I'm Sam.

Graduate from Stony Brook University with English and Political Science degrees.

I like to learn. Teach me anything, and we will be friends. Languages are a special interest: I know French and Latin, a little bit of Japanese and Italian. Let's have a party and speak to each other in tongues.

I shoot with a Nikon D3000 and an older Pentax. You will usually find me with a camera wherever I go. Also, a pen and notebook for stray thoughts.

I fight fires as a volunteer. There is nothing more rewarding; I recommend everyone try it out.

I live on a barrier island called Fire Island (off of LI), and am a pretty stereotypical Islander, which I would like to call the four S living: Surfing, Smoking, Swimming, Sex(ing).

My life, how I live it, and my thinking has radically changed in the past couple of months. And I like it.

Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here's how.

boomeyer:

I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

Learning to…

Funny thing about people, they’re usually human, regardless of bravado or image.

Usually.

Waiting For the Perfect Shot with @deni_perez

To see more of Denise’s visual storytelling around Brazil, follow @deni_perez on Instagram.

Rio de Janeiro Instagrammer Denise Perez (@deni_perez ) provides a glimpse into the vast country of Brazil. As she explains, her love for photography allows her to step into and share worlds that are not her own: “I love photography’s transformative power. It lets you reveal beauty in scenes which are often considered ugly or unworthy of attention.” Her patience allows her to tell many stories through photography, often catching her subjects in movement or with powerful facial expressions.

In one particular case, Denise captured an image of a bird flying past a woman on Rio de Janeiro’s beach, Praia Leme. “Most people see this image and think it’s a photomontage. I’ve heard it all, from the bird being a backpack, a costume or some sort of hair decoration. Some people even call it ‘the photo of the dead bird,’ and others attribute this photograph to pure luck.” For Denise, a good photograph depends on luck and a lot of patience, “I saw the pigeon coming and I waited for a really long time to get the shot as he finally landed in the perfect position.”
