This week we are featuring Portland-based photographer and fashion blogger, Sam Landreth.
Who is Sam Landreth? Can you share a quick bio with us — where you’re from, what you do, and how you got where you are.
I’m a wedding / brand photographer + fashion blogger based out of Portland, Oregon. I moved out to Portland about 8 months ago from Ohio to take a leap of faith & freelance full-time. I absolutely love it & wouldn’t trade it for the world!
Describe your personal style in three words.
Boho, earthy, girly.
Where do you get inspiration?
My photo friends, Tumblr, VSCO grid, other instagrammers.
What is your favorite picture you’ve ever taken?
This one! I took it in Big Cottonwood Canyon at about 6am with this lovely human, Marina. It was such a blast of a shoot & we were both so tired but some of my favorite images came from it.
What are your top three favorite Instagram accounts to follow and why?
@tezzamb— Everything she does is MAGIC. I will never tire of looking at her photos.
@evantsheehan — Evan has been one of my best friends for years. His photos have only gotten better over time & they are always the most unique + most interesting.
@neekmason— Not only is Nicole one of the sweetest people out there, her photos are consistently to-die-for. Everything she captures is captured so elegantly & done so well. She’s super inspiring.
What piece of advice would you give someone trying to break into the world of photography?
Take the time to learn & to be taught. Go out there & start shooting every single day & always leave room for improvement.
Last place I traveled to was… Glacier National Park, Montana
Right now I can’t stop taking pictures of… Couples in love!
I never leave my house without… Backpack / Hat / Sunglasses
A quote to live by… “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
Thanks Sam! Make sure you follow her on Instagram to keep up with her next adventures.
