Zack was raised on photo sets. His mom is a hair and make-up stylist and it was his grandma who gave him his first camera. In 2015, he wanted to do more than just show up to set and shoot. He wanted to put all of his creativity and design skills to use. So he moved to New York City, leaving Dallas behind, to co-found Dugud Lab as Creative Director and Key Photographer. His passions are connecting with people and telling great stories.
