Erickson Surfaces

We are a husband and wife team (Doug & Ginny), living and working out of Southern California with our two beautiful, crazy kiddos.  Our business is completely grassroots.  We started building headboards in our free time (in a one car garage) as a way to furnish our house and make some extra money.   We quickly found out, through a very fortuitous meeting with Meg from, that there was a market for surfaces specifically built for food and product photography.  What was once a hobby quickly became a business! 

As we began to start listing surfaces on ETSY and creating relationships through social media, we found the food photography and blogger community to be VERY supportive. We have made it our commitment to serve our customers in a meaningful way, with friendship and mutual passion for the products we create.  We LOVE making our customers happy.  It's the core of what we do.

We talked to as many customers as we could and found out that a portable, affordable, durable, and cleanable photography background with an amazing finish is hard to come by.  We heard from customers struggling with actual barn doors kitchen tables as their backgrounds.  Lugging around 50 pounds of barn wood is a pain, to say the least.  Food photographers want to focus on what they do best:  styling and photographing food.  We believe that our innovative construction and design is perfectly suited for food and product photography.  Please feel free to look around and let us know what we can do to help!
