"In early 2005 I was selected to become the assistant to the legendary Monte Zucker. During the next two years I assisted Monte as he taught 24 masterclasses around the globe, including his favorite class of all-time, his 2006 Masterclass in Italy.  Later in the year I put Monte and Eddie Tapp on a 15-city tour of the U.S.  Little did we know that The Imagination to Reality Tour would be Monte’s final educational endeavor.  During it, the strongest man I’ve ever met was diagnosed with cancer, and a few short months later he passed away.

At the time I became Monte’s assistant, I could never have imagined that I would be left with the solemn responsibility to continue his educational legacy.  This unexpected privilege changed my life forever.  I started Monte Zucker Photographic Education to inspire and teach you the way that Monte inspired and taught me: to become not only a better artist, but to become the best artist you can be." —Jeff Medford, founder and owner of Monte Zucker Photographic Education, which is now MZed.

Since 2007, we have produced 12 multi-national educational tours, 7  International Masterclasses, over 15 different DVD titles, worked with some the best instructors in the industry, and most importantly taught tens of thousands of students worldwide.
