Erin Paul Donovan is a prolific environmental and outdoor scenic photographer whose work is focused predominantly on the out-of-doors within New England. His work has taken him all over the region and into the depths of New Hampshire in particular; from the most popular of trails to the most remote bushwhacks. It is fitting that Erin Paul has amassed an extensive number of hiking accomplishments through the course of his work as a photographer.
Over the past 25 years, Erin Paul has logged many miles on the New England trail system. However, in 2003 Erin Paul divorced himself from the process of ‘keeping track’ of his exploits. He finds his own satisfaction within the collective journey itself.
Despite his choice to discontinue with the principals of hiking lists, Erin Paul’s hiking history can still be colored with some details. In order to capture the impressive photographs that Erin Paul has come to be known for, he has hiked each of the New Hampshire 48 4,000 footers at least seven times (plus a winter and night series), and ascended Mount Washington, the tallest peak in the North Eastern United States, over 100 times. Erin Paul has also completed the New Hampshire 52 With a View, and Trailwrights (trail work needed). Given the astounding number of miles Erin Paul has traversed in his career, he agrees that it’s safe to say that he has completed the White Mountain Redlines.
Erin Paul subscribes to the ideals of low-impact hiking, and is a passionate advocate for ethical hiking practices. He shares his dedication to these principals with other hiking enthusiasts in many ways, but namely through his work.
As you explore ScenicNH Photography, please keep in mind Erin Paul is a working photographer who photographs the White Mountains environment. It has been many years since he last pursued any hiking list.
