Zach grew up in the Pacific Northwest, specifically Washington and Idaho. Raised by a photographer pops and an artist mother, creativity was always nurtured in his house. Zach grew up photographing his quirky musician and skater friends and that’s when he discovered at a young age his other passion in life, music and going to shows/festivals. He left Idaho at 18, right after graduating high school to study photography and film at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design in Santa Fe, NM. Transferring his junior year for the rest of his Education in San Francisco then moved off to NYC to intern in the photo department at Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal. After his stint there he moved to Austin, Texas. Fueled by his love for music (last count he has been to over 1500 shows) and the opportunity to assist a photographer he admired. Zach spent a few years there assisting full time and building his body of work. Now back home on the West Coast, currently living in Los Angeles. Same passions, different city.
