Great Sand Dunes NP - 4x5 Velvia 50 drum scan
Zach is a young guy just bursting with talent. He goes to cool places to shoot, sleeps in his car and brings back images like this.

Zach is the kind of photographer I aspire to be – he understands his equipment and his medium and has a broad awareness of photography theory, but most importantly he knows how to extract a story and make compelling photographs.

I think it is hard not to be captured by the technical details in photography, especially starting out, but Zach is doing it all on muscle memory. He’s an amazing photographer!

(he also happens to be a pretty nice guy, too… 🙂 )

  1. Hey thanks Lee! I really appreciate the post. The photo really irks me now though, actually has since I posted it! Needs a couple of color adjustment layers to turn the purple more blue like the original while keeping the sky and mountains neutral! Anyway, thanks for the kind post. Makes me want to go somewhere and shoot.
