Having a base education in film exposure and a practical education in digital media allowed Will to excel as a cinematographer while in grad school. He went on to earn LMUs Panavision Cinematography award in 2008 and 2010.

With a focus on cinematic beauty and human connection, Sam specializes in capturing peoples’ cultures and lifestyles. His affinity for traveling has led him to work on productions of all types and sizes across the United States, Western Europe, Eastern Asia, Central and South America. His travels abroad have taught him invaluable lessons in what it takes to capture stories while on the road.
Born and raised in the skateboard and surf culture of Santa Cruz, California, Sam found his passion for photography and filmmaking at a young age while making extreme sports videos with his friends. At Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film and Television, he was educated in many aspects of filmmaking but focused on cinematography, directing, and documentary film. It was also during this time that he expanded his photography skills, working in the darkroom, printing 35mm film for the first time and taking photos for school's newspaper at various school events.
Today, Sam looks to further explore the art of photography and grow as a filmmaker, expand his production company, Will Call Cinematic and continue to explore cultures around the world.
