Hello, my name is Sam,
I'm 26 years old, and a photographer from the good ol mitten state. A small town called Whitehall on Michigan's west side near the great lakes shore line. It's a beautiful place to live and visit, from the dunes to the amazing national forest's Michigan is an outdoor recreation paradise.

I always try to seek out creative shots that most people just walk by and shrug off. To me the chase of trying to find those perfect type of shots has been the center point of inspiration in my photography. To be at the right place at the right time is always a challenge it can be enduring and truly a fantastic adventure. For me photography is much more then just a hobby it's a part of everyday life, not only to capture and save the memories we create everyday but also to express my own sense of artwork and to portray the beauty that is all around us that most people seem to take for granted.

The simple things we miss everyday like a sunset or a sunrise or the way the traffic lights reflect off the road after a good hard rain. These things are so small so minutely hidden within all the drama of the day that they just disappeared. But these are the things that make life so unique and amazing. I always think of this quote...
"To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

— Elliott Erwitt
That to me is what photography is all about, capturing moments that are otherwise hidden from your view on a normal basis.
