Zach Zamboni

Cinematographer

Raised in Maine, Zamboni studied Philosophy, Writing, and Cinematography at The University of Maine at Orono, The University of East Anglia in the UK, and The Maine Workshops.  Before shooting, he learned the art and craft of lighting as electrician and gaffer in New York’s independent feature and commercial world.

Zamboni’s body of work is award-winning and well-challenged.  Over 10,000 hours of international filming and 100 hours of documentary television creates a rare perspective on the world.  Within the extremes of climate, pace, and intensity, he formed a style blending the best documentary and fiction techniques.  Crossing genres, he brings cinematic looks to non-fiction, and the immediacy of real moments to fictional work.  This unique vision is sought by clients in Television, Documentary, Commercials, and Feature Films.

As Director/DP, Zamboni teamed up with long-time collaborator Tom Vitale to form Zamboni-Vitale, a Freelance Commercial Directing Team.  Style, and a massive amount of experience has not only brought them a deep knowledge of how to make things happen, but how to do it beautifully.

CV
