Welcome to our new series of Shorts honoring our contributors. Without each and every one of them Eskapee would be a pretty boring blank canvas and it’s important for us to recognise the people who have created all our content. Over the coming months and years we will be showcasing every one of our contributors and through 15 fun and at times deep questions, and 10 of their favourite photos (each with their own story), we hope you’ll be able to find out a little more about the people behind the stories.
First up, we’d like to introduce Zach Faulkner, who lives just outside Keene, New Hampshire, in the USA. Zach’s stories on Eskapee are The Happiest, Grease Stains, Lads On Tour, and Funsuck and has been contributing to Eskapee since the very early days. His passion and enthusiasm (as well as promptness) makes our job a whole lot easier and he’s definitely someone we have come to rely on to deliver the goods – thanks Zach.
Zach’s photos and words below share a little bit of his private life and the people and places that are important to him, and while Eskapee isn’t a platform for racing the majority of Zach’s photographic life is around the world of downhill racing and it’s that world that provides the current path and creativity for Zach’s life as a professional photographer.
Who is Zach Faulkner?
Zach Faulkner is a late-twenties bike nerd who enjoys telling stories through photos and words.
What makes you happy?
Being on a bike is my true happy place, but I’m also a big fan of hot wings and waffles.
What is your greatest fear?
I don’t find fear productive, but I’m weary of people who are complacent and uninterested in learning.
