About - Commercial Photographer London

Hi, I’m Samantha

I’m a Portrait and Commercial Photographer based in London.

I grew up in East London and now live the London suburban life with my husband and two children. I left a career in Fashion when Photography found me, and, I’ve since found soul and meaning in Portrait, Lifestyle and Commercial Photography. I’m pretty thankful for that.

I’m inspired by people’s journeys, stories of their courage, vulnerability, fear and love. I’m drawn to people who practise kindness, compassion and strength, quietly inspirational people and those who live and love with a whole heart.

People come with so many dimensions. I explore, examine and document emotional connections where I can both in my project work and in paid commissions too. I’m most at home when I can create honest stories and intense emotive portraits. I find a way with every brand, individual or family, to tell stories that help them connect with their tribe, or to document a time in their lives.

If this resonates with you, or your brand, then please head over to my contact page or email me directly and tell me how I can help you.

My approach to what I do is done with purpose and responsibility.

I therefore choose to use suppliers that have similar values to me. Suppliers whose materials, resources and products are done with sustainability in mind.  I’m currently hoping to connect with companies whose products ‘give work’ to those who live in poverty or have little access to education, thus empowering communities with opportunities to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. If you have any contacts or suggestions around this, please share them with me, I’d love to know.
