About Sam

Hi! I’m Sam. And my favourite things to do are creating, building (so many things), meeting new people and being in nature!

As a photographer, I worked on over 700 projects all around the world, including million-dollar events. I love helping people and businesses develop new ideas that help them grow to their full potential. 

My photography style is highly detailed with a high-end yet natural look and feel. 

Besides photography, I’m passionate about human psychology and understanding why we make decisions. It’s one of the reasons why I travel: to create connections with whomever I meet, whatever their walk of life. To do so, I’m fluent in Dutch, English and French.

Sam's Story

As an 18-year-old, I moved from a forgotten town in the desert to The Netherlands, my place of birth, all on my own. I grew up in nature, in a rural village with 16 families – all artists. But as I was dreaming of being a famous musician, I got fascinated by the city of Amsterdam. Most of my youth was dedicated to music. I was planning my career during class and often skipped opportunities to hang out with friends to work on my music. 

Less than a month after finishing school, I packed my stuff and moved to Amsterdam on a mission to enter the music scene. I had forgotten every word of Dutch that I spoke when I left to the desert ten years ago. And I quickly learned that competition was fierce. Everyone in Amsterdam seemed to be in music. 

While almost running out of money, I came to the conclusion that I had nothing unique to offer as a musician in Amsterdam. I had to create a brand. I needed good photos of myself.  So, I bought my very first camera and started shooting. 

But by creating my personal brand, I realised I was not the only one in the industry who could benefit from eye-catching images for branding. The scene had so much more need for good photos than for more musicians. After six months of spending every free minute I had on photography, I fell in love with the craft. I managed to quit my job and became a full-time music photographer! 

Now, I help others share their talent, stories, and ideas with the world, all through the lens of my camera.
