"Film with Sam was one of the best workshops I have ever attended. I am still on a high! I've worked with digital for the past 6 years and I have never been proud of my work. My clients seem to be happy with what I give them but I am always embarrassed giving them the final results because I know I can do better. Film has opened up a whole new world for me and I am finally producing pictures that I am proud of. I don't think any of us at the workshop believed our shots were going to turn out like Sam said they would. But then we we got our film back and ohhhh my goodness. I think we all freaked at how right Sam was. Film is a lot easier and forgiving then digital and the results make me want to throw away my digital camera. If you have had any thoughts about getting into film, TAKE THIS WORKSHOP. Sam explains it so well. It was awesome spending the day around her and feeding off her creativity.
Do it. Sign up for this workshop. Right now. Go"

"When I signed up for Film with Sam I knew it would be amazing, but it exceeded my expectations. It was such an emotional experience, I felt like I learned technical stuff but I also learned how to capture people's lives more authentically. Not only did she have an awesome book for us to take home with all the information, but she answered a million questions and took the time to help people one on one while we were practicing.
I left feeling confident in my ability to move forward shooting film not only in my personal life, but in a professional setting and feel confident I can deliver great photos to my clients. An added bonus was that Alpine Film Lab was there so that we could start a relationship with a great lab and know the process of how to get our film developed and delivered to clients.
Sam didn't leave anything out. If you want to learn film or be more intentional with how you shoot take this class! It was worth every penny."

"Film with Sam was truly an incredible, indescribable experience! I have been to several other photography workshops, but Film with Sam is truly a unique experience. Yes, you learn all about shooting film and the nuances that go with that. But this workshop is about so much more than film-- I left feeling inspired, invigorated, and excited to grow my career in photography!
Samantha truly cares about each individual in her workshop-- she is a patient, kind, and amazing teacher! I felt safe asking as many questions as I wanted, and she really took the time to make sure everyone understood what we were doing and how to do it themselves. Watching Sam put all she was teaching us to work was an invaluable experience. If you are on the fence about whether or not this workshop is for you-- just DO IT! You won't be sorry! "
