Where will I live?

February 14, 2019By ZachHouse No Comments

I had a slow start this morning.  I woke up way too early, finally fell back asleep and didn’t eat breakfast until around 9am.  After a couple of pancakes, I checked out Mule Expedition Outfitters in Issaquah, WA.  If my house sells next month, I am going to need a place to sleep.  I am … Read More

Roger’s 2018 Halloween Party

October 29, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

I survived the party y’all. In truth, the beverage of choice on tap was Bug Light, so I did not even finish a glass.  If I am drinking a light beer, I prefer Coors Light.  They did have an abundance of Jello shots in the fridge, so I might have helped myself to 8 or … Read More

Hiking Summit Lake

October 11, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Yesterday I needed a reset.  I needed to get away from all the noise, the chaos and just be.  Going camping solo is very therapeutic, albeit lonely, for me. I loaded up my Tacoma with a small tent, my camping pad, sleeping bag, pillow, water bottle, a couple Clif bars, firewood, my laptop and that … Read More

On the Road Again

August 6, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Here is a quick recap of my travels over the last month. I am currently on the road in Idaho, heading back to Seattle. I crossed the country in July, 6k miles in 7 days. I got home from that trip, had 4 days off before I flew to Dutch Harbor, Alaska for a week. … Read More

Heather at Lake Wilderness

July 2, 2018By Zachportraits 3 Comments

As they say, time flies.  It’s been a month since Heather and I got together and did our second photo shoot.  We left her high-strung puppy Lulu at home this time and just concentrated on photographing Heather.  She has been an absolute blast to work with.  When my client is unsure of themselves and lacks … Read More

Nintendo Game Boy and Tetris

July 1, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Yesterday I attended the Toy and Geek Festival at the Puyallup (aka Washington State) Fairgrounds.  There was everything from toys to movie cars to actors signing autographs.  Anime, Pop Funkos and board games do not hold my interest in general.  I really enjoy events like these for the people watching.  Out of all the large … Read More

Mini Photo Sessions Week 1: Owens Beach

May 30, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Recently I decided to start shooting weekly mini sessions at parks all over the PNW.  The mini sessions are an easy and fun way for me to promote myself, and get the word out about my photography.  You are not going to hire me to photograph your wedding just based off of my online portfolio.  … Read More

Road Trip Rescue

May 24, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

For this story we have to go back in time 10 years.  My best friend Eric (RIP buddy) sent me a Craigslist ad.  He knew that I had been searching out a VW Rabbit Swallowtail for some time.  There was one for sale for a few hundred dollars.  The car was just a rolling shell, … Read More

Roadtrip Part 2: The Journey Home

May 9, 2018By Zachdasphoto No Comments

Last week I left off my story at the local gas station, with an ice cream and a tea.  I headed towards Highway 101 from just outside of Long Beach, Washington.  If you have never experienced the beauty of Highway 101, then I apologize for not stopping and taking photos.  Over the years I have traveled … Read More

Heather and Lulu

May 7, 2018By Zachportraits 1 Comment

Recently an old friend of mine contacted me about taking photos of her and her dog.  Allow me to admit that I am not an animal photographer.  I agreed to the shoot because I wanted to catch up with my old friend Heather, and to challenge myself in a new area of photography.  The long … Read More
