with his Canon AE-1 in the 1980s. Ever since then, his passions and excitement for photography have never waned. 

Eric has photographed at the professional level at sporting events and weddings since the 1990s. It doesn’t matter if the subject is a moose in the river, a truck in the air, or a bride and groom at the altar, Eric enjoys photographing them, and he loves to share his passion and skills by teaching others.

​His love of photography prompted him to purchase Tuttle Cameras in 1998, and he has been “playing with toys (cameras)” ever since.

Lance Folden

Lance has spent many years in the field of photography, starting when he was in high school. His father was a freelance photographer, so he had access to a lot of cameras and lenses, as well as a darkroom in the garage. He started managing camera stores in 1987, and continued to do so until 2004. That is when he got this job at Marketstar. Now he travels around the world teaching about the Canon EOS systems at workshops and events.  Although he has always considered himself primarily a sports photographer, working with Canon in various workshops and environments he has a great appreciation of other fields of photography such Macro, Wildlife, and Portraits.
