A B O U T
We are Zachary and Ashley Vemwell, a fine art photography duo currently creating work along the PNW. With our values of minimalism, sustainability, and organic, holistic wellness, we strive to create and thrive as consciously and sustainably as possible. We have a passion for the analog way of living, and through spending our time living slowly and mindfully, we enjoy our quiet life together experiencing the beauty of the natural world. In addition to our fervor for film photography, we avidly pursue yoga, meditation, reading, hiking, cycling, organic plant-based cooking, and all things holistic health - to name just a few important things!
Film is the truest representation of the world, and that is why it is our medium of choice. While a digital camera interprets a photograph by code, a film camera captures a photograph by chemical emulsion on light sensitive film. Through the process of film, we are able to capture delicately intimate moments in time in their truest tonality, perception, depth, and motion.
Our arsenal consists of fully manual and mechanical medium format (Hasselblad) and 35mm (Leica) equipment. We exclusively shoot with black and white film as it gives our work a timeless, dream like aesthetic. In addition, we personally hand develop and process all of our film, and currently work hands on with both a digital printer and framer to produce the most sustainable and highest quality fine art prints and albums available.
