Video and Photography Director
Sam has always had a keen interest in storytelling… specifically telling stories with images. In fact, as a child, he often “borrowed” the family camcorder to film movies with his friends in the backyard. After a certain episode involving taping over footage of his sister’s birthday party, his grandfather gave him an old 35mm camera, and he was instantly hooked.
In 2016, he started his own company focusing on wedding photography. Having people invite him into their lives on one of their most important days (and treating every wedding like its own story) was a great experience. But two years later, Sam knew it was time to move on, and he sold the company to pursue a new direction, joining the team at DRM as Video and Photography Director.
Having been a small business owner, Sam understands the unique challenges that arise on a day to day basis. Today, video and photography are essential to how clients perceive the product or service… and by extension yourself. If a still or moving picture can tell a story, then it can be relatable. It can make you feel nostalgia. But more importantly, it can create a connection. And that’s the most important tool in marketing.
When he’s not working, Sam frequents concerts and film festivals and works on his own personal photography projects.
