About Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, you were more likely to find Zach Ancell sprinting laps around a track than taking pictures. It wasn’t until he attended college that he picked up a camera and started photographing his teammates. As Zach’s athletic career came to a close he turned his focus to photography as a way to stay connected to the sports world which has been his lifelong passion. What resulted from this combination was heroic portraits from an athletes’s point of view. By day, you’re likely to find Zach laying in a puddle of water as a runner hurdles over him or perched atop a ladder in studio trying to find the perfect angle. He’s always searching for the best possible way to highlight unique athletic movements, no matter what it takes. By night, he’s behind the computer retouching images and piecing together elaborate composites. He loves being able to have his hands on the image from initial concept all the way through to the final product. Zach is West Coast based splitting most of his time between Portland and Los Angeles.
