Growing up in a small town outside of Boston, Zach Salsman developed a passion for film at a young age. After attending film school, Zach shot his first indie feature, “The Mercury Cycle,” before relocating to Los Angeles. Early in his career, he shot numerous documentary pieces that took him all over the world. He has shot in Micronesia, Guam, South Africa, Europe, Asia, and South America. Those early pieces have since landed him freelance contracts with clients such as ESPN, NFL Network, U.S. Soccer Federation and Major League Soccer.
Zach’s recent work caught the attention of director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer) and he was brought aboard to shoot second unit on Fuqua’s 2015 feature, “Southpaw.” Zach has been continually praised for his ability to not only connect with and understand a director’s vision, but to translate that vision into a cinematic language that enhances the story as a whole.
