Hi there! I'm Sam Peat.

I love working with schools because I see each one as a unique, individual community with its own story. I trained in classical Documentary Photography on the oldest photography course in the UK. My approach lends itself perfectly to working at schools with a story to tell.


I'm a freelance commercial and portrait photographer, based in North London, UK.


In 2014 I graduated from Newport University with a BA in Documentary Photography. My final major project shot in an A&E Department, “Nothing Like It”, was published by The British Journal of Photography, The BBC, The Guardian, and the German publication Der Spiegel.


After University I began work as a freelance events photographer. I have worked for a range of high-end clients, including Bloomberg, Sony Pictures UK, Disney, Microsoft, HSBC, Santander, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Gartner, The Tate Modern, The Design Museum, and The National Portrait Gallery.


My way of working remains unobtrusive and candid, with a style grounded in traditional documentary photography. I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively with my work so far, having worked in over 36 different countries in the last few years.
