This is Banner!

This is Banner!


I'm Samantha Mirzaee.

I’m an animal lover and creative photographer with an addiction to Oreo's (surely, I’m not alone in this?!) and travel. 

When I was a kid I took horseback riding lessons but school/life/work/lack-of-funds got in the way and I slowly stopped riding. Fast-forward to 2017 - I had the opportunity to get back in the saddle and I haven’t looked back since.

I found an amazing barn that has become my second-home, a challenging but equally lovely horse (Banner) to learn from and the best coaches.

I was shocked into tears this past summer when I was training with Banner and my two coaches approached me with a certificate gifting Banner to me. (I don't think I could actually speak for a good few minutes because I was so blown away!)

The icing on the (vegan) cake has been to combine my passion for horses with my need to be creative… and the rest, as they say, is history.


Classic and modern.

I have found that gently suggesting shape and form yields the most elegant results in my images. While primarily being self-taught, I have had the opportunity to travel around the world and study various techniques and approaches that have helped me cultivate a singular yet timeless style.
