WHO IS SAM?
Getting to know a little bit about Sam Sarkis?
“Photography is more than a job for me, it is my passion! It is who I am as an individual. Some call me a friend or mentor; my family calls me a Father and a Husband. But everybody calls me a Photographer. That is who I am and what I am known for. As a young man growing I had a dream to capture the dreams of others and bring them to reality on film and canvass, this was what I was born to do. Each day I walk into my studio, I thank God for allowing me the privilege of living out my dreams.”
