About Me


The short of it:

Sam Beasley is a photographer of people and things, spending most of his time in the Memphis and Miami areas.

The long of it:

Sam Beasley is a photographer in Covington, TN. He graduated from Miami Ad School in 2008 with a fashion and commercial photography portfolio, later pursuing more personal work on which he now concentrates. After having lived there for ten years, he considers South Florida his second home, and travels there whenever possible. He has had work shown in thirteen group shows and events in Miami, New York City, and other locations. Photography, for him, is an exercise in self-understanding. This need for introspection and self-analysis brings with it more work, some answers, and (mostly) more questions.
