“My mission in photography is to make a difference…
in your hearts, and on this land.”
~ Sam Clark
Sam has had a love affair with Africa since she can remember, venturing there for the first time in 2009.
Visiting as a professional landscape photographer, Sam’s passion for the African wildlife and the deep spiritual connection she felt, converted her to pursue full time African Wildlife Photography, with images now sold worldwide.
With the deep respect for all living creatures, and compassion to look after them, came the natural progression into the world of conservation. Sam is a firm believer that photography plays an important role in the conservation industry. ‘If we can educate people, evoke emotion, encouraging people to feel compassion towards our wildlife through powerful imagery, then people will want to look after and protect what we have’ says Sam.
Sam uses her images to raise funding towards several conservation and humanitarian organizations and is the founder of Lions Bridge – United in spirit, in life!
Now running small group African photographic safaris and even though photography based, all have an underlying conservation awareness incorporated into each itinerary.
Sam currently leads her ‘Passion for Primates’ Photo Safari to Uganda in January and July with focus on the endangered Mountain Gorillas, and work of the Gorilla Doctors.
In September/October, Sam runs her ‘Big Paws and Little Tuskers’ Photo Safari to Kenya and Tanzania inclusive of clients personal baby Elephant adoption.
She also organizes volunteers for Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary, a home to many rescued big cats from around the world.
As well as Giclee prints; Sam also carries her ‘Wild Living’ Home and Office Decor series to include; cushion covers, purses and bags, bookmarks, cards, magnets and journals with her lines continually expanding. She also hopes to publish a book in the near future.
Originally from New Zealand, Sam now resides in Melbourne, Australia with her two children and cats.
