In the past year since we launched we have received so much support from our photographers that we thought we'd start featuring them in our blogs. We came across Zach a few months ago, and since then he has been able to take some unreal photos for Toro Luna. His creative vision and passion for the great outdoors is unparalleled, and the kid truly has talent. He's only 17 years old as well..... Meet Zach:
"Hi! My name is Zach, I'm also known as @calibreus I'm a 17 year old photographer from Vancouver island, British Columbia, Canada. I picked up my first camera back in late 2015 because I wanted to start taking star photos. After researching online, I concluded that I needed a dslr/mirrorless camera to do astrophotography.
I asked my parents if we had one and fortunately we had an old Canon Rebel sitting around the house. So I started shooting with it and over time my passion for photography grew. Nowadays, I shoot with a Sony A7 with adapted film lenses. Being a student, I don't have too much money at my disposal, so by using thee film lenses I can still get good optical quality while not breaking the bank.
I love to shoot nature and landscapes, and I also enjoy doing product photos in these environments. Exploring the outdoors and being able to capture it in a unique way is always very exciting for me. And I try my best to bring out the colors in my photography through my editing. I definitely view my photography like a journey and I feel like this is just the beginning. I look forward to seeing what the future holds!"
