We had the good fortune of connecting with Samuel Lippke and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Samuel, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to create a Photo Studio to focus on documenting peoples real life experiences through my photography. To take an image that would bring my clients back to the feeling, the excitement and the emotions of the moment. I’ve always loved being able to cement and enhance incredible moments with my art.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My work and photo style is described as being centered around fashion & photojournalism. Beautiful real moments with great natural lighting and a non posed approach. I pride myself at being at the right place at the right time to document those in between moments that often get overlooked. I love what I do, the different places it brings me and the different people I get to meet makes even the hardest part of my job worth it.
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.
I love this question. One of my favorite things to do is grab up my puppies, pack some snacks and drinks, a big beach blanket and drive to Laguna Beach to swim, relax and hangout, its so refreshing and even pandemic safe. I love a mix of being active with something involving exercise (ie tennis, basketball, bikeride, swimming) followed by great food and drinks (My wife and I have been cooking so much during this covid era) So really active and healthy mixed with lots of great food and relaxing poolside or seaside.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My entire family deserves a big shout out. I come from a hippy upbringing, living in a school bus in a forrest, homeschooling and learning through life experiences, learning to deal with ups and downs and finding inspiration for art in even the smallest details. Later in life, my brother played a big part in mentoring me with photography and pushing me to be a better artist and better human.
