camp create is a PREMIER creative portfolio building experience held seasonally in orlando, fl. our goal is to provide a platform for creatives to develop, plan, and execute editorial quality imagery. we also strive to teach about team building and how to successfully network while pushing creative boundaries.


camp create revolves around these keywords. it is more than a workshop. It is an immersive experience that provides extensive hands on learning for photographers, make up artists, and other creatives who want to excel in the fashion and beauty industry.

as the lead photographer, my goal is to provide education and hands on learning in:

  • studio lighting methods

  • set design and backdrop fabrication

  • editorial storytelling for magazine submission

  • high-end retouching techniques

  • team building

“I recently took a workshop with Sam and I loved every moment of it. It was informative, personal and fun. Sam gave so much of his time and experience and really made sure that we understood each step of the process. I left feeling energized and ready to practice what he taught us.”
