Zack states that he’s been actively pursuing photography as a career for twenty years and it’s been a hell of a trip thus far. He’s risen and fallen a number of times and truly feels that he’s finally reached base camp. On a clear day, he can see his goal. On the not so clear days, he is still climbing and still pushing. Zack highlights that he is still pushing himself, his subjects and his craft.

These days, Zack thinks of himself more as a director than a photographer. He tends to work with subjects who aren’t that comfortable in front of the camera and direct them from start to finish.

He’s traveled through 49 of the 50 states and five of the seven continents. From a boardroom in New York to a film set in Los Angeles, to a farm in Texas, to the streets of Hong Kong, to the high Atlas Mountains of Morocco, he pursues photography with everything he has.

Jarmo was born in December 1961 in Finland where he grew up before moving to Portugal with my family at age 7. He could have been found on the family farm running on hills amongst chickens and farm animals till age 16. Later, he served in the military for my native country of Finland. In the early 80s he spent a decade in front of the camera working as a fashion model for clients like Pierre Cardin & Hugo Boss until Bruce Weber, a well-known photographer, actually sparked my interests to move behind the camera, take a look stuff through the lens, and start exploring the world via viewfinder. Jarmo then discovered a true passion for photography & the rest is history… The Entertainment business has also been close to his heart. In his own recording studio since 1992, he and his crew produce music, videos, and short movies all around the world. Jarmo believes that hard work, and determination keeps us motivated in this highly competitive business.

Whether it’s shooting campaigns, creating libraries, directing commercials, 360s, or shooting personal work, Troy approaches each with the enthusiasm he had on his first job. Troy receives mail in Brooklyn, NY but resides in random airports around the globe.

Titles and labels belong to books and soup cans respectively. To me they don’t make the man, his reputation and integrity do. My most important job is being the best father I can to Aidan, McKenna, and Emma and giving them the best foundation for happiness and success in life. And to attempt to give my wife a fraction of the joy that she has brought to me and our family.

Calumet Digital Solutions (4 Years) Area Sales Manager
Phase One US (3 Years) Manager, Prolab Imaging (2 Years)
