Lens Flare - Zach Griswold by Skateboarding Photo

Lens Flare: Zach Griswold

Every month, we’ll be featuring the work of selected photographers….


In this issue, we’d like to introduce Zach Griswold. Zach is from Vermont in the good ol’ US of A. What we really liked about his work is how it represents where he’s from: when you think of that part of the world, you think about natural colour tones, especially in Autumn / Fall, and his photographs certainly evoke that kind of visual stimulation. Cool beans – over to you, Zach:

“I’ve been shooting photos for about 3 years now. My main focus is skateboarding and snowboarding, with weddings, portraits, and product photo shoots to make cash on the side. Right now I’m a chef at an Italian restaurant, working part time and taking classes.

I base my whole life around photography, and love meeting new people to shoot. I got into photography when my girlfriend bought me a camera for Christmas one year, after that, I exploded into it. I was constantly criticized by my (then) co-worker Mike McDonald, only to become better and stop shooting garbage.

I switched to Canon from Sony, and got into off-camera lighting, that’s where my career took off. My photos were finally coming out how I wanted, and the more confident I grew, the better I became.

I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge of the technical aspect of photography, and practice makes perfect – so I’ve been out shooting as much as possible. Within the next 5 years, I plan on completely switching over to being strictly a professional photographer.

With the skills I’ve developed in only 3 or less years, I know that with more than twice that I can do anything I want. The only part that sucks about the situation, is that I live in Vermont where about 10 really good skaters live, and that’s it!

Hopefully you’ll all see my work in years to come, and that this is just the start….”
