About Sam as a speaker and judge...
"I met Sam when he came to Connecticut to judge print competition and speak at our state
convention. During competition I was struck by his photographic knowledge and his ability to convey his thoughts in
a clear and productive manner. He was able to critique images with constructive comments indicating a strong understanding
of photography and light.
Later on in the convention, I had the pleasure of attending his seminar. I was
thrilled to finally hear an artist in the field who could also teach. Being a certified teacher, I am constantly frustrated
by the presenters in the industry who talk rather then teach. Not only was Sam’s seminar interesting, it was presented
in a manner that the audience was able to receive and retain the information. He engaged us with activities and questions.
I left with the ability to remember and use the things I learned.
His presentation was organized and well balanced.
Sam inspired us with knowledge of how to create beautiful images. He then complimented the photographic with the business
side of photography.
I would highly recommend Sam to any association or group looking for a speaker.
His knowledge coupled with the ability to teach is a rare combination. I have no doubt that he will inspire and educate.
Whether it is for a day or a week, Sam has the skills necessary to truly help photographers grow in their profession."
