Artist of the Week - Samantha Stuart

E-mail: entertainment@nnsl.com | Wednesday, September 17, 2014


Samantha Stuart has been delving into her love of photography since 2005, but it has only been in this past year that she decided to take her business seriously.
Stuart shoots everything from portraits, families, but takes special pleasure in capturing landscapes and boudoir shots.
She began taking workshops with photographer Dave Brosha in 2005, where she learned the basics, landscape photography and everything in between.
“It was inspirational,” she said on the workshops. “It was great being around like-minded creative people.”
Stuart had done photography on the side for years, but after having a baby and coming off of maternity leave, she realized she wanted to take her work more seriously.
“I wanted to spend more time with my daughter,” she explained. “And then random strangers just started calling me asking for family portraits.”
Stuart said after working for NWT tourism years before, she wanted to capture the scenery she was exposed to throughout the communities.
“I find inspiration in the outdoors, the light, the trees and the water we have here,” she said.
As part of Arts Week, Stuart is displaying three of her works at the Gallery on 47th Street. She is also going to teach her first photography workshop in October on the basics.
