about - Sam Schafer


Born in Florida and raised in California, I grew up an avid coastal enthusiast and surfer. I received a degree in Graphic Design from Point Loma Nazarene University, where I found myself increasingly drawn to photography. The camera lens has become my artistic window to cultivate my eye for the visual world and utilize my creative instincts. I specialize in capturing beach culture and nature’s displays of beauty, grandeur, and power manifested in the oceans waves.

Since 2016, I’ve been working with and developing relationships with several brands, as well as print magazines in the US and abroad. See CLIENTS to view my work. The functions I performed for my clients included content creation, still photos, video editing, and providing the finished product. Photography included use for social media, retail POP’s, window, web, and magazine advertising.

Outside of photography and surfing I enjoy traveling, hiking, cooking with friends, music and making handmade pottery. See my ceramic art here @samschaferpottery.
