Sam Hurd

Hours after being offered a job from a NASA contractor, Sam dropped everything to go all in as a political news and celebrity portrait photographer in DC. Sam was inevitably drawn to wedding photography as a space to promote more inventive ideas. His focus is on photographic techniques which, though deceptively simple, have potential to transform difficult or uninspiring shooting environments into one of a kind opportunities for every photo created.
