Joe Sameh Fine Art Photographerby Joe Sameh

I see things and connect the dots differently than others. That talent has served me well throughout my life. It has helped me in business, allowing me to take paths that others overlook.

That knack carries over to my photography.  My mind envisions vistas in ways others may not, I work to capture and share that vision. Sometimes it requires walking around and looking at the same scene from different vantage points. Othertimes I return to shoot things when I think the lighting will be hopefully perfect. Frequently there are delays, just like a fisherman, waiting eagerly yet ever so patiently for the right moment. Hours – days – even years pass. Sometimes that perfect moment never arrives – and sometimes, suddenly I come upon something stunning and unexpected.

The shot that has yet to be captured is my goal. The one others have not seen. The one you can’t get out of your mind. For me Ghost Bride is a perfect example of waiting with success along with a significant number of  lead-in shots before she finally came into focus.

While some of my work has captured the spirit of animals, my passion is for landscape photography. My wife and I moved from Chicago to Las Vegas to be closer to the natural beauty of the Southwest.

I am not afraid to travel off the beaten path, often accompanied by my friend and intrepid professional tour guide Sander Smiles, to search and explore the next grand vista.
