"Nothing if not persistent." My name is Sam Raetz, and I'm a freelance photographer. I unknowingly put my photography career in motion when I instinctually reached for a camera to capture my time duck hunting with my brother and chocolate lab on the Platte River in western Nebraska. It was on that river that I realized there is depth and meaning to photography infinitely beyond capturing an image. I aim to capture not photos, but memories; not sessions, but experiences. With an unyielding willingness to tell the often overlooked stories, I aim to take daily life and points out its simple magnificence. Grit over glamor and hard work over everything.
I'm currently based out of Omaha, Nebraska.
