Interview with Sam Moore

Interviews

07 August 2015

Posted by Sally Hart

Hi Sam! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I am a Photographer and CAA accredited UAV/Drone Operator from East Sussex, with a huge passion for the outdoors looking for any excuse to be out and about taking photos, whether on the ground or from high in the sky.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AThere have been a few, but one that comes to mind is a couple of years ago I was in Hampshire trying to make my way out of a forest after taking photos for promotional material. It was getting to the end of the afternoon and light was starting to fade so decided it was best to head back to the car. I was following a path to the exit and just around a corner this bull was standing there, just staring at me… not moving, just standing there, looking very intimidating and blocking my route. Was almost like it was waiting for me. Obviously I had to quickly snap a photo, but in the back of my mind was, why is there this bull in a forest with no other cattle around and blocking the way out, and would I be able to outrun it If it came after me? so rather than make an attempt to move it out of the way, I slowly started to backtrack to try and find another exit frequently looking over my shoulder wondering if it would be following me. After an hour and a half I managed to find another way out.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AAt present I shoot with the Canon 5D3 and Olympus EM5mk2. My favourite setup is using the Micro Four Thirds Olympus systems such as the EM5, reason being is I like to travel light and it’s a camera I can take with me anywhere I go when using a pancake lens. When you have a DSLR and its huge lenses, this can be tiresome after a while when hiking up hills or traveling around, but the M43 mirrorless systems and small lenses have totally changed this which makes taking high quality photos a real joy no matter where you are or what you are doing.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AThere are so many tips to give for an aspiring photographer, but really something very important is planning ahead, especially with landscape photography. 90% of my photos are planned beforehand so I know the location, time and type of light I am looking for, usually the hour after sunrise and hour before sunset, and within those hours light can create so many different moods to a scene you could come away with several different looking images despite being from the same location.

'When it comes to bluebells if you blink you can miss them, there is such a short timescale between when they are out in full bloom and fading away, and it had been cloudy or raining nonstop on the week I wanted to capture some bluebell shots. The day I captured this it had been raining relentlessly since sunrise and with about an hour and a half to spare before the sun sets the rain decided to let up with the skies opening up to amazing sunshine. I decided to quickly grab my camera gear, drive to this bluebell spot in Ifield Crawley and managed to capture my favourite Bluebell photo ever. The light casting a shadow over the carpet of bluebells came together really well and the slight sheen on the trees from where it had been raining added to the scene nicely. ' Read less

'This was taken in the middle of the big storms we had back in early 2014. I was at my parents who live right on the coast and decided to head down to the promenade as it was a high tide and very windy day. The waves crashing against the wall were relentless but also made for quite spectacular viewing.' Read less

'I had been waiting a long time for a day like this, low spring tides at sunset by the Brighton Pier. With this shot I wanted to try and capture the seagulls in flight with Brighton Pier in the background and after many attempts to get it timed right, I was lucky enough to capture this shot with their reflections in the water.'

'One of my favourite spots in Sussex, early in the morning, just as the sun is rising, this was pure escapism to see the spectacular sight of the Cuckmere valley. Originally I went to this spot expecting to capture a bit more mist, but as it turns out despite the lack of mist, it ended up being one of my favourite photos to date.' Read less
