My name is Sam, I was an actor for 15 years until my passion for photography took over. I have had my headshot taken many, many times; I know what it’s like to want and need that perfect shot and I know how to get it, I love photographing people from all walks of life, I love being able to capture a unique and individual sense of strength and personality. When you shoot with me, I’m there for you, happy and proud to be sharing my skills and guiding you with every click of the shutter. We do this together, we land on those perfect moments, and its fun! I use beautiful clean light, no distractions, we take it easy and hopefully enjoy every minute of our time together.
I have photographed many actors, models and entrepreneurs both in England and Los Angeles over the years, and in September 2020, I graduated from the University of Sussex with a Distinction in my Masters Degree in Photography. I recently participated in a competition with the Headshot Crew run by Peter Hurley, the worlds leading headshot photographer based in New York, and I won 'Headshot Of The Month' with an image of Dr. Alice Brough.
Every human deserves the best image of themselves to put into the world whether it's for business or personal use; we live in a society based on our images and the greatest self promotion is an awesome headshot! Together we can make that happen, check out my testimonials below and come shoot with me.
Simply the best. Her knowledge of lighting and camera angles is enthralling. She also is the most comfortable photographer I have ever worked with. I was already ecstatic before seeing the pictures but the final results left me even more amazed. Will recommend over and over again even more to people who don’t feel so comfortable in front of the camera because she creates an ambience of ease.
Had such a great expression shooting with Sam Davis; she is very friendly, has a great technique for getting the best look out of you and the headshots turned out wonderfully! I definitely recommend her to anyone looking to get professional headshots done
Even though I’ve done a good number of photoshoots by now, I still always go in with nerves, wondering if the people behind the camera will think ‘Who the hell is this guy? He clearly doesn’t know what he’s doing!’ But I can safely say that I’ve never felt more comfortable in front of the camera than I did working with Sammi. She guided me step by step through the shoot with total patience & expertise, and the nerves disappeared in moments. She’s just so enthusiastic, positive and lovely that you can’t help but have a great time! We did the shoot in a brilliant little studio in Brighton (don’t be fooled by the rather unassuming entrance!) which has an impressive lighting setup, changing area and a multitude of backdrop options, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results (and nor could my agent!). Will definitely be using Sammi again for future headshots :)
Sam is a true magician behind the camera and the outcome is just extraordinary.
Getting photographed by Sammi was a pure joy! Rocking up to get your portrait taken can be an intimidating experience yet Sammi made me feel completely at ease. I was amazed with her ability to capture natural, professional photos which showed me for who I am. Not only did I come away with an incredible selection of headshots for all occasions, I also could not stop smiling for the rest of the day after having so much fun. Whether you're looking for headshots for artistic or professional purposes I could not recommend Sammi enough!
Sammi is a talented photographer and a pleasure to work with. I felt very safe in her hands, knowing she understands the industry well from her years of experience, but also she is very kind and friendly. I enjoyed the time we had together and the photos I got felt unique and personal. I'd recommend Sammi to anyone looking for headshots that'll stand out!
