PHOTOGRAPHER

BORN in the CATSKILLS.

He is pictured here with his partner in crime ERIC getting dressed in a leprechaun outfit HE MADE for a CHERYL (http://cherywillruinyourlife.info) an art collective based in BROOKLYN who make videos, do performance art, and throw a long-running series of costumed theme-parties.

He has a BFA in PHOTOGRAPHY from the School of Art+Design at Purchase College, SUNY and recently earned a certificate in PATTERNMAKING from the FASHION INSTITUTE of TECHNOLOGY.

He started out as a PHOTOGRAPHER, shooting the things he loved. His primary subjects are his friends and hobbies, shooting some of the same people for ten years. He began shooting COSPLAYERS shortly after he began COSPLAYING himself at anime conventions in Baltimore, Dallas, and New Jersey. During and after college Sam performed with THE TERROR PIGEON DANCE REVOLT!(http://theterrorpigeondancerevolt.com/), making costumes, taking photos during every show from the middle of the crowd, and shooting the cover and other exterior art for the debut album, as well as recording some back-up vocals. In the past few years, he has appeared in videos and performed with CHERYL.

Originally starting out as half a JOKE, creating and interpreting costumes and day-to-day outfits became his primary means of expression. Sam MAKES clothes that are as much about people as his photography is. Custom pieces, spandex, comfortable knits, and borderline-insane prints all feature heavily in his design aesthetic. Body-baring, occasionally confrontational, and blending MASCULINE and FEMININE style, his work is always focused on FUN.
