Sam reed Photography

I take pictures that capture stories and showcase products. My work balances a documentary feel with carefully considered product placement to create the sports and outdoor lifestyle images my clients need. Mountain biking, climbing, running and journeys into the hills feature most frequently in my work.

Wirksworth, Derbyshire, UK - on the corner of the Peak District National Park.


I am experienced at putting together photo-shoots from concept to completion. Products, athletes and landscapes (or a combination of all three) are my usual subjects. I can be found working in studio conditons or battling wild weather in the wilderness.

I've been fortunate enough to work with some great brands and see my images printed in major outdoor magazines.

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

Clients include:

Lowe Alpine / Berghaus / Hedkayse / Rab / Henmores / Podsacs / Goalfix / The American Mountain Co / Schades / Outdoor Designs / Focx / Sue Carson Saddles

+ I am also proud to work with a range of creative agencies.


Photographer & creative. Mountain biker & outdoor adventurer. Commonly found looking a bit muddy.

Building dens, playing in fields and exploring on my bike (a Raleigh Burner with yellow Skyway mag wheels, in case you're interested) 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.

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

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