Sam Self portrait-6484.jpg

I am a Sydney based photographer capturing portraits, places, food and events - for small and large businesses - for print and web. I love natural light, finding perfect locations and creating imagery that tells the story of who you are, whatever you do. My photography has been commissioned for both private & corporate jobs across Australia & has been published in several award winning books (including the award winning Flour & Stone Baked for Happiness and Things I Love by Megan Morton).

When not behind the camera, I make handmade artist books and journals and run workshops teaching people to make their own. My books are always understated in style and colour - I want the books to feel beautiful to use but simply be a vehicle for your work - art or writing. I always use premium quality papers that are archival and carbon neutral wherever possible. The fear of the blank page is always present but these books are built to be used and built to last. Find information about upcoming events on workshop page.

Recently I have been combining photography and book binding techniques to create abstracted landscapes. My works have been selected for The Little Things Art Prize, The North Sydney Art Prize and have been exhibited in group shows at Eramboo, The Corner Store Gallery Orange and Contact Sheet Gallery.
