About Sam Hurd

Hello! I'm Sam. Welcome to my experimental lab.

Here’s a quick overview of the types of content you’ll gain access to once you become a Patron supporter (for a more robust idea, check out my Table of Contents here)

  • Photo deconstructions
  • Experimental photography techniques
  • Photo-making and editing tutorials
  • Real world and honest gear and software reviews
  • Business, productivity and workflow tips
  • Photography challenges (like my 3-step click challenge)
  • Lead referrals (limited tier)
  • The Epic Podcast
  • Access to the Patron-Only Forum

I've been fascinated with the magic of photography for as long as I can remember, and have been photographing weddings, couples and portraits for 9 years. I've developed a distinct style over time, thanks to a commitment to my craft and the trust of those I work with.

My hope is that you're able to learn new skills, valuable information, connect with like-minded creatives, and get inspired. I love interacting with my Patrons so please feel free to ask questions and start discussions!



The best thing about this platform is that when you join a tier you get instant access to everything ever posted in that tier — and everything new for as long as you're an active supporter!

1) Epic Patron Tier

Ethics Statement

I am not hired, (or feel in any way compelled) to mention any of the company's products that are found throughout my Patreon feed. I am very proud to present my opinions from a totally independent perspective, and sharing information through my personal experience is the priority here.

A few kind words from my Patrons (see even more)
Sam's Patreon has single handedly been the best investment in my career.
  • Steven Neaves

I just finished binge reading/watching your entire Patreon library. To say I'm extremely inspired would be a gross understatement. I'm absolutely pumped for this upcoming wedding season.
  • Nikola Janev

What Sam is sharing is worth way more than what he charges. In fact, it's priceless. I've learned so much, explored my own creativity, and also laughed a lot.

I'll share a detailed review and recommendation for the company I outsourced my SEO optimization to! I experienced nearly immediate results and they audited my site many levels deeper than I ever knew even mattered.
