Portrait number 9. Sam’s right hand is out of the frame but that almost says as much about who she is as the rest of the image; nothing holds this girl back, not even the edge of my viewfinder…. The plaid shirt worn as a cape, the confident hand on the hip, the well worn Vans shoes and her obvious excellent taste in beer are all clues. Sam lives life like she plays rugby: take-no-shit, full throttle, no-holds-barred commitment. ‘STAY GOLD’ is tattooed on that right hand. Sam, I couldn’t agree more.
