Ashley Zachary A2theZshow

Hi! I’m Ashley Zachary, a Content Creator based out of Long Beach, California. I’m a multifaceted artist who’s an actor, content creator, and founder of a non-profit that promotes other underrepresented artists. That’s why I call my company A2theZshow.

In a perfect world, I would focus solely on my acting. But to earn a living, I’ve created a business around other skill sets that I love: photography and filmmaking. I’ve always been drawn to cameras, whether I was in front of them or behind the scenes. I photograph clients and/or create videos for them, while supporting their brand evolution and brand strategy.

Over the last five years, I’ve grown in my abilities to choose the right camera, light my subjects beautifully, and be intentional with every shot I take. I also stay abreast of the rapidly evolving social media landscape, keeping a presence on such platforms as Pinterest, Tik Tok, and YouTube shorts. Sometimes I create short films with myself as the actress, which brings together all my talents.

My path has not been easy. As a girl growing up in Detroit, I battled dyslexia. Though I wanted to be an actress, I struggled to memorize lines. I dealt with toxicity and misogyny, which made me doubt myself as a queer woman. But that motivated me to create safe spaces for myself and for others.

That’s why I launched Up and Coming Actors (UCA), a non-profit that supports other aspiring artists in theater, film and content creation. I help members gain the confidence and exposure they need to succeed. If I were to receive an artist grant, I would invest in new equipment, expand my marketing, and explore more creatively.

As an evolving artist living in Long Beach, I like to spark conversation within my community and leave my audiences inspired.

I formed my company A2 the Z Show as an opportunity too capture your reality through my lens. Our focus is on covering your photographic marketing needs. We provide a fun, energetic atmosphere resulting in a boost of confidence and lively captures ready for posting. Our well-experienced and skilled artists create customer content calendars that coincide with your company’s sales goals. From brand consultation sessions to social media management & commercials , A to Z covers what you need.

Same Love Soul Love (2024)
Ashley’s project, “Same Love Soul Love,” is a community-informed film about love and loss during the #COVID19 pandemic lockdown. Her narrative explores the shifting emotions and trials of soulmates caught in life’s dramatic whirlwind during a time of mass grief and isolation. At the heart of the story lies a woman’s poignant struggle with miscarriage, a battle that tests the fibers of her marriage. As the story twists and turns, it becomes a testament to love and resilience.
