The years have given me a good amount of experience both in front of the lens, and behind it.
Therefore, I not only have great respect for the vision and protocols needed to create an amazing shoot, but I can collaborate with you to make all of the details fall into place beautifully.

I began with architectural and theatrical design, constructed them into reality, and then found myself being regularly called to the forefront.  I have joked over the years that I am a ‘torso’ for hire, but these opportunities have been really wonderful and I have enjoyed bringing my energy to performances, films, and artistic compositions.

Having both managed creative staff, and owned an art gallery in Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District for a number of years, I have respect for your professionalism, time and budget; as I trust you will similarly have for me.

Note: Most of my work is paid, but I am open to trade and modest honorarium for projects with distinct artistic vision benefiting non-profits, friends, or the art community.  I particularly enjoy trade with fashion designers that have a bias toward urban tribal, steampunk and/or fetish.

"Zal is one of the most emotion-visible models we've worked with to date. He has the ability to convince the camera of his intentions, and convey realities by force of will. A pleasure to work with you Zal, and we look forward to working with you again!"
