I have hired Eric many times for high-quality photography of the people and places of the School of Engineering. He has a great eye for detail, finding those kinds of shots that become almost iconic and that you want to use over and over. He's also a great collaborator — easy going and dependable.

Eric Swanson simply makes my job easier. He is a creative, smart, easy-going photographer that delivers beautiful images with top-notch digital files; I know I will not need to spend time color correcting or tweaking his finished images.

He somehow manages to coax beauty from the most demanding objects (large, heavy, extravagant loudspeakers and other unusual stereo components), and does so with an intimate understanding of our magazine and its readers. From coordinating shipping logistics to poring over every possible angle, highlight, and shadow, Eric is careful, dedicated, and professional. Working with him is easy, satisfying, and a complete joy.
Stephen Mejias, Assistant Editor Stereophile Magazine
Eric's knowledge of publishing and design also makes him an extraordinary partner on developing concepts that are both creative and successful. One of the finest photographers I've worked with, both in produced work and professional character.
Natalie Baca Freelance Graphic Design
I've worked with Eric for several years and highly recommend him. He's fun, thoughtful, professional, creative, hard working, and organized... and his photography excels in design, composition, and lighting. He's helped us communicate through high-quality photos that resonate with our audiences.
Tamara Williams Marketing at University of New Mexico School of Engineering
Creative, responsive and thoughtful...and above all, so easy to work with! His pricing and usage terms are clear and fair, and his images captured the essence of our product. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any commercial entity that needs to communicate to its consumers clearly and evocatively what they can expect.

We love working with Eric. He is quick to grasp our sensibilities and is comfortable working either with us or on his own. He is very professional, and knowledgeable, always helping to keep us on track regarding our purposes for photographs – how we are going to use them, the best composition, etc. Oh yes, and did I say his photographs are absolutely beautiful?
Melissa Coleman President La Puerta Originals, Inc.
We have enjoyed working with Eric Swanson for many years now. Eric is an amazing photographer who captures images beautifully through the lens. It is also just a pleasure working with him. He is fun to be around and has wonderful creative ideas that make it more valuable than just a photo shoot. Eric is also extremely organized and efficient and gets the work done promptly. Eric is a very talented photographer and we always look forward to an upcoming project that allows us to work with him!
Susan Curtis & Nicole Curtis Ammerman The Santa Fe School of Cooking
I am a visual artist and Eric has photographed my art work for many years. He is a wonderful photographer and whenI I post photos of my art work that he has taken on line I always get many comments from around the world on the quality of the photos, the color, the saturation and the contrast. Eric is very easy to work with. He is always prompt at the shoot and returns the finished product quickly. I couldn't imagine working with another photographer as his work is consistently outstanding.
Martha Iwaski Artist
I consider Eric an art-partner when documenting my work. Years ago, with a complex installation of my paper works, he found the perfect solution to present the works at their best when photographing in his studio. When shooting individual works, his method and set-up saves me time and produces great results and need no further correction. His photos of me in my studio space are poetic and I will utilize them for many years to come.
