Eric Calder (Dollywood Insider 2021-2022) started shooting photography when he was in high school and fell in love with the art. After 11 years in the wedding photography business, he began searching for something more adventurous and found his new passion: amusement and theme park photography! This new hobby eventually led to the start of @between.the.parks on several social media platforms. After a visit to Dollywood in 2003, he was instantly hooked. The beauty and charm of Dollywood made it feel like a second home, and he could not wait to return! Now every chance Eric gets, he is back with camera in-hand to cover everything Dollywood has to offer. When not at Dollywood, Eric and his two teens are in South Carolina spending time with family and friends.
