Not only has Eric won numerous of his own National and Regional awards, including Murrows, Emmys, and NPPA, but he has also led our crews to win three National Press Photographers Association small market “Station of the Year” awards. Eric has not only led the way, but he has also been down in the trenches throughout the years, including covering one of the most challenging shoots of all, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. He covered this extremely cold and grueling two-week race from the ground and by air for 12 years.

Besides continuing to mentor his own staff, Eric is also a respected community mentor. He has worked with students in Alaska on shooting/editing training and has been a mentor as part of the Anchorage School District Gifted Mentorship Program. He has also worked on Girl Scout projects and is always willing to give new photographers, even at stations in remote areas, some tips when he sees them struggling out in the field.
