Hi there! I'm Samantha.

I'm a visual artist and photographer based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. After graduating from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with a bachelor's degree in Communication Design, I co-founded NAMI 波 Studio located in the heart of Gastown in April 2021. Aside from taking photos, I enjoy illustration, music, brunch, dogs and true crime podcasts.

My passion for photography began in high school and it quickly became my main creative outlet. As a young photographer, I constantly seek to improve my skills after every shoot, learning as much as I can from my peers whether they are photographers, designers, musicians or artists. When I photograph people, I strive to bring out their personalities and capture their authentic selves in my images. Please enjoy browsing my work and following me on this journey.
