In our latest installment of our popular 'An Evening With' series, we are proud to partner with Space For Arts, Samy's Camera, Workbook, Yodelist and Naked Eye Studio to present a talk with Zach Anderson, whose imagery explores a fresh take on story-telling, in conversation with his well-established photo agent, Candace Gelman.
Zach Anderson was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest–specifically Washington and Idaho. Raised by a photographer pops and an artist mother, creativity was always nurtured in his house. Zach’s early photographs were of his quirky musician and skater friends. Through this personal work, Zach discovered his other passion in life–music and going to shows and festivals.
After graduating from high school, Zach left Idaho to study photography and film at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design in Santa Fe, NM–transferring his junior year to complete his education in San Francisco before moving to NYC to intern in the photo department at Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal. After his stint there he moved to Austin, Texas. Fueled by his love of music and the opportunity to assist a photographer he admired, Zach spent a number of years in Austin assisting full time and building his body of work. Zach now lives in Los Angeles–maintaining his same passions and unique eye for story telling.
His client list includes Vans, Viacom, Infiniti Motors, Ford, Lincoln, Yeti and American Airlines to name a few. Zach has been awarded Luezer's Archive: 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide for 2018 and 2020.
