ZAK

Zak Melms

Owner / Director of Photography

A life-long Alaskan Zak is driven to meet every photographic opportunity with a curiosity and a certainty that each day offers the chance to grow his craft. He possesses the kind of attitude and diverse skill set that are essential to translating abstract creative ideas to concrete artistic reality. Whether flying a drone in the subzero arctic temperatures filming an Inupiat whale hunt, or making the best use of unobtrusive handheld work to find small grace notes amongst school children in a Nepalese village. Zak’s quiet framing creates transcendent, timeless images that augment production value on every project with which he is involved.

His work has been featured by outlets including National Geographic, Discovery and the History Channel.
