Here, we catch up with Sam and get more detail about his passion for photography.

How long have you been a photographer?

I’ve been a photographer for six years now and I still love it as much as I did when I first started!

How would you describe the style of your photography?

My photographic style varies hugely. From black and white studio portraits to outdoor extreme sports. My real passion is being outdoors, capturing beautiful landscapes and spotting rare wildlife when there is no one else around. At the same time, I love interacting with people and learning about their ideas and projects and transforming these into a finished piece using visual storytelling.

What is the inspiration behind three of your pieces?

The Lonely Tree Night” captures the stillness of the countryside and isolation at night.

“Our Winter Castle” was inspired by my wife and I’s first trip to Wales. We decided we would have a Summer castle and a winter castle. This is our winter castle.

“Llandwyn island lighthouse” shows that you don’t have to go to Barbados to get a bit of island paradise!

Tell us a bit about you…

I grew up in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park near Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Surrounded by natural outdoor beauty I have always been a person that thrives on being outdoors. I love travelling and seeing different landscapes and cultures around the world. While most of my career has been purely scientific, I use photography as a creative outlet.

After university in Leeds, I embarked on a round-the-world trip which included South-East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada. Since then I have had a long stint in Bath, UK, followed by another trip with my wife around South-East Asia and settling in New Zealand for nearly three years. We now live in Four Crosses, Powys, near the border with Shropshire.
