About

Hi, it’s Zach. On this website I post for friends and curious web folk, too.

You can read this FAQ on why I wrote and produced The Photographers Field Guide to Beijing, and why it’s free.

Rather talk shop? Here is my up-to-date list of tools.


I’m based in Texas, and work as a ranch hand. 🍃 Sunshine is good.

After studying Chinese in Minnesota and at Shanghai’s Huashida, I got my start making photos for NGO clients in East Asia.

I grew up in the US, China and Japan.
