Sam Wells Photography

I started photographing landscapes and action sports in junior high, which eventually lead to becoming staff photographer for Carlsbad magazine when I graduated high school in 2004 which launched my career as a professional photographer. My commercial client base started to grow by referrals which lead me to start shooting food for San Diego Magazine, PR agencies, and marketing agencies such as Vitro and MiresBall.

I've been cooking and growing my own food for the last 10 years, and I love traveling to photograph food in other cultures. My love for food and the culture that surrounds it is the driving force for my passion in food photography.
