Your Walls Need A Voice
Let Them Speak A Thousand Words
-- Samuel Quo Vadis
WHAT I'VE DONE
WHAT I DO
A Vancouver born and based photographer widely recognized for his creativity and innovative photographic methods, Samuel Quo Vadis finds inspiration in the work of great portrait photographers like George Hurrell, Eugene R. Richee, and Bert Six. In the process of evolving his own style he spent three years developing a photographic process called Angel Light, which creates an incredibly soft and warm light, but still allows for deep shadows.
Sam is fascinated with the Cold War Era, the possibilities posed by quantum mechanics, and the monsters living under his bed.
And "yes," Quo Vadis is his real last name.
Samuel Quo Vadis has been a finalist in one of the world's richest and most prestigious photography competitions, the Hamdan International Photography Awards. His B&W portrait, Serenity, advanced to the final round of judging against roughly 10,000 entries from over 150 countries. He was one of only two Canadian photographers to be selected for publication in HIPA's annual limited edition 4 volume book on the theme Creating the Future.
His colour portrait, The Embrace, took 3rd prize in a Canadian Association for Photographic Art competition and was selected for publication.
His work has appeared on the cover of Merciless Beauty Magazine and inside Fashion Faces Magazine, Imposter Magazine, Ladies of Steampunk, and Amaterasu Magazine, among others. He has been featured at the LAB Art Show Vancouver.
"Through Cocoa Butter Gallery I strive to create meaningful images for a discerning clientele. My photography sessions are carefully planned from concept through execution and post production, but always allows for moments of improvisation and discovery. My images are a celebration of people and culture...and the desire to make human connections through art. In this endeavour I work with the best local and international talent to deliver high quality photographs that are timeless and transcend boundaries.
This body of work is about all of us."
