Eric Politzer is a Los Angeles-based editorial portrait photographer working primarily in the areas of music, dance, fitness, hospitality and higher education.
Eric Politzer Photography was created to bring together 20 years of working with community based organizations with a life-long love for the visual arts, especially photography. After many years as an senior manager in non-profit organizations dedicated to "giving voice" to clients who were not receiving adequate services, Eric decided to represent them visually by creating compelling images that tell the stories with empathy and dignity. This approach has come to motivate all of his work, whether it be for commercial clients, performing arts organizations, or in-depth documentary projects.
Eric worked primarily in multi-cultural environments, often for organizations who worked with clients who lived on the margins of society. He learned how to work with people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to develop cogent messaging that best represented the mission of the organizations. He brings the same spirit of respect, collaboration, open-mindedness and patience to all his photography clients.
Eric travels extensively for work, over the past few years spending significant time in Cuba, New York, Madrid, and London. For the last three years he and his close Cuban colleague Ramses Batista have been commissioned by the Cuban National Ballet to mount major exhibitions celebrating the dancers of the Ballet.

Eric Politzer is a Los Angeles-based photographer specialising in sports and wellness, dance, music, and corporate. In the last couple of months, his work has been recognised as a Category winner at the Siena Photo Awards, Shortlist at the Paris Photo Awards, and Shortlist at the Spotlight Awards.
Eric is a portraitist at heart, and his approach to shooting sports, fitness, and wellness is founded on a deep respect for all of his subjects. Every image is intended to express as much as possible about the subject: their personality, emotions and goals. Every photo starts with the subject, and then environment, lighting and composition are used as narrative devices to help tell their story.
Eric’s passion for storytelling ranges from individual photos to documentary projects. His most involved sports project was The Legends of Cuban Baseball, a three years effort to celebrate the most idolised living Cuban baseball players, who never left the country to seek fame and fortune in the Major Leagues. He was granted unparalleled access for a foreign photographer to training facilities, stadiums, players and coaches all across Cuba.
