Travel Cinematographer Zach Zamboni: A Week In The Life

20120828-215148.jpgGrowing up, you would have been hard pressed to find me without a camera close by. I loved taking pictures. When I was eight years old, I saw a television show that captured my imagination. It was a behind the scenes look at the art and craft of filmmaking called “Movie Magic.” That show changed my life, because I knew right then that I wanted to be a cinematographer.

23 years later, while my career path has taken me through cinematography and into other media realms, I still love the art of cinematography. And, as you know, dear reader, I am also a lover of travel. So when Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations came on air, I was hooked.

It wasn’t until I moved to Maine and fell in love with the state that I realized there was a connection between Maine and No Reservations. One of the show’s cinematographers was a native Mainer. Zach Zamboni joined the show a few seasons in, lensing some of the best travel television ever produced, and garnering 2 Emmy awards in the process. I immediately became a fan.

So when I read this article the other day about a few days in the life of Zamboni, written from his perspective, it immediately conjured up memories of my exploits as a cinematographer, director of photography, and cameraman. The post is part journal entry, part stream of conscious, and all fascinating. Take a read.
