About Me - Nicholas Zuger

Nicholas K.A. Zuger (Nikola ┼Żuger)

Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 5 years old. I was given a toy wooden camera for Christmas and immediately began to frame  the world around me through the small, circular viewfinder. My skills began to develop from there. Soon, I would have a real camera to call my own, and by age twelve I was already getting photography gigs from close family and friends.

My love for photography stems from years of participating in Croatian folklore and years of being exposed to the natural world through camping, mountaineering, canoeing and skiing. A lot of my time is dedicated to volunteering as Liaison Officer with the National Capital Region Croatian Folklore Ensemble Croatoan, a position I was elected to in June of 2018.

Fueled by these passions, I have had the privilege of working with and learning from established photographers and naturalists like Jean-Marc Carisse and Michael Runtz.

Today I specialize in two fields: concert, fashion and portrait photography (added specialization in the  cultural dance/ethnographic scene) and nature photography (which I do from a natural history perspective).
