Steve Zmak covers events by combining a documentary approach with a conceptual advertising style. He doesn’t just document events, he illustrates the energy and spirit of the events. Zmak’s open and friendly personality invites attendees to let their enthusiasm explode before his lens, and his stealthiness allows him to blend in and not interfere with the flow of activities. He gets in close, inside the inner circle so you feel like you were there.
