MY NAME IS SAM KOREN

Since I was a child, photography was part of my life. I will always remember my dad, holding his old Leica camera, taking his sweet time, setting it up for the perfect picture, while my brother and I try to keep it still. He used to capture those special moments and left us with plenty of photo albums full with those wonderful memories.

When I grew up, I wanted to become a photographer but chose film as my prefer media instead of still. My background in film photography still help me today in trying to capture that magic moment. After a long detour that introduce me to the internet, web design and web development, I decided to get back to the beginning, pick up the camera (a digital, this time around) and start shooting again.

I enjoy telling a story through my photos. I try having the viewers guessing what happened before and what will happened next after that frozen moment in time. I enjoy playing with light, colors and perspective as I try to capture the feeling of that moment.

I hope you are enjoying my work as much as I enjoyed capturing it

Sam.
