Curently i spend alot of my time shooting fashion shoots for 2 seasoned bloggers which keeps me on my toes as we are always in different locations depending on the outfit they have to promo. This has furthered my experince in photography as its always new and creative. Since undertaking this I have also aquired a couple of product shoots one with a wine company, the other with a watch company. Photography has always been a passion of mine alothough i have only come into it in the last 4 years. Previously i achieved a Ba Hons in English Literature and Fine Art in which I specialised in printmaking for my final year. I then went on to do a PGCE in primary years and then to become a reception teacher. This helps when it comes to wedding and family type shoots as children seem to really react to me in person which i can transfer into the way i photograph.
I am based in Margate, Kent. This is a great as it gives me the oppertunity to really embrace all of it's quirky potential, from the newly built Turner Centre on the sandy sea front to the old town with its narrow streets and community run shops, stretching down as far as the run down graffiti sections which as you will see in the gallery can be an amazing asset to my photography. I live here with my husband who sometimes comes along to assist with some of the bigger events, such as weddings. I have a beautiful 4 year old boy, 2 dogs and Ginger the cat. I feel everyone needs a hobby to take them away from work even if you're as passionate about it as i am with photography, but to keep my creative side active I am also a portrait artist from pencil and charcoal to coloured pastels. These can all be found on my alternate website “samanthataylor-art.co.uk”. I am excited to hear fom you all
