An editorial photographer covering the Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C. areas, Eric Kruszewski specializes in reportage, documentary, travel and portraiture photography. He is a regular contributor to National Geographic Creative’s unique collection of imagery.

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 45 countries, and documented such issues as Haiti’s earthquake recovery and water crises in Mozambique. He has received many awards including honors from the International Photo Awards and Travel Photographer of the Year.

Eric’s work has been published by National Geographic (online), National Geographic Expeditions, CNN, ABC News, AARP, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, AAA Living, The Huffington Post and Slate, among others.
