"I recently shot some headshots with Sam and the shoot went fantastic! He gave me everything I could have asked for from a photographer. He has a great eye for capturing "your" look and getting that natural shot. The entire time I felt completely comfortable, relaxed, and confident that the shots would turn out well.
I've already gotten work from these shots and love having them as part of my portfolio. Sam's a great photographer and I definitely recommend him. Whether headshots or any other type of photography, you'll come away with a great experience and some great shots."

"Sam is hands down the best photographer I know in LA, which says a lot because I feel like there are 13 photographers for every 10 people in LA. I use "best" due to the range he has. Most people specialize in 1-2 types of photography, but Sam shoots everything and takes a lot of creative risks that always pay off successfully such as his "painting with light" series, one of which I am proud to own and it's the crowning piece of decoration in my home. I would recommend him for any photography work no matter how big or small the project."
"I have produced over 300 projects in my life and I can honestly say the best times have been when Sam's there taking pictures. He's not only an amazing photographer, but he's also a pleasure to work with and super professional. He gets the work done, doesn't need me to hand hold him, he takes the lead on shoots and knows what looks good. He doesn't need direction, but if you give him some he will go above and beyond what's expected. He has an amazing eye and I've never seen the man take a bad picture. I'd recommend him to everyone! :) Keep up the amazing work Sam! Can't wait to work with you again."
"I cannot express how much I recommend Sam as a photographer. I've had to opportunity to be his subject, and to refer him to my family members.
"Sam is a truly gifted young photographer. On our wedding day he was there before everyone else and had a beaming smile on his face. He exuded an energy that just put me at ease. I knew me and my future wife were in good hand and that the photos he would deliver us would exceed expectations...and he did!!! Also, for such a big guy he is remarkably stealthy and attained some of the most amazing candid photos I have ever seen. Sam has become our go-to photographer for anything we need, whether it's for our business, parties, or fine art; his versatility as an artist is boundless. We love what you do, Sam! Thank you for everything!"
"Sam is someone who makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera- which is especially good if you're new to the modeling/acting industry. He's very genuine and loves photography and it comes across in his sessions. I had a great time!"
- Valerie Sasso - Actor
"I had the distinct pleasure of working with Sam in my capacity as his photography/photojournalism professor. He is definitely one of the most creative, intuitive and talented photographers that have come through our program. Attention to detail, and a great eye, you can't go wrong with Sam!"
-David Blumenkrantz - Professor of Photojournalism
"Shooting Sam's "Sit-n-Sip" project with him was fun. Not only is he amazing with the camera, but it was great getting together and catching up with my old buddy from college. He's a great guy and a great photographer. I would definitely recommend shooting with this fun and young photographer!"- Belina Maoli-Larsen - Professional Dancer
