We had the good fortune of connecting with Samuel Goodson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Samuel, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I’ve always been someone who thinks differently then everyone else. Whether it be sports topics or solving problems, I always found myself thinking outside the box. As far as getting into photography, I guess I finally chose to take it seriously after hearing for years that I took good pictures. It’s been a fun experience since I began and I’m looking for to what’s next to come.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m honestly far from where I want to be as photographer but I am making steady progress getting there. The biggest obstacle was mainly believing in myself to start. We always fear failing something before we even start which I’ve learned is only holding yourself from being something great. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to stay consistent and everything else will fall in place. It honestly seems when I’m not actively pursuing clients is when I get them most but I’m still perfecting my craft behind scenes to make sure I’m ready. What I want people to know about Samshotme is that you are not only getting your picture taken but an experience of great customer service that I hope makes you feel right at home.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite spots in the city would have to be downtown. It’s a variety of places for me as a photographer, great food places, and you can find interesting people to meet all the time.
