Hi, I'm Sam.
I am a freelance photographer based in the South Bucks / East Berks area, with many years of experience and a city & guilds award. I specialise in pet and event photography, whether that be weddings, parties, christenings or corporate events. My photography style would be classed as a journalistic, I follow the guests throughout the event, capturing candid shots to tell a story. I mostly like to take my photos in an unobtrusive manner so that the photographs feel natural and honest. Please look at my Portfolios and get in contact if you would like a quote.
“Thank you Sam for being so incredibly patient with them and for having the creativity to get some lovely shots of our fur babies. Sam really is the epiphany of professionalism and I would have no qualms about recommending him to family and friends. Top guy!!”
who takes my photos?
I am a solo photographer, so all sessions are covered by myself. Sometimes, clients may request to have a second photographer at their wedding, this is something that I can I provide depending on my second photographer's availability.
WHere are you based?
I'm based in Basingstoke, Hampshire and I cover jobs within a 15 mile radius at no extra cost to travel, see map below. For jobs that require me to travel further, I charge £0.50 per extra mile outside of the 15 mile radius.
HOW WILL MY PHOTOS BE DELIVERED?
All of my photos, regardless of the type of service, will be uploaded to an online gallery. The gallery will be shared with you via a website link and a link to a personalised gallery app that you can download to your phone (iOS/Android). The online gallery will be accessible by a PIN number that I will provide to you, this can also be shared with friends and family if you wish. From the gallery, you will be able to download photos, upload them directly to social media and purchase from a whole range of printing options. At an extra cost, I can provide photographs on a USB drive or CD if required, please enquire when I provide your quote.
WHAT FORMAT ARE MY PHOTOS PROVIDED IN?
All of my photos are provided in JPEG format, this is the industry standard. I'm afraid I do not supply the RAW image files that I capture as these are the basis of my work and I will only provide images that I have processed with my unique style of editing.
The copyright to my commissioned photos are shared with myself and the client, this allows you to make unlimited prints and copies of your photographs for your family and friends, for no profitable gain. I respect the privacy of your event and guests, so I will always ask for your permission for the right to use a small number of your photographs for marketing purposes at my discretion.
If you have any further questions please feel free to message me.
