Hi, I’m Samantha

I’m a London based Portrait, Commercial and Lifestyle Photographer.

I grew up in East London and now live the London suburban life with my husband and two children. After my degree and a long career in Fashion Buying & Merchandising, I decided to do what was truly calling me and become a Professional Photographer. I’ve found soul and meaning in Portrait, Lifestyle and Commercial Photography. Honestly, I’m pretty thankful for that.

People’s journeys, stories of their courage, vulnerability, fear, and love inspire and move me. I’m drawn people who practise kindness, compassion and strength.

As for me, I’d say I’m a realist. I believe in progress through social change. I’m a Plant Mama to many – I stopped counting after 25! My favourite shows are True Detective, GOT, The Wire, Sherlock and Homeland. I love carrot cake and cosy blankets and, in my other life, I’m a professional, free diver (although I don’t dive!).

I love to explore, examine and document emotional connections, so 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, telling stories that help them connect with their tribe, or document a time in their lives.

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

My approach to what I do

I use suppliers that have similar values to me; those whose materials, resources and products are done with sustainability in mind.  I’d like to connect with more companies whose products ‘give work’ to those who live in poverty or have limited 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.
