About Me

My name is Samara Morris and I’m a photographer specialising in shooting women. I was born in Cornwall but moved to London when I was very young and have always had East London as a base. I travel a lot for work and live a pretty nomadic lifestyle but when I am back in the UK I work out of a quirky studio in Islington.

I was always inspired by the 80-90’s supermodel era, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen etc. My passion is photography and being able to express yourself through the medium of art. A lot of my early work had a strong narrative and I always loved shooting women. My inspirations were quite diverse, from the power women of Helmut Newton, to Corinne Day’s intimate shots of Kate Moss, the fantastical world of David Lachapelle to the realness of David Bailey’s portraits.

My story so far

I always had a passion for art and I got accepted into The London College of Fashion 15 years ago doing a BA in Fashion Photography. During my graduation there I was selected to shoot Erdem’s first collection.

I have shot for a range of brands including commercial clients such as Ted Baker, Nigel Hall, Sony, Universal, Lee Cooper, Wrangler etc.

My past experience as Head of Photography for a big Advertising agency gave me the perfect platform to understand what a client is looking for, run a shoot smoothly and produce perfectly framed, eye-catching images.

Due to my love of the sunshine and travel, I tend to shoot a lot of swimwear 🙂

As any artist will say “creating art is a meditative form in itself” my photography is my art. I am very grateful and passionate about what I do.

What they say
  • Shooting with Samara is one of the best experiences in front of a camera. She is not only friendly, funny and totally makes you feel relaxed from the moment you walk in but she also is so professional and clearly so very talented that you immediately know you are in amazing hands. Being a woman it is so incredible to have a female photographer who makes you feel so comfortable and knows how to get the best from her models. She always pushes me to my maximum and the photographs speak for themselves. Her direction is perfect and she knows exactly what makes a great shot and how to get it. It’s always fun, creative and exciting and she is an extremely skilled photographer who takes stunning pictures.

  • Samara is a dream to work with. She is an excellent photographer. Her ability to capture a perfect moment is incredible, her photo is on my book cover. It was on the mock-up and it got such great response from the book sellers, we kept it as the final cover. Her intuitive way of working allows her to get the best out of you without the hard work. Working with Samara is effortless and leaves you feeling so full of energy and positivity. Her phone is ringing off the hook, she’s hot property!
