Zack Arias is an editorial music photographer based in Atlanta, GA.
His specialty is niched in press and publicity photography for the music industry. As his music work continues to expand nationally, his studio in Atlanta works within a wider spectrum of the entertainment industry producing headshots and fashion portfolios.
Zack\'s first run at being a freelance photographer left him heavily in debt and placed his family on the edge of destruction. He came to a place in his career that required him to put the cameras down and take a “job.” After two years of selling off gear to help pay rent and fix beater cars, Zack was given a chance to come back to the photography industry as a second shooter at weddings for Marc Climie (www.climie.com). He took a D100 that Marc bought him, a 285 flash, an ample amount of faith, and quit his job at Kinkos in October of 2003. He was determined to do things differently this time around.
Zack has since built a strong and thriving business without going into a single dollar of debt! His minimalist approach to photography turned into a workshop in 2005 that he now teaches nationwide. It has become so popular that dates for the workshop regularly sell out months in advance and the forum on has workshop site has over 1,000 registered users.
