Zack Smith Photography Consultation and Training Program

TESTIMONIALS for ZACK SMITH Photography Consulting and Training

"I was so impressed with Zack's innate ability to teach in a style that worked for me. He explained camera functions in analogies that made perfect sense to me. I had several One on One courses with Zack and it has taken my photography to a whole new level! "Carol Bailey, Digital 101 workshop participant
"I was fortunate to have a one on one session with Zack in the early stages of a portrait project I was working on.  His insight and critique was great and much needed to help realize the vision I had in my head.  The points he made were right on track and helped me correct a few key points I needed to work on before it was too late.  It was great to partner with Zack and his professional expertise, I would highly recommend a session." - Eric Nunez
"Zack is both a highly skilled and talented photographer and an excellent teacher. His teaching approach is thoughtful and organized, and his delivery is clear and enthusiastic. I appreciate that he is quick to understand and address my needs as a photography student. Zack is also helpful and encouraging in his comments" Diane Danthony, photographer and recent One on One Photography Training Participant.

Photography Consulting and Training

Zack Smith Photography


I have been a photography instructor and mentor in the New Orleans area since 2002 and have always found the time to educate the community around me. I am constantly mentoring amateur and professional photographers locally and around the United States and I feel there are no secrets in creating stunning images and the brand around them. Once we unlock the ideas and refine the passion in each photographer we can reach new levels of visual storytelling and personal business growth.
