Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor
An editorial photographer and videographer based in Washington, D.C., Eric Kruszewski's multimedia work focuses on reportage and travel. His work is represented by National Geographic Creative, and he is a regular contributor to National Geographic's Image Collection.
Eric’s initial education was through technical schools, thus leading to employment dismantling chemical weaponry, securing biological agents and processing nuclear waste. But trips to sensory-overloaded Central Asia rattled his tech foundation and uncovered a passion for photography.
After a 10-year stint in engineering, Eric resigned (March 2012) and pursued his photography career. Now working globally, Eric has traveled throughout almost 50 countries, and documented such issues as Haiti’s earthquake recovery, water crises in Mozambique and environmental pollution in Canada. He has received many awards including honors from the International Photo Awards and Travel Photographer of the Year.
Eric's personal work has been published by National Geographic (online), National Geographic Traveler, CNN, ABC News, The Huffington Post and Newsweek, among others. He has traveled with Lindblad / National Geographic Expeditions to Alaska, The Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica and Panama and has led photo workshops in Morocco, Paris, Prague, Yellowstone and Iceland.
