Description:My name is Eric Magnussen, I received a BFA in studio arts(emphasis in photography) in 2003 from CU Boulder. More recently, my love of photography led me to Orange County, CA for a photo editor position at Boost Mobile a prepaid cell-phone division of Sprint/Nextel. At Boost Mobile my duties evolved rapidly over the last four and a half years, affording me a wide range of challenging opportunities. I am an adaptable “Jack-of-all-trades” - in the van, in the cubicle and from print to web. I am a well-rounded photographer comfortable in-studio or on-location with advanced retouching skills, well versed in adobe photoshop and illustrator. I have also worked closely with Boost Mobile’s team manager and athletes promoting the brand and individual athletes with tour and event documentation, blogging, media relations, photoshoot planning and execution. I have managed ad schedules, photo acquisition budgets and expense accounts. Though I was initially hired to source and purchase action and lifestyle imagery, my duties quickly expanded to include shooting many of the photographs used in print and web of Boost Mobile athletes myself. I also photographed product, packaging, in-store displays and whatever else needs to be shot. I even wrote and shot an article published in Transworld Motocross magazine documenting Boost Mobile and Etnies motocross team riders on the Two-Wheeled Tour Two- a subject I'm hardly an expert in but which was an interesting challenge. I have recently returned to Colorado, and I am excited for more challenges and opportunities in a place where my heart truly resides.
