“…my chief strength in this genre is improvisation,” says Zach Alan. He adds, “Whenever a location doesn’t quite pan out, it’s a good feeling to still pull off a shot I can be proud of.” Everyone should admire Zach’s light painting photographs, not only for how interesting they are but because of the time and effort he puts into creating them. While viewing them, we feel like we’re looking into another world, his creative world. We’re big fans of this type of photography. It takes us away from the pressures of everyday life and injects some fantasy and awe into our minds. We describe the work as fire, not just because we’re cool, but because they literally are. Not content with an orthodox lighting approach, he introduces actual fire to his larger than life scenes! Tired of asking, “How does he do it?” we thought it would be better to contact him and find out.
