Long time friend and super talented photographer Zack Smith recently opened his brand new studio space and gallery off of historic Magazine St. Zack has come a long was since we first met and he’s the epitome of professionalism and hustle. Zack has photographed and captured every inch of New Orleans and shares his passion for image making through his many workshops and his editorial work. 

Zack’s current exhibition titled “The Battlefield Oak : A Year in Photographs” chronicles his own inspirational personal journey photographing a very special tree in St. Bernard Parish over the course of a year. The images are each unique in their composition and lighting and shows a dedication to his craft. Whether it’s editorial, headshots, live music, or fine art photography, there’s not a whole lot Zack hasn’t captured or isn’t willing to do so. Below you’ll find some of my favorite images from Zack’s Instagram page.
