  • May 2020

    Sam was great working within the challenging time that is COVID-19. He was able to film an interview and b-roll with little notice and made our interviewee feel at home while also providing the footage promptly.

  • October 2020

    Sam was exceptional to work with on very short notice. All footage was delivered to a high standard in a timely fashion with strong communication throughout the project.

    "Sam carried out an excellent shoot under tricky circumstances: small children running around a forest." - Sarah Murphy, AJ+ Europe Editor
