The Photographer

Hi, my name is Sam and “No” I don’t eat green eggs and Ham (you’d be surprised how often I’m asked that question). I am an Environmental Documentarian based out of Chicago, Illinois (that’s a “fancy smancy” way of saying wedding and fashion photographer from the Windy City).

Instead of giving you the traditional resume answer to the proverbial “So, tell us about yourself” question, here’s a few fun facts about who I am and what makes “SamTheMan” tick. Fasten your seatbelts as some of the information below may surprise you. Ready? Here we go,
