Today we’d like to introduce you to Sam Nease.
Sam, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Long before I officially entered into the photography industry, capturing and immortalizing moments in time has been a consistent source of enjoyment. During my time in the Army, I found myself lost in the beauty of nature, early morning sunsets, and moments of brief peace that I would need to maintain a positive outlook.
I take great pride in seizing pictorial opportunities that fully encapsulate the innate artistry of a landscape, person or experience. When editing my images, I seek to epitomize the natural beauty captured within the photo. Being able to share my passion with my clients and having the opportunity to document a portion of their journey is what motivates me to continually hone my craft and skills.
Although I am just beginning to unfold my love for photography, I hope to soon distribute my images across the great state of Texas. I find many photographers print their images on unique paper or canvas’s that are unaffordable. My goal is to reach anyone who is looking to add a personal touch to their home, office, or personal space, at an affordable price. My work is based on my travels with no real theme. Due to my adventurous personality, you’ll find many of them include nature, sunsets, beaches, or mountains.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My hope is that those who view my work, share my work, or purchase my work, see what I see in the photo. Every photo I take has meaning. Sometimes it’s very obvious and other times it’s not, but at the end of the day I hope that my photos portray something new to the viewers eye. A chance to see through another viewpoint and lens.
The world is so incredibly vast and sometimes people travel to other continents to find peace or paradise. My intent is to showcase and document the areas close to home, as well as areas outside of our beautiful state, creating images that follow no rhyme or reason. The more you try to follow a trend or another artist, the more you lose your perspective. Perspectives are constantly changing and mine is no different.
What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
Many people who know me, know that I love photography. The ones who do not know, but find out later, are typically surprised because of my outgoing personality. I don’t know why they feel as if you can’t be both. Or why they feel that most artists are introverts. Maybe this is true, but to be honest, I find that artists are the most extroverted individuals. Constantly striving to be heard, not necessarily through their words, but through their art.
My advice to anyone that feels alone or segregated, is to be loud in your art. Don’t be afraid to stretch the norm. Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion in your art. I can guarantee there will be at least one person that will connect with you. That one person is all it takes to feel unified.
