"I've shot with Sam a couple times now on creative projects and I have always been so impressed with his professionalism in all aspects of the shoot. From pre-shoot communication to quick delivery of high quality images, Sam is a dream to work with - a true creative at heart who is happy to direct with small tweaks to ensure that each shot is perfect."

Jennifer Bailey

"Sam is one of the most knowledgable and professional Photographer sI've ever worked with! You can tell his passion is his craft, just by the way he walks you through the shoot. As only modelling a couple of times myself, Sam made me feel so confident and helped me so much to achieve a great shoot. Highly recommend him to anyone on any modelling level!"

"Had an amazing location shoot with Sam yesterday! he was very prompt at setting up and getting started as it was quite cold outside. He was professional but I also had a great laugh with him and enjoyed shooting with him. I would 100% recommend sam to any type of model, even if locations shoots aren't your strongest point (like me) he will make you feel like a natural!"

"His Portrait Photography is outstanding. He works professionally, efficiently with our shoot only being forty minutes and recieving images the same day. He has such a creative eye which is fun to watch and be a part of. His shoots are easily recognisable and appreciated by others so I highly recommend working with Sam."

Jodie May

"Sam is an extreamley talented Photographer with huge creativity and attention to detail. I have always felt totally comfortable with working with him and discussing ideas. It is an absolute pleasure to work with him and we always have plenty of fun. He is aware and considerate of the model's wellbeing when shooting and adapt where necessary. The images he creates are beautiful and high quality - he has a wonderful sense of style. I could not recommend him and his work highly enough."

Elizebeth Harriet

"Sam was recommended to me as I was looking for a portrait photographer to photograph me and my family. I was after Bluebell shots in particular and Sam took us to the best place for the shoot. Sam was so accommodating and great with my 13 year old son and 10 year old daughter, he made the shoot loads of fun for them both. Not only did we get some beautiful photos to keep but we also had a really memorable day. I would recommend SamEastFilm to anyone looking for a professional photographer."

Emily Culver

"Sam is a great guy to work with , really creative and worked hard to deliver a great debut Video for The Filthy Casuals and we cant wait to work with him again on our next track"

David Harris (Band Manager)

"Sam always makes me feel at ease in-front of the camera  and as someone who has experience with a few difference Photographers; I have to say the quality of his photography cannot be matched. Furthermore, the way he shows his own personal flare and style within each shoot is like no other Photographer I've experienced. One of the best parts or working with Sam is his personality as he's such a genuinely nice person to work with, it would make anyone feel comfortable and happy which radiates through the camera. I can't recommend him enough!"

Ana Hosty

"I really like working with Sam in general. He is very good at giving directions and receiving ideas. He does have a unique way of editing but is also flexible in terms of what specific types of shoot needs. He's pleasant to work with on set with lots of smiles and jokes! I would highly recommend Sam for any type of shoot you are interested in and he can easily translate your idea into reality!"

Rysia Rhys

Beky Humphreys

"I had an incredible shoot with Sam yesterday. The location he picked was incredible. He was so friendly, chatty and made me comfortable throughout. His eye for creativity was amazing and there is not one edit I received that I do not love!

I would highly recommend Sam and can't wait to shoot with him again!"
