Zachary Snellenberger’s 19-year-old world as viewed through his lens is crispy lit in vivacious, yet muted jewel tones. Understanding the quality of being able to stop time that photography allows – the time and consideration of the roll of film no longer a factor – he seems to taste life in every shot. With Instagram feeds and smart phone shots, photography to some is starting to seem like an “everyone can do it” hobby. And everyone can do it as a hobby, but Snellenberger is a prime example of the someone who does it for a living, create moments with a camera, develops that moment, and turns it in to what can now only be called “legit” photography.
Below, we’ve included a few favorite frames, including some of his concert photography. Regarding music Zachary says, “I don’t listen to new music anymore. I’ve stuck with Radiohead, Memoryhouse, and Twin Sister for a while now, but what’s the point in spilling who I am to everyone on the internet. It spoils real life.” Although that music is new, and we think spilling things about yourself on the Internet is a good thing for artists, we can all agree that his talent is stellar and his eye is unique.
