Sami portrait by Andrew Mac.JPG

Sami Sofia Sneider

As a photographer, documentary filmmaker, and multimedia artist, I aspire to challenge conventions through visual and spoken languages. I seek to photograph soulful expression of our energetic capacity. My further interests are in oceanic conservation, music, human rights, and extreme sports in nature where communities push mind-limits and protect the environment.

I am Latina from Los Angeles, California, with family from México and Argentina. I just graduated from NYU where I studied Photography and Journalism and have returned to Los Angeles to continue documenting stories locally and abroad.
