Action sports and adventure photographer, Zach Pearson grew up hiking in the white mountains of New Hampshire and fell in love with nature at a young age. This love for the natural world then merged with a love of visual storytelling and a new path was laid out before me. His fate was sealed when his grandmother handed him down her Sony A100, a relatively outdated but perfectly functional DSLR camera. With camera in hand, Zach knew his destiny was in waves, mountains, and faraway destinations.
Through his photography Zach aims to portray the connection between humans and the natural elements. The reason he pursues action sports and adventure photography. Outdoor adventure sports, such as surfing and rock climbing tend to transcend the typical label of “sport” and showcase humans harnessing the magnitude and power of nature; humans attempting to go toe to toe with something much stronger and more powerful than themselves.
"This is what I attempt to capture with my photography; the epic, mythical power of nature and adventure".
Currently living in Portugal, Zach is also the founder of Zach Pearson Photo.
