Samanta Katz

Photographer & videographer
Educator & Coach

The professional stuff:

I am a photographer and videographer with 12 years experience as a professional in the field. I have run my freelance business for the last 10 years, worked in ten different countries with hundreds of clients in fashion, travel and portraiture!

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Film, and a diploma in Professional Photography. I am certified in coaching and business foundations and have done loads of training in social media and marketing.

I am here because I have a passion for teaching, and I truly believe in the power of community, because in our industry, we are stronger together! I have taught photography in 6 different countries to over 100 student around the world,

The personal stuff:

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, moved to Canada at  age 16, and begun traveling the world shortly after. I am now based in Bali, Indonesia, I lived in 4 different countries, traveled 52, and speak 2.5 languages. Spanish is my first language, and the half is Italian (currently I am also learning Bahasa Indonesian).

Photography is my career, my passion, and my biggest hobby, but somehow I still have time to do other things I love:

  • I've been riding motorcycles since 2014. I owned 5 bikes so far!
  • I love music and I'm a classic rock kinda gal. I love to sing and I can play a few chords on the piano and the ukulele (fun fact: the first instrument I've ever learn was the drums, and when I was in my early 20s I played the bass in a band).
  • Going to the movies is probably my most favourite thing to do. I'm a film nerd, and I am mildly obsessed with Wes Anderson.
  • I love to read all kinds of books, my favourite three I read lately are: "Humankind: A Hopeful Story", "Surrounded by Idiots", and "Everything is Figureoutable"
  • My favourite cardio is roller skating, and my favourite meditation is scuba diving!
  • I love shooting film and I think every photographer should try it!
