Grüss Gott! (a friendly german greeting from Bavaria). My name is Samara and my journey began during my college days while studying abroad in Austria and Germany- that's where I discovered my love for art and photography. For the past 15+ years I've been a photographer that specializes in stylized street photography and conceptual photo-illustrations. I have a passion for creating captivating compositions, illustrations, and designs. Enjoy perusing my portfolio, check out my online store, and if you'd like to collaborate on a project - feel free to drop me a note!
