Death of the LG Rumor
After years of ridicule for still using T9 for texting and the inevitable failure of the charging port, I finally had to bid farewell to my LG Rumor cellphone. Instead of just throwing this old faithful companion into a recycled electronics box, I felt a more moving tribute was due. It's time for the Rumor to meet it's maker.... with the help of the P+S Technik's Weisscam at 800 FPS!

During the Fall of 2015, I began work on a series of self-portraits that fused dream-like imagery with the use of artificial lighting in outdoor locations. I shot all of these without assistance while on a 2-month trip spanning Sweden, Germany, France, UK and Iceland. This is just a selection of just a few of my favorites. And yes, it was hard to breathe in the bag, but not as hard as trusting that no one was going to steal an unattended camera.
ABOUT ZACK... I MEAN, ME...
Quite Simply, I love cameras. Almost as much as having solid facial hair… Almost as much as writing my own bios in the 3rd person… well, I’d actually prefer not to do that.
Following the completion of my B.F.A. in Cinematography from Chapman University (Orange, CA), I furthered my passion for working with the vast tools of film making with a nearly decades long career at Clairmont Camera followed by a short stint at the American Film Institute as a HD technician / senior engineer. At the end of 2013, I joined the freelancer world, working as cameraman / operator on a variety of projects ranging from a music documentary series and corporate toy commercials to the yearly AVN Awards Show (I’ll let you look that one up). When I wasn't behind the lens, you could also find me on the weekend, projecting movies at the Hollywood Forever cemetery for the last 4 seasons.
In 2016, I made the move from Los Angeles to Berlin, Germany to further explore shooting short form projects as well as documenting the never-ending plethora of creatives this city has to offer. July of 2017, I joined the team at the Berlin-based, See You Rent GmbH, sepcializing in all the latest toys that digital film making has to offer. You can find more information and our complete catalog at www.seeyourent.de.
Hast du eine Vision? Ich habe die Kamera… Seriously, let’s make something.
