University of Michigan
Assistant Director of Photography
Eric Bronson's professional journey as a photographer has taken him from southeast Michigan to Alaska and Maui before returning to Ann Arbor. Now the Assistant Director at Michigan Photography, the University of Michigan's professional photography unit, Eric was named the 2013 & 2015 University Photographers' Association of America (UPAA.org) Photographer of the Year. A large portion of his work for Michigan Photography involves shooting sports, and in 2009 he had an image selected as one of Sports Illustrated's Pictures of the Year.
His visual storytelling and environmental portraiture is now one of the central components of an ongoing university marketing campaign called “This is Michigan". This series features Eric’s work showing the citizens of the state of Michigan the benefits of having a large, internationally acclaimed research university right in their backyard. Eric also manages the visuals for the university's social media team. Before coming to Michigan, Eric worked at a daily newspaper and in the Ford Motor Co. photo studio and uses experiences from both in his day-to-day work at the university.
