Project Trinity : Photographer #3

For the 3rd photographer I was set on finding a female photographer that could balance the power of photographers. 

In the process Jerome and I both agreed that we had found this in Samantha. She stood out from the rest. 
What finalized this was me meeting Sam in person. Her passion for what she does and her desire to grow made this decision a lot easier. 

So here we have it: In Samantha's words: 

"As a child I was always creating: painting, drawing, cutting, sticking, making something. 
Creativity has always been a part of my personality. 

My journey to photography has been a long and passionate one. 
It didn't begin when I held a Nikon for the first time, it began when I started creating. 
Photography was a natural progression in my creative journey. 
I treat my photographs and approach them as art. 
My camera, the subject, the place and the moment in time are all sacred- they are respected. 

I believe in human kind. I believe in the goodness within others. 
In my photographs I aim to find that goodness- the most beautiful part of any person. 
It is that goodness and being able to find it and capture it, that makes an image more than just an image. 
It becomes a message, a story, a memory. 

Age and gender mean nothing when you have passion. 
When you open your mind and put your heart into something- limitations seem to not exist. 
Now that you know a bit about me and my work, I would like to introduce myself.
