Bruce Strong is a multimedia storyteller who has shot in nearly 60 countries, with Sudan added to the mix most recently. His work has been published in publications such as TIME Magazine and National Geographic and he has earned numerous awards and two fellowships.
When he's not on the field, Bruce spends a lot of time helping others learn to tell stories that matter. Last year, Bruce was honored with a 2010 Meredith Teaching Recognition Award from Syracuse University and the National Press Photographers Association's Robin F. Garland Educator Award. Bruce is most proud of his two young sons, Jack and Cole, and loves adventuring through life with his visual journalist/professor wife, Claudia.
