Hi! It’s me, Sammy.
Photographer, Content Creator, Educator
I’ve been told I have a gift for making people look really cool when they’re in front of my camera, but what I love most is when they tell me how it makes them feel. I lead every shoot with good energy, positive vibes and a whole lot of “yass” when I see my clients through the lens. Photography is so much more to me than just pictures or even out of the box ideas. Sure – getting people covered in glitter, surrounded by disco balls or turned into an alien for a day is fun – but really, it’s about the energy exchange between me and the person I’m shooting. I’m not just going to take your picture – I’m going to be your hype-woman, your pose guide and your peaceful guru all in one. I’m going to get your best angles, listen when you tell me what side you like more, and edit the photos how I would want myself to be edited – subtly and beautifully.
Working with me, you get over 12 years of experience in photography, styling, storytelling, modeling, theater and acting – all ingredients that make your vision a colorful and engaging final product. My background is in print journalism, so on top of photos you’re also getting the gal who knows how to work quickly, efficiently and can make a deadline. My blend of moxie-driven professionalism and distinctly unique visuals means you’ll receive not just a photoshoot, but a photoshoot experience – with zero worries, a lot of fun and all the good vibes.
If you want to learn how to shoot, how to run your business as an artist, learn about selling your own prints, or anything photo related, I’m available for consulting! I am also an adjunct professor at Nossi College of Art where I teach Social Media, Location Lighting, and Success Strategies. I love to help others figure out their shooting style, or just get a leg up on how to set your rates. Reach out to ask about consulting if you need someone to teach you the ropes!
