Sam Burton


About Me

I am a Manchester-based photographer working predominantly across the North of England. Possessing an affinity for technical accuracy and a clear understanding of the importance of narrative - I create detailed, yet compelling work grounded in reality. Throughout my practice, I employ a unique and creative vision supported by more than 4 years of practical, industry experience and an extended knowledge of classic photographic theory and history.

Practice & Experience

I am most interested in people and their relationships with their environment, the landscape, and those around them. The majority of my personal work naturally follows my interests and research; whilst commercially my work ranges from covering corporate events, to product shoots or producing promotional/marketing material. With experience both on-location and in studio, I have worked across the UK as well as in London for various periods of time.

Preferring a slower, more precise practice - my work is created using photographic film where possible, alongside digital mediums for both commercial photography and videography.


Available for project commissions, series/portfolio editing and retouching.
