Erickson Surfaces exists to equip other artists with tools to craft beautiful stories. The people in our community are dynamic, they are creative and resourceful, they help others, they make us hungry, they hustle hard. With the same enthusiasm and passion for what we create, we are here to serve that community with our product offerings.

Our captivating collection of double-sided photography backgrounds, risers and props are made to order using premium quality wood, stain, paint, plaster and years of experience. Lightweight surfaces, shapes and windows are available to purchase or rent, depending on the needs of your clients and projects. We offer a range of styling and photography tools but also love creating custom products built to your specifications. Let's design something together to bring your vision to life.

We love seeing our art and our story become a part of your art and your story!


We offer a wide range of surfaces, shapes and windows for culinary and product photography. Our products are artfully crafted by hand and designed to amplify your imagery. If your creativity expands further than the breadth of our collection, we invite you to collaborate with us on custom projects created to your specifications.


Each double-sided board offers two surfaces (Side A + Side B). As you build your collection of Erickson Surfaces, consider what you shoot and how you shoot. While a single board is perfect for top-down photography, pairing two boards as a wall and a floor are ideal for straight-on images. Combining three boards will create a corner scene with two walls and a floor.


Our surfaces are available in 3 distinctive sizes. Select the right scale based on your needs, storage capabilities, and budget. Small (21x34”) is ideal for tight crops, Medium (34x34”) is great for mid-size scenes, and Large (34x47”) is perfect for wide shots.


Start by pairing a wood option with a plaster finish. Though you won’t be able to use these surfaces together as a double-sided board, best-sellers like Tobacco Lath - Reclaimed and Plaster - Cement are a great foundation to build upon. Round out your styling options with a second board that combines a solid option and a multicolor finish like Latte and Concrete - Light. Unless you have specific brand colors in mind, neutral-colored surfaces in a variety of textures offer the most versatility.


What started out as a collection of risers has evolved into a series of geometric props that not only elevate your photography, but also create layers and movement through their unique shapes and textures. Erickson Shapes are crafted from 1” MDF (and sometimes stacked to create thicker products), enabling them to be styled upright or lying down. Reference each product listing for color and finish options.


Consider the size and type of products you’d like to style. Our ever-evolving collection of Erickson Shapes ranges as small as 3x3x1” and as large as 20x12x1” to accommodate a variety of scenes. We recommend starting your collection with Square 4x4x4, Rectangle 6x4x3, Circle 5x5x2, and Hexagon 5x4.25x1 for a well-rounded foundation of risers. Create miniature tabletop scenes by using dynamic shapes like the Wave Set, Double Arch Frame or Circle Frame Set. The real magic happens when you mix-and-match these props and risers together.
