15 years experience photographing every room in the house, restaurants,
offices and other commercial sites, Mark Samu demonstrates more than an
eye for architectural photography. He shows an incredible knack for finding
the perfect point of view for any shot.
Looking through the camera's eye, he finds the angle that shows a room at its best. Then, with simple, natural lighting he captures the photograph. As Mark says, "I take what my clients create and bring out the best of it on film."
"Mark Samu's extraordinary photography illuminates the page wherever it appears. The strong imagery and clarity of Mark's work combined with his eye for color and composition make his photographs inspiring as well as informative.
I am also impressed with how efficiently Mark works, and how much he can shoot in one day. That's something I can appreciate as an editor with tight deadlines and a tight budget. His relaxed style on the set makes the day's work pleasant."
"I have had the opportunity to work with Mark Samu since 1987. During that time, he has photographed the vast majority of our finished projects, including such varied building types as religious, educational, health care, corporate, residential and interiors.
Due to the high quality of his work, we have relied on Mark's photographs to represent our firm not only to potential clients, but also to provide existing clients with photographic documentation of their complete facilities. This quality also lets Mark produce 40 x 40 prints to display our award winning projects in the conference rooms and common areas of our office."

"Over the last 4 years I have worked with Mark Samu on numerous editorial photo shoots and find him to be one of the premiere photographers in his field. He possesses a keen sense of light as well as a rare talent for finding just the right image to convey all of which is captured in his work.
His efficiency and speed cannot be matched. He is a true professional in every sense of the word."
"I have known and worked with Mark for over 10 years. When I was Director of Corporate Events for Ringling Bros. Circus, Mark was my New York photographer. I could always count on him to be there for the right shot. Subsequently, I moved to New York to become Director of Special Event Sales for both Radio City Music Hall and Madison Square Garden. Mark was immediately called to begin collaboration on new sales and PR materials. Mark is an absolute professional in everything he does, and I look forward to working with him on many future projects."
"With projects throughout the United States, it is generally more cost effective for us to hire a photographer in each area. However, we've chosen Mark Samu for various out-of-state projects, because we trust his judgment and ability to work without staff supervision or input. We've come to rely on his creativity, professionalism and the consistency of his work. And for ten years we've been extremely pleased with the results. We have total confidence in Mark's vast capabilities as a photographer and highly recommend Samu Studios."
