My name is Samuel Dore and I'm a freelance photographer who's also a film maker who's known for being a huge film geek. It was growing up in the pre-internet days I would find out about the latest films through magazines and revel in behind-the-scenes photos of film shoots.

I have been taking photos since I got my first DSLR in 2010 that I used for my first unit stills photographs for low budget short films I was a creative consultant for. This was when I realised I could indulge in my love for film making and photography at the same time so over the years my camera kit has upgraded to the Canon EOS followed by the Sony A7 series and now the Fujifilm X-series with silent shutters which I use to this day.

Having worked in many film and TV shoots as a director I have a wealth of experience and knowledge of film sets and know exactly what to photograph whether it's behind the camera or in front of the camera, the key cast and crew and knowing how to respect on-set ethnics.

I understand the importance of stills for film and TV productions, that they contribute greatly to the publicity aspect and these are what makes my service as an unit stills photographer unique.

I am based in Milton Keynes, I have a car and am very happy to drive and work anywhere in the UK.

If you have any questions at all about my services please drop me an e-mail via or SMS me via 07841 825 127

I look forward to hearing from you!
