Hi, I'm Sam

I create atmospheric lighting to photograph finely engineered products for the cycling industry and other commercial clients.

Studio/ Office: The Maltings, St Mary's Gate, Wirksworth, Derbyshire. DE4 4DQ. UK

I'm based in the UK on the corner of the Peak District National Park with great access to major road networks.

I also work in London, Sheffield and on location.


I have many years of experience, training and know-how and am skilled at running photo-shoots from concept to completion. From humble beginnings, I now shoot with industry-leading equipment and have the pleasure of shooting for some well-known brands.

I love beautifully crafted lighting and industrial-chic style. I can get obsessed with the subtleties of texture in an image and greatly appreciate good design and engineering. I happily work on projects of all sizes.

I always aim to understand a brand's vision and bring it to life in the best possible way. I also work closely with a range of talented individuals (e.g., stylists, videographers, and CGI artists) so I can help form the right team for each project.

If you've got a project you wish to discuss, that's great. Just get in touch; I'd love to hear from you.

Clients include:

Lowe Alpine / Berghaus / Hedkayse / Rab / Henmores / Podsacs / Leedum / Singletrack World / Goalfix / The American Mountain Co / Schades / Outdoor Designs / Shovai / Images Costumes / Focx / Sue Carson Saddles

+ I am also proud to have worked for a range of creative agencies and magazines.


Photographer & creative. Mountain biker & outdoor adventurer.

Building dens, playing in fields and exploring on my bike (a Raleigh Burner with yellow Skyway mag wheels) were the activities I loved most as a kid. Since then my adventures have got bigger and the bike is much more capable, but my spirit to have fun and explore remains the same.

My first foray with photography was as a teenager but I've been a creative all my life.

I’m inspired by the natural world/ dramatic landscapes and great human endeavours. I love my family & friends, mountain biking, climbing, adventure, exploration, Jaffa Cakes, drinking tea (mainly Yorkshire), helping people, and taking pictures.

It is my goal to be creative with whatever I do, and help others reach their full potential along the way.

Thanks to Steve Gregory for my mugshot - Castleton, Cave Dale loop.
