Profile photos samisneider

I seek to photograph soulful expression of our energetic capacity. I am relentless in the pursuit of storytelling. Intuition, curiosity, and conversation give me fuel.

As a photographer, documentary filmmaker, and multimedia artist, I work to widen and complicate conventions through my own combination of visual and spoken languages. As an image-maker, my further interests are in oceanic conservation, music, human rights, and extreme sports in nature where communities push limits and protect environments.

I am Latina from Los Angeles, California, with family from México and Argentina. I'm currently in New York City where I'm finishing school at NYU, working on my thesis in Documentary Film Journalism and also in Photography.
