Hey! I’m Erika Townsley. I am a photographer and artist living and working in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. After graduating with my BFA and a major in Photography from Kendall College of Art and Design, I started my very own photography business.

In addition to running my own photo business, I co-own Light Gallery + Studio with my partner Matthew Provoast, and spend time curating and scheduling events at our small shop in Heartside. Life has moved me in the direction of loving to work with small business owners, community engagement, and city development, and I feel so lucky to be involved with these things through my photography.

Have a project you’d like to throw my way? Send me a line on my Contact page on my website and we can get together and grab a cup of coffee, or a pint if you’re into that sort of thing. I hope to hear from you soon!
