How Zazu Moloi Made an Everlasting Polaroid Photography Brand in 10 Months

Zazu Moloi, 25, African American, was born and raised in Gilbert, Arizona, by two South African immigrant parents. At one time, Zazu was a biomedical engineer before quitting. After serving as a BioMed for one year, he found out that biomedicine was not his thing. He had no motivation to continue striving to excel with something he was not interested in.

That gave him a lot of time to travel the world as he recomposed himself. He had a chance to see diversified trends in the world. He attended fashion shows as he started social media management. In his exploration, Zazu found his new passion – photography. He has been shooting for 10 months now. He is excited about what he is becoming.

Bright Future

In the 10 months of photography, Zazu has climbed to esteemed levels of shooting celebrities like Machine Gun Kelly, Young Thug, Noah Cyrus, Fetty Wap, Future, Saint Jhn, Stormzy, Swae Lee, Yung Blud, to mention a few.

How did Zazu manage to establish a brand in only 10 months of business? Honestly, that shocked me as well. “I made a name for myself in the industry and my city by bringing back the unique feel of polaroid photography,” he says as he continues, “Through this, I have been recognized by celebrities such as MGK and Young Thug, the aforementioned artist had taken me to Dubai and India to get their content.”

Sailing above the Storms

He attests that in all business, regardless of whether they are your passion or not, you ought to encounter challenges and obstacles. “The obstacles I faced in the photography were quite odd,” he opens. He said that he started taking polaroid photos at a party with his friends then he gradually advanced that as a profession. He was taking photos in the clubs. Most clubs were against it.

Additionally, he had no experience in photography. “I didn’t even know what the possibilities or opportunities were accrued in taking photos. All I did was take photos.”

Opportunity Meets Zazu

He continued sneaking cameras into clubs. He had to use his friends to sneak in the equipment for him because they already knew his tricks. All in all, he says that it was fun. His friends that were promoters would book him to be the photographer in their events. They were slowly molding him where he wanted to be in the photography industry. With no time, he was getting prominent clients, and at times, he would get overwhelmed until he had to delegate roles to his team.


Zazu has never copied anyone’s styles and is not about to start. With his creativity, Zazu has become a unique brand that everyone wants to be associated with. The passion in him comes hand in hand with delivering quality and value to his clients.

“I have a unique style of shooting and a unique sense of fashion. This blends with my virtues that I was taught by my parents to make me who I am.” He concludes.
