Into The Wild

If one word could sum up Diana Zalucky it is persistence. She never stops short of her goals whether it be going the extra mile for a client or chasing stories to build her portfolio. The latter being the case in her newest series; Alaska’s Sub-Zero Sled Race. She spent 10 days braving the Alaskan cold to show the relationship between one family, their dogs, and the harsh environment they inhabit.  Suzanne Sease of the famed Industry blog, aPhotoEditor, sat down with DZ for an in-depth interview about the struggles of the project, her passions, and her ascension into the advertising world.

Running Down the Mountain

The Nissan Navara (known as the Frontier in the US) is the quintessential outdoor vehicle. Much like any outdoorsmen, it knows no bounds and can take you to the places we dream about. An avid cyclist himself, Steffen Schrågle shot & directed this clip to showcase just how versatile, stylish, and dependable this SUV truly is.
