A Little About Me. #bio #nerd #aspiration.

My name is Eli Samuel and I have been a photographer for over 10 years. I think I may have come out of the womb holding a camera! Lol, I have shot most kinds of photography including pictures of family, strangers, events, street life, weddings, studio portraits, concert images, and friends, though I prefer to shoot fashion so I founded SAMUEL VISION to service fashion/editorial and corporate advertising.

In my heart and if you know me, I am a little nerdy. I am a “photo enthusiast” as well as a passionate photographer. Blogging is my way of giving back. I read all the posts published by our heroes in our industry every day like Steve Huff, Ken Rockwell etc.  So I thought to myself, stop being selfish!

My dream is to grace the cover of Vogue Italia. I am coming for you Vogue! Help me get there.

Hotel Editorial - Insights from Fashion Photographer, Eli Samuel of Samuel Vision.

Hey everyone,

Quick update, big weekend for us. Shot a lookbook on the Friday the 27th of October and this on this Saturday. This was my first shoot with the wonderful Bianca Russo from Tamblyn Models, she did great. Check her port at the link below.

Bianca Russo - http://tamblynmodelling.com.au/models-w/biancarusso.html

Bianca Russo - http://tamblynmodelling.com.au/models-w/biancarusso.html

The reason why I wanted to share about this shoot was that it is the first test that I have put my own money into, to pay for the location.

The first test I have put my own money into, to pay for the location.

This was a big step for me! I have had rooms comped before because most of what I shoot gets published. I submitted a mood board to a heap of the hotels in Brisbane and I was honest about the content we intended to shoot. There was a small portion of partial nudity that was going to be shot in the room. Long story short, I invested and paid to shoot in the hotel I wanted. I could have been dishonest about the content but I chose to be transparent. 

Can not wait to show you guys the images! It was amazing!  

 

 

 

Keep Shooting!

Much love,
