Zach Snellenberger - Our in-house Photography Wizard - Feature on

Meet Mr. Zach Snellenberger (aka @zach_snell) Do yourself a favor and put down whatever you're doing and give a scroll through his handle. Zach's ability to create a mood through visual capture, is unrivaled! You can almost assign a soundtrack to every image he produces, through his use of colors, emotion and tones, that he meticulously pulls from every photo he snaps. From places to faces, Zach creates deep moods in his work. So take a second, kick your feet up, maybe even pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy a little visual vacation, courtesy of our friend Zach...

QTell us a little bit about yourself Zach?

A I am a Michigan born & raised photographer living in Washington. I moved here when I was 21 to start full time as Media Manager for IM.

Q How long have you been shooting for Imperial Motion?

A Spencer (Co-Founder) reached out in 2013 to use one of my photos in an ad for the last Transworld Surf issue, and my first gig was the 2014 Fall Lookbook. It's been a great 8 years!

Q How would you describe your photography?

AAtmospheric comes to mind. It's always changing, but rooted in the same nature. Often creating a mood based off of the subject, whatever that may be at the time. Regardless of the subject, my goal is to draw out a feeling from the viewer. To bring the viewer to the place where I am at mentally and/or physically.

Q What is your dream photo assignment?

A I think our trip to Bali for the Spring 19 Collection was my dream.. great crew & cultural experience. I've always wanted to go to New Zealand.. so any assignment there would be at the top of my list. Someday!
