Erin Manning is a woman like no other. She is an educator, author, and television personality who has an interesting story to tell about the beginning of her career.
Apart from all this, she is also the wife of a famous American sports TV and boxing commentator – Max Kellerman. The couple has been married for many years, and contrary to what is typical for celebrity marriages, there was no controversy afterward.
Here is their story as a couple; how they walked and walked through the tides of marriage as one couple. But first, we want to familiarize ourselves with everything there is to know about Erin.
Erin Manning – Bio
Erin was probably born sometime in the late 70s or 80s, her actual date and place of birth has remained a fact known only to her and perhaps to her husband in a broader sense. Likewise, she has not seen fit to reveal details of her family members, whether or not she has siblings, and what schools she attended before she went to college. Sadly, this is in contrast to her husband, whose background details are well known.
Erin started as a photographer quite early in life. After reading a book called “The Family of Man”, she became interested in photography. The book was an ambitious photographic exhibition curated by Edward Steichen, the Luxembourg-American painter, photographer, art gallery and museum curator. This happened when Erin was 7 years old, but even at such a young age, she knew that she wanted to make a career out of photography and pursued it.
Manning began her career as a portrait and stock photographer. At the same time, she secured a position with the private visual media publishing company, Getty Images, Inc. Erin specialized in lifestyle images, and her mastery of this field served the needs of clients such as Bank of America, various organizations, and individuals in the health care industry, Disney, AT&T, and of course lifestyle magazines.
Over time, Erin Manning became the host of the DIY network show Enable Your Home, operated by Discovery Inc. After hosting this show, she was given another role as host of the DIY Network show The Whole Picture series. In the series, which ran from 2005 to 2009, Manning was aptly introduced as the digital photo expert for photo enthusiasts. While hosting the series, she created educational video content and articles in 2007. This was done in partnership with Canon USA, Inc; a Japanese-owned multinational imaging and optical products company, SanDisk; a manufacturer of flash memory products, Adobe Inc; a U.S. multinational computer software company, and F.J. Westcott; a company that develops innovative lighting solutions for all styles of photography and film-making.
Apart from working with multinational companies in various capacities, Max Kellerman’s wife has written down her knowledge of photography and the business of photography in 3 books. She is the author of “Portrait and Candidate Photography”, followed by “Making Money with Your Digital Photography” and “Portrait and Candidate Photography: Photo Workshop, 2nd Edition’. Of the three books, the first was published in 2007, while the last two were published in 2011. The global publisher Wiley, known entirely as John Wiley & Sons, is responsible for the publication of all three books by Erin Manning.
Family – Husband, Kids
Sometime in 1994, Max Kellerman and his college sweetheart Erin Manning became husband and wife. Since then the two have been married without any negative stories after their marriage. Their union produced three children named Esther Kellerman, Sam Kellerman, and Mira Kellerman.
Their son Sam Kellerman was named after Max’s late brother Sam Kellerman. According to Max, the late Sam was the best writer of his age before his death. He was found dead in his apartment in the 1400 block of Vista Street in Los Angeles. After investigating what led to his death, James Butler, a former professional boxer (1996 to 2004), was arrested in connection with the murder. He later confessed to the murder of Sam and was sentenced to 29 years in prison.
