An artistic all rounder, Samantha Van Stralendorff achieved her Fine Arts degree, majoring in Photomedia during a time when Analogue photography; film and darkrooms were transitioning to Digital, making her fluent in both. While skills in Photoshop are valuable, the essentials are still the same: learn about the light, composition and how to engage the subject, which Samantha teaches with enthusiasm, humour and patience. Her main loves are portraits, and capturing the essence of life with a sense of physicality and presence. She is experienced with photographic techniques people are fascinated with, the rules and how to use them to your advantage.
