    Referees

    "I've worked with Sam on a number of occasions, and find him a gifted cinematographer. Easy to work with, he makes a pleasant addition on set. I trust him implicitly to add value to my work and what I am attempting to do. He cares about projects and takes pride in his work and yours, he has a keen eye and a good sense of artistic creative judgement and the technical knowledge to back it up and get results. He's enhanced every project I've worked with him on as well as being great fun to work alongside, and he'd be my first cinematographer of choice to work with in future."

    Leilani Holmes, Director

    Short films 'Butterflies, By the steps of St Pauls'

    "Sam is everything you could ask for in a DOP, courteous, hard working and with a great eye for light and composition. He was recommended to us to shoot some essential last minute GV's for our feature film, "Common People". He understood the concept immediately, communicated his own ideas clearly, worked quickly on the ground, yet had the patience to frame and offer up the best possible shot in every instance."

    Stewart Alexander, Director

    Feature 'Common People'

    "Sam is knowledgable, quick and works within your budget. Most importantly, his work always looks STUNNING. I would recommending him on any shoot be it a documentary, a promo or a short film and guarantee the images to look better than anything expected."

    Ramon Ricard, Producer (Kream London)

    Commercial 'Fairtrade', Promo 'Virgin Active'

    "Sam is one of those characters in which his dedication to achieve the highest quality for his work is second to none. He has a high level of integrity. Extremely patient. Hard working. Creative. Adaptive. And able to comprise to an extent that finds a solution to any DOP problem, issue or demand. I highly recommend Sam."

    Joaquim Baretto, Director (Bear and Wolf Films)

    Commercial 'Infusion'

    "Samuel is talented and hardworking. He is always prepared to go the extra mile to achieve the best results, and has strong technical knowledge of a range of formats and styles. He's good fun to work with too."

    David Abramsky, Director (MoJo Pictures)
