Jeff Z.

Somewhere between obsessing over the fine Swedish machinery of the 1980s era Volvos and finding the best new spot to ride for the most epic tricks to be photographed, lies Jeff Z. Part human navigational system and part photographic visionary, he is the go to guy if you want to shoot some polished BMX photos. Hands down, the most prepared person to ride or shoot with, a bonafide “BMX Boy Scout” if you will. But don’t ask him where the nearest MacDonald’s is because he is a level five vegan. Here are some examples of what he carries at all times in his car: half of the B&H catalog ready to be carried on his back, extra tires and tubes, safety pins, hedge clippers, orange Tic-Tacs, Kleenex, etc. Because he knows that whether it’s a flat tire, ripped jeans, an overgrown bush, or some funky breathe, the most random things can prevent a rider from pulling their trick and from Jeff walking away with another incredible photo. You can call him obsessive, crazy, over-prepared, or just call him the Associate Editor/Photo Editor at Ride BMX.
