Self Portrait, 2017



Hello there!

My name is Samantha Franklin and I live in Atlanta, Georgia and travel and shoot frequently in Asheville, North Carolina.

I have a photography degree from Oklahoma State University and have been a professional photographer for over eleven years. In 2008, I completed an internship with Brion Topolski Photography in Los Angeles, California. He taught me the value of a great bloody mary, perseverance, and crisp, clean editing. 

I primarily shoot photographs of places, people, and pets. My passions are myriad, but mostly include solitude, traveling, camping, reading more books than I can handle at one time, cooking, preservation of wilderness, and George Strait. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss print pricing or photo shoot requests. There's no question I'm afraid of, except what the hell we're all gonna do now that David Bowie isn't around.
