Hey. I’m Sam. You’ve probably already guessed by now that I’m a photographer. I’ve been one for a while – ever since high school. There are few things in my life that I’m consistent with but photography has always been the one thing to stick with me. Clicking the shutter, developing the film, and printing the pictures have always had a way of clinging to my soul.
When I started this business back in 2013, I labeled myself as a wedding photographer. After a few years, I realized it’s not about what I capture but who. I’m passionate about working alongside genuine and heartfelt individuals. No matter what I’m photographing my goal is to make you feel something. To draw out the story with what I photograph. I strive to evoke emotions with my work – to create art. I like to photograph a lot of movement and detail, to set the scene and bring an image to life.
I shoot primarily with medium format film. I started my photographic journey with film back in high school. I spent most of my high school days with a Minolta X-370 loaded with ilford hp5 in my hand. It was then that I was taught how to develop, scan, and print my own work. I’ll never forget how proud photography made me feel. It was mine and there was no turning back from it. Because of that there has always been something about film that resonates with me and I hope it does with you as well.
Thanks for checking out my work. If you want to collaborate and create some art, hit me up. If you want to chat or grab a coffee, I’m up for that too.
Despite the fact that my camera is attached to my hand 90% of the time, I do dabble in other things as well…
