Hi! I’m Sam

I run GRATEFULpony and I’m a passionate and creative photographer and videographer who loves working with clients to create exciting images for their projects! I started off my career as a documentary film maker for the BBC and travelled the world making programmes. 10 years ago I moved into professional photography and have worked with a huge range of clients over the last decade. Using a fantastic knowledge of light and storytelling we seek to provide our clients with visually inspiring content – whether that’s films or photographs. We’re used to working in a wide variety of corporate environments and we love being commercial photographers in Bristol!
