Zack is an award winning photographer specializing in fine art landscape photography. "Art is in my blood. My father is a well known poster artist and painter. My mom is a painter, and print maker and my brother is a designer at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan. Art is a way of life for my family, and I will hopefully pass it on to my daughter as well."
"The love of nature is also something that my family and I are passionate about. I’ve been hiking, biking, rock climbing and backpacking since I was little. My parents taught me to appreciate the beauty in nature and to help preserve it for all to enjoy."
