“Having known Sam for just shy of a decade, I am able to honestly say that his attention to detail in himself and day to day life is right up there, and his photography is no exception.

In 2014 my husband Tim and I spent hours, evening after evening, trawling through the endless list of photographers and their work, in search of that one person who could capture those special moments that our guests and I were to experience on our upcoming wedding day.

Our main criteria was for that one photographer to have the ability to be adventurous, to have a keen eye for detail, and who was able to capture photographs with a variety of different concepts, and to make our photographs pop with colour and to create something so special that we could treasure forever – Sam was a guest at our wedding along with his wife, and we invited Sam to bring his kit with him – having seen the photographs that Sam produced for us, I can hand on heart say that he was able to produce photographs that encompassed everything that we had wanted and more.

Sam’s photographs are not only of a very high standard, but he also has the incredible ability to give you that sense of emotion and feeling that surrounds them. His professionalism, dedication and his keen eye for detail is very apparent in all the areas of his work.

Finally, I would like to thank you Sam for the photographs that you produced, something that I shall treasure forever and something you should be very proud of.

We wish you all the very best for all of your future endeavours.”

“Sam! Thanks again for the amazing shots you took on Saturday. Launching a business is tough enough without the added pressure of not being 100% happy with how product is being conveyed. You helped us change that and we couldn’t be loving your work more!”

“Thank you Sam, for your brilliant photos of my dad’s surprise party and your lovely words about the event! It was great to have you there so we didn’t have to worry about capturing moments and could just enjoy them instead!”

“Could not have asked for a better photographer than Sam for our wedding day. He was punctual, professional and knew exactly what kind of photographs we wanted (and I was quite fussy with what I wanted!). The pictures really are beautiful and we will cherish them forever. We are so grateful for all of Sam’s hard work on the day (and after!) Sam worked so hard to make sure that our pictures were ready and waiting for us when we returned from honeymoon and it really gave us a boost to have them to look at after our post wedding/honeymoon blues! We would recommend Sam to everyone and anyone who wants creative, emotive and beautiful photographs to capture any special occasion. We can’t say thank you enough Sam  x”

“I know I speak for myself and everyone who helped organise our Macmillan coffee mornings for the past two years, that we absolutely loved both sets of photos that STR photography did for us! They were absolutely stunning! They beautifully showcased these wonderful charity events and how everybody came together to raise money for a wonderful cause! The prizes for the raffle were also gratefully received! We can’t thank you enough Sam! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you x”

  1. I was lucky enough to win an online competition that Sam ran and my prize was one of his prints.
    I’d never been to Lumsdale waterfall in Matlock but fell in love with the image Sam had taken. It led to my teenage son and I taking a road trip there to try and recreate the shot as part of my son trying out his own camera. So not only have I got a beautiful print showing Sams brilliant eye for capturing a serene moment; I’ve also got a lovely reminder of fond family times I’ve had as a result of winning the print.
    A fantastically skilled photographer who reminds you how important it is to play at being a tourist on your own doorstep as there’s always something new to see. Inspiring!
