I have had the pleasure of having abut 8 photoshoots with Sam over the last 6 years or so. Although I do not like to get my photo taken, Sam is a master of his craft and does fantastic job in keeping me comfortable. I am always excited and looking forward to the final results, and I know they will always be amazing. Thank you Sam!
Hero Shot offers a very professional “head shot” service. I found Sam very professional and pleasant to work with - he’s an expert at calming the nerves of photo-shy people. His prices are very reasonable and good value for what you receive. Most of all - I was very happy with the results !
Sam was really responsive when in came to getting in contact with him, whether it was through email or phone call. My colleagues and I recently had a photoshoot with Sam, we all really enjoyed the experience and the end result. The photos looked incredible, phenomenal quality!
Excellent service from start to finish. Sam is highly experienced, personable and patient. He takes the time to understand client requirements and business background to help you develop a personal image. Like most people I was incredibly nervous and all my confidence went out the door but he managed to capture exactly what I was hoping for. Thrilled with the outcome and looking forward to the next session. Definitely sending my friends/contacts your way. Thanks again!
It was time to update my 10 year old LinkedIn profile photo, and decided that some professional photos were overdue. The Hero Shot team nailed it. Sam really understood what type photos I needed and managed to keep my double chin out of the picture! A very professional and fun experience, very happy with the photos and fast turn around time. Definitely recommended.
Great photographer to work with. Sam from Hero Photography, he was energetic, engaging, super creative and is genuinely a nice guy. Great to work with! Would highly recommend him to family, friends and business associates.
I was nervous about getting my profile photo taken as I had photos taken in the past that I wasn’t happy with. Sam evidently knows what he’s doing. He gives good instruction to get the most flattering angles and positions. He also takes the trouble to ask questions and find out the brief: what’s your industry? who are you trying to attract? etc I’d highly recommend Sam to anyone looking for personalised images.
Sam is amazing! I almost lost my hopes for a good head shoot, until I came to Sam. Super professional, supportive, funny. He knows, how to get the best out of you! I was referred to him by a colleague, and of course there is nothing better than a great recommendation, which I am happy to give!
Sam is a true professional and really knows how to get the best shot! He teaches you tips that will stay with you for life. Very enjoyable session and great shots came out of it. I've worked with many photographers and Sam is up there with the best!
Absolutely 120% recommended. Very good investment of time and money, and above all - this is so much fun! Exceptional service - Sam provides full guidance and support from start to the end, including giving the calls before the sessions asking if any questions etc. The quality of work is over and above expectations, Sam is easy to work with and listened to my ideas and suggested his. Great experience before shooting, during the session and post-session during the review and re-touch of the photos. The outcome is really great headshots that are timeless, meaningful and well reflect your real self.
This was my first professional photo experience so was not too sure what to expect. Sam quickly put my nerves to rest with a relaxed yet professional approach to the shoot. I am very happy with the results and recommend Sam to others looking for professional photos for their resume, social media profiles etc.
Highly recommend Sam. I hadn't updated my LinkedIn corporate photo in over 5 years and wanted another professional photo. I found Hero Shot Headshot from doing a google search and their high google rating. I totally understand why he scores so well. He is a pleasure to work with and amazingly skilled at getting the best photos of you. I've recommended him to my friends.
Highly highly recommend Hero Shot for professional headshots! Our business has been using them for a while now and we keep coming back. Sam is super easy to work with, very approachable and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. He really listened and worked with us to capture the brand we were looking to achieve. Efficient turn around on the photos too. Nailed it!
Sam was extremely accommodating to our arrival despite my constant rescheduling due to unforeseen circumstances. His patience and his friendly approach in helping us new timers were polished and professional. He also understood our brand image immediately and helped us create exactly what we wanted, both individual and team photos. As for the pricing, very reasonable for one of the best photographs we have ever done. Will definitely be visiting Sam again. A well-deserved high recommendation!
I am thrilled with my experience at HERO SHOT Headshot Photography! I came to Sam to update my professional headshots, which were over 5 years old. I have always found portrait sessions so awkward, but Sam made me feel comfortable through the whole experience and provided so many useful pro-tips to get the most out of my photos. I am extremely pleased with the final result. In fact, it was almost agonizing to narrow down my favorites because there were so many good shots!
Sam helped me with a few quick turnaround head shots. He was very responsive to emails from the get-go which made the process very quick & efficient. On the day, Sam was very friendly and professional, making sure I was at ease the whole time. He got my final photos to me within 24 hours. Absolutely would recommend Sam!
My partner and I had been trying to take some half-decent photos of me to use across my social media profiles, but eventually I gave up and decided to seek out a professional. Sam responded to my enquiry promptly, and I booked in a basic head shot session. On the day, everything went smoothly – I felt comfortable and knew straight away that I was in competent hands. I've just received the final versions of my photos and am very happy with the outcome.
I had a great experience with Sam. I am extremely camera shy and he spent ages with me making sure that we got several really nice shots. I have received lots of compliments and would highly recommend Sam's work.
I have worked with Sam for over 3 years and can not recommend him enough. Sam takes time to understand the brand requirements and his eye for detail is unmatched. We have worked together on project photography as well as head shots and every time the results have exceed our expectations. We recently got team shots for 35 people in the company. Sam took time to understand the space and background requirements to match the brand guidelines beforehand. On the day, he spent time with each member- making sure everyone was comfortable, confident and captured the most beautiful smiles. We additionally did a group shot that had its challenges, but Sam was positive to make it happen and he did with outstanding results.
We had corporate headshots and team portraits taken by Stephen. We cannot recommend him enough, he's a true professional. Sam also went above and beyond to assist with our booking to ensure everything ran smoothly. We have already recommended Hero Shot to our network. - From the team at Universal Lawyers
Such a great service. Sam really takes the time to get the perfect shot. I would highly recommend Hero Shot to anyone looking for high quality headshots.
Sam and the Hero Shot team have done an amazing job with my new headshots. I was always of the opinion that "any old photo would do" for my LinkedIn, not the case anymore. I went in with a specific requirement to enhance my personal image/brand and that is exactly what we have achieved here. I cannot recommend Sam's services enough and I will be back in the future when it comes time to update 'my brand'. Thanks again, keep up the great work!
Such a great experience from beginning to end - Sam was very responsive and took the time to understand our needs to provide the best solution. On the day he was very professional yet easy going, made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. All the photos were great, which made it hard to choose - Sam helped through the whole process and we now have beautiful photos to work with.
I requested a quote from Hero Shot the other month to do head shots for out entire company. Sam got back to me within a few hours and sent in a competitively priced quote. We decided to go with Sam and are happy with the end result! He was understanding of changes and was very flexible. We will continue to use him for any of our future needs.
Had a great photoshoot experience with Sam. He just knew exactly what to do to get the best out of you which resulted in some of the best photos of me ever taken. Many thanks to Sam for an outstanding job and if anyone is seeking a professional photographer, just go with Sam and you won’t regret it!
Sam was outstanding. Very interested in what I was about and keen to make the shots suite my business and my personality. I'm not comfortable in these situations but he made it easy. Spent way more time with me than i was expecting just to make sure he got the right shot. Highly recommend.
Sam at Head Shots took a great photo. He made me look good even with out make up. Let's face having professional pictures taken is stressful and confronting. Sam was pleasant, and efficient. I think that this is why he got such great shots.
I've had the best experience with Hero Shot photography. Sam is a talented photographer and made me feel at ease throughout the photo shoot. Sharee the makeup artist was amazing and made me look beautiful. I got my photos back within a few days and they looked stunning! I would highly recommend Hero Shot photography.
I can only agree with all the other reviewers. Exceptional service, massive attention to even the tiniest detail needed to get the perfect shot, extraordinarily professional. I couldn't be happier with my photos. Very highly recommended and many thanks Sam.
Hero Shot was amazing. Sam especially made me feel so welcome and relaxed. Would highly recommend , best in Sydney! Thank you Sam you're a legend.
Can't rate or recommend HERO SHOT photography highly enough. I was asked for a professional head shot at short notice and found Sam online. I don't consider myself confident or photogenic in front of the camera, however Sam was awesome and made the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable. The results are awesome and would recommend to anyone. Six stars!
I highly recommend Hero Shot Photography. The process from beginning to end was an absolute breeze. The quality of the photos was better than I expected, and the professionalism and experience provided by Sam is simply world class. Thank you again.
Sam and his team made me feel at ease right the start! Sam helped me with what I wanted from the photos and the team were great to deal with. While I was a little apprehensive before the shoot, Sam and his photographers were so easy to work with and we even had a few laughs along the way. Most importantly, the photos are great and I can't recommend Sam and his team highly enough.
I highly recommend Sam's photography, particularly his ability to capture essence. I came to my photo shoot after much prodding, but with reluctance. I simply do not take a 'good' photo! Sam made me feel so comfortable and produced photos that reminded me of the smile that I have been complemented on over time, which I had forgotten about and which is so integral to me. You really caught me. Thank you.
Hero Shot came recommended to us when we needed to create some head shots for our new website. Sam came to our office beforehand to do a detailed review of the site & opportunities for locations. On the day we were very nervous but it didn't take long for Sam to make us feel completely at ease & the results were fantastic. His attention to detail & effective use of light was excellent but seeing someone so passionate about what he does makes the whole process more enjoyable. Highly recommended!
Thank you Sam for your inventive style and in depth knowledge on how to use the perfect light for each shot. You have a natural ability of finding my personality on each of the photos and I will highly recommend you to my colleagues. with admiration and gratitude.
You know when you are in the company of a professional. Things seem so easy, you are relaxed and the results are seamless. Sam is an expert in his field, and controls the whole process which makes you feel very relaxed. Highly recommended!
Sam put our very nervous contributors at ease and captured the best images they had ever seen of themselves. Sam's professional and polite manner ensured a smooth shoot. He followed the brief to a T. We were impressed with the pics and delighted Sam delivered a great range of images. We would whole heartedly recommend him and look forward to booking him again.
Sam was a delight to work with from the first phone call. The consummate professional - patient, kind and funny. My initial intention was to get a new Linkedin headshot but I opted for the wardrobe-change package and was very happy with the results. I'm not someone who ordinarily enjoys being photographed in any context, however Sam made it fun and easy.
I’m so happy with my new headshots for my acting profile. Sam has great direction and felt so comfortable. Great quality, highly recommend!
I have had a number of professional photos taken over the years and my experience with Sam was excellent. He was incredibly patient and took the time to explain why he took certain approaches to each shot. Sam also provided some great advice on final shot selection and delivered the final photos promptly. Thanks again Sam.
I could not recommend Sam highly enough. I am happier than I could ever have imagined with my photos. Sam's preparatory guide was very helpful for assisting in preparation. Sam himself was calm, patient and down to earth in the session which was just what I needed. A great experience all round!
A few weeks ago I went to get some new professional pictures done. I was nervous about this as I am awkward in front of a camera at the best of times. One person's kindness and persistence can change a scary experience into a fun one. I ended up having the best day ever. My resting expression is a frown so to capture the shots Sammer Affridi had to tell me dad jokes for 3 hours solid. I wanted to say a special thank you and shout out today for agreeing to capture me just the way I am, for not putting me in a corporate headshot box and for getting creative with me. If you are looking at refreshing yours the team from Hero Shot Photography are HEAD AND SHOULDERS above the rest.
absolutely loved my headshot. Sam spend a lot of time with me to get the perfect spot. Had a great experience with him.
I hired Sam for an offsite multi-location photoshoot for our directors, as well as a headshot shoot for staff. He really went the extra mile travelling to multiple locations and working his creative magic to get the best shots for us. Sam is a complete professional and it was super easy dealing with him – he’s responsive, flexible and nothing is ever a bother. He has a great way of making his clients feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera so that he can get the best images. Everyone is absolutely thrilled with their photos thanks Sam!
Sam is an excellent photographer. I came to him to get new headshots for promo artwork for upcoming podcasts. He took lots of photos using different poses and angles. He is very friendly and engaging so that made for both an easy and fun experience. The photos he produced were excellent. Truly reflecting the image and personal branding I wanted to portray. I highly recommend him for any photos you need to enhance and build your personal brand.
Sam from Heroshot is a consummate professional. He takes his time and is very skilful in his craft. A pragmatic perfectionist. I was really surprised with the quality of the end product, never thought I could look so good in a photo! I will always use Sam for photography work given my experience with him .
Highly recommend HERO SHOT Photography to anyone seeking to improve their professional 'brand' and image through a set of high quality and well curated Head shots. Sam was a pleasure to work with and has a strong talent to get the best from his point of focus.
Sam completely forgot to write back to me for an appointment before Christmas. He did sound courteous on the phone though.
We used Hero Shot for a Macquarie Bank event. Everyone was absolutely thrilled with the results. Extremely professional service. No complaints at all and would absolutely use Sammer again.
Contacted them for some corporate headshots and team shots for my law firm. Sam came to my office with professional lighting and make-up and and got some extra creative portraits of us too. Great experience and great shots, would recommend.
Great experience, Sam is very friendly and professional. He makes you feel comfortable and the end result looks amazing. Highly recommended!
Excellent service and great photos. Wouldn't hesitate to use Sam again.
If you're looking to have a headshot taken for professional purposes (Linkedin etc.), look no further! Sam is both professional and friendly and goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy with the end result. Greatly recommended!
I am glad I chose Hero Shot Photography for my professional headshot. Sam is a dedicated photographer and is meticulous in his work. He spent all the time required to make sure he took the best picture of me. As a result, he came up with a few great headshots. Even an ugly ducking like me looked presentable on photo! I would highly recommend Sam. roberto
Sam was amazing! He was professional, had all the right equipment and knew how to get the best out of you for the perfect shot. The quality of the pictures to choose from were stunning. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Sam to anyone.
Sam was amazing book him now ! I had never had a professional head shot before and didn't know what to expect. Sam was a pro all the way to the end, made you feel comfortable from the start and the photos where perfect. Thanks Again James
Excellent experience doing a corporate bead shot. Sam made me feel very relaxed and at ease as I’m generally uncomfortable with photos. He has a great creative eye and some beautiful shots. Thanks Sam!
I was seeking a professional photographer that specialises in corporate portraits. Hero Shot Photography provided the specific package I required. Sam was highly professional, made the shoot fun and put me at ease during every step of the way. The results were fantastic, and I now have several shots to enhance my professional corporate profile. Thank you Sam!
Sam was excellent. From discussing what was needed, to booking in the shoot, to then accommodating further shots on set, he was just a pleasure to deal with. He knew how to get the best out of my team and I with regard the photos required. Plus he did have all the gear needed. A professional photographer that I would definitely recommend.
Sam is the real deal. He understands the "vibe" your going for, and goes above and beyond to capture images you love. My experience with Sam was relaxed, but professional and he ensures you are happy with everything. He is world class at what he does and i would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Sam! :) Jordan Scott and Belinda Saw.
Sammer blew me and my Partner away with his work. Exceptional quality for a great price.
There's so many photographers out there so i wasn't sure where to start, but I'm glad I came across Sam. I needed a LinkedIn profile photo and Sam took a great series of photos from which to choose from, and offered very helpful advice when choosing a photo. He's friendly, professional, has a great eye for taking photos and is value for money. I'll definitely be using his services again and highly recommend him.
I was needing some good-quality professional headshots after one of my employers requested it with my bio - and I thought I would try Hero Shot Photography as it had such consistent, high ratings on Google. It was a real pleasure to work with Sam and I am beyond pleased with my final shots! He really knows his craft and goes the extra mile, and makes it an easy-going and relaxed experience. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing headshots for work or applications - you won't regret it!
I contacted Sam for some professional headshots when I decided to become a company director. I really dislike having my photo taken but Sam made me feel completely at ease from the moment I contacted him. All the different package options were clearly explained with no hidden costs. Sam was able to arrange for my hair and makeup to be done by a professional in his studio before the shoot. During the shoot, Sam did a great job of helping me feel relaxed and less self-conscious. The results were amazing and I cannot recommend Sam more highly.
My partner and I each hired Sam for new professional shoots. He was a pleasure to work with, understood what we wanted and was flexible. We even got to do some pics together at the end which we hadn't planned. We're delighted with our shots. Highly recommend.
Sam took some great pictures and I am very happy with the end result. I would highly recommend Hero Shot!

I need to have recent professional photographs of myself quite regularly for work and I always go to Hero Shot Photography and never gets disappointed. Sam is a real talented photographer with a strong sense of details but not only, he is also very friendly and able to create a good vibe during the shooting to make you feel at home and relaxed. Ideal when you are not a professional model! :D I also ask Sam to cover when I have events and it's always amazing! I definitely recommend Hero Shot Photography!
After updating my CV, LinkedIn and other profiles, it became clear that I was also going to need a professional photo to go along with these. Out came the smartphone and after a very awkward half an hour of trying to look natural with an arm outstretched, I decided to email Sam instead. I'm not a huge fan of having my photo taken, but Sam really puts you at ease and uses his skills to get some fantastic results. It's immediately clear that he really enjoys what he does and wants to get the best for the client. The resulting set of shots far surpassed my expectation and were light-years away from my terrible efforts with a phone. They've already yielded some very positive feedback, so if you're looking to freshen up your professional profile, get in touch with Sam.
We have used Hero Shot multiple times for branding photography and corporate portraits. Sam is a great photographer, very professional, and we have no problems recommending him to other businesses.
I would thoroughly recommend Sam. Not only did he know exactly how to make being in front of the camera not so awkward but, he nailed the brief and the final shots and editing were fantastic. Thanks again!!
How difficult is it to capture the beauty and love of a toddler that doesn’t sit still aged 20 months?? It’s a tough one.. but not for the fabulous Sammer of Hero Shot Photography. Sammer was able to capture my toddler in the most beautiful photographs with his wonderful kind fun style. We have the most wonderful photographs. To top it off Sammer captured the true love between mother and daughter in photos that I will treasure forever. Thank you so very much for all the effort you put into our photo shoot and for making it all so easy and fun. You are an amazing photographer!
Thank you Sammer for a comfortable and relaxing experience, and I was really satisfied with the quality and professionalism of the photos. Look forward to seeing your work in the future!
We used Hero Shot for our business photos and were very happy with the overall experience. Sam was extremely easy to work with and moved very quickly. Would highly recommend!
One of the best photoshoot i have ever had. Very professional and has done quality work. I loved the work and diligence of Sam, great work. Highly recommended.
Sam is truly amazing and highly skilled. He took headshots for our board members and the final products were more than expected. Working with him was a pleasure. Definitely look forward to future opportunities.
I had my professional photographs done by Sameer and I was impressed. Aside from the obvious jokes about making me look good, he truly paid a great deal of attention to the quality of the photos. His attention to detail and persistence till he had the correct series of shots was impressive. I would recommend him to any professionals looking for photos for Bios etc.
Sam really cares about what he does, and went above and beyond to ensure I got the photos I needed. I felt 100% comfortable throughout the process and would recommend him to anyone wanting head shots at a very reasonable price.
Same was phenomenal with our shoot. He really gives it 100%, makes sure that you’re comfortable the whole time and ensures you approve of everything. Really looking forward to using hero shot photography again.
Great job Sam! You handled the corporate head shots with such excellent service. We highly recommend.
Sam is simply awesome. He is very easy to do business with, will go above and beyond what you need, will listen to your needs and make you feel comfortable. He's got a "magic" eye and will deliver the best headshots you ever had. Unlike other photographers he will work for YOU, and deliver what YOU need to be happy about yourself and your image. I will recommend to ANYONE who needs portraits/headshots, he is the best!
I’ve used Sam multiple times, for wedding and family shoots. Amazing shots, caught all the special moments and he makes you feel so relaxed and at ease in front of the lens. Great service too and nothing was too much. Great professional and will continue to use for all our special days
Sam is the utmost professional. His creativity, patience and attention to detail meant that the finished product exceeded my expectations. We now have profile photos that we've used on LinkedIn, Google and other offline marketing collateral. We feel that these photos are reflective of the professional, yet approachable image that we intended on portraying with our brand. I highly recommend Sam for all profile photos for any organisation.
This guy went above and beyond to assure I was satisfied with my boudoir pictures! His pictures straight from the camera looked awesome and that's before the fully fashion edit.. He certainty knows his photography with what works and what doesn't. I travelled from Newcastle after researching his work and it sure did not dissapoint!!! He then went out of his way and got me a good deal on prints and sent them by courier I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend to anyone wanting quality shots.
We used Sam at Hero Shot, to do some family portraits after the arrival of our daughter last year, she can be quite the handful sometimes. Sam did an amazing job and showed a lot of patience and good humour during the shoot. And quite importantly the photos were amazing, I can't recommend him highly enough. Great guy, great photographer!
Sam is a pleasure to work with. He listened to what I am trying to achieve with my business. At the shoot he was happy, friendly and relaxed which helped me to also be happy, friendly and relaxed. Sam gave clear directions which were easy to follow. The end result was a huge number of high quality, beautiful images for me to choose from. He is generous and cares about helping me build my brand and my business. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Chris Cullen - the Friendly Funeral Guy.
Easy to work with, totally approachable, quick on turnaround for proofs & final images which were (most importantly) brilliant! Super happy with the final shots! I'd happily recommend Sam & no doubt will be a return client in the future.
I had a very specific project that I required a head shot for. Sam at Hero Shot was excellent - he listened to my brief and embraced the concept, his understanding of what I wanted enabled him to guide me through the process and end up with a great image. Many people have commented very positively on the photograph. I highly recommend Hero Shot.
Summer delivers his job in an excellent fashion. We had a photo shooting of my products -I'm a leather bags designer, and also of myself and we had lots of fun working tougher that day! Photos turned out to be great and very useful for my business! Thanks
Sam was fantastic and made the whole experience as comfortable as possible. I left satisfied with a handful of great, professional and relatable photos.
Love your professionalism, your eye for detail, your quick understanding of my needs, very easy to go through the process in which I had been uncomfortable about! Sam is a man of great integrity, this shows within his work and his 'after sales' care, as a personal development coach, my standards and values are of high level, in which Sam left me highly impressed. With great appreciation Sam!
I've worked with Sammer on a fairly large event this year which consisted of several areas and aspects to the shoot. There was a high caliber panel, special guests, separate VIP area & attendees and the essence of the event being the company hosting by the Owner/Director. Whilst there were many points to consider and ensure these were equally shot, Sammer was able to cover all aspects and capture the focal points of each. His images were of the highest caliber and his turn around delivery was amazing. I would not hesitate to use his services of recommend him at any time. His professionalism and service is 5 star.
Just had a brilliant experience with Sam - was after some current shots for my website and Sam nailed it. I loved his creative slant and his flexibility with doing some shots outside. Super generous, super professional and super talented. Highly recommended.
I used Hero Shot Photography for a photoshoot for my fashion label and Sam, the photographer, provided an amazing service. He is very professional, can understand what the customer wants and with his talent is able to give amazing results. I recommend Hero Shot Photography to anyone wanting a quality photography service. I will definitely use his service again.
I'm a music producer and needed some professional press shots for my agency and promotion. Hero Shot (specifically Sam) was recommended to me by a friend. I'd also seen some of his work and was really impressed. Sam was professional and knew exactly what shots to get. I was super happy with the final results and my agency were too. Highly recommend.
Great and professional photographer. Listens to what the client wants and delivers a great produce in a timely manner. Great photos and really captured my restaurant beautifully! Thanks Hero Shot.
Fantastic experience during 1 hour photography session and plenty of great shots to pick from. he really took time to understand the brief. I've already recommended him to my network
Sammer is a great photographer. He is very creative, lights beautifully and has the ability to put his clients at ease. Therefore making the whole process very enjoyable.
Highly recommended, very good customer service. I was made to feel totally relaxed during my photoshoot. I can't say enough good things about Sam. He's a true gentleman.
The best Head Shot/ Corporate Photographer I know. Working with Sam was fun and the environment is very relaxing. Highly Recommend Sam from Hero Shot +++++
Sam has an amazing ability to bring out the best in you and making your head shot look sharp and professional. Highly recommended.
Sam is a fantastic Photographer. I needed some corporate headshots and i am very happy with the result. Thanks again Sam!
Highly professional and skilled, Sam was lovely to deal with and delivered high quality work for our company. Would absolutely use again!
Sammer is not just a nice guy to deal with and very professional, he is also a magnificent photographer and an artist, but most of all when you deal with Sammer he makes you feel so comfortable and his work is outstanding, highly recommend him to anyone that needs his services.
Amazing experience! Rare to find such attentive and intuitive service. Would recommend.
Thanks Sam for making our photo shoot so relaxed and fun. Love the results!
Sam's an amazingly professional photographer, he knows exactly how to get the best out of you without you even noticing!
Great shots, really happy with the results, and Sam is professional every step of the way.
As a very visible networker and trainer, I have to maintain my public profile and it was time to update my corporate images. I have many photographers in my network, and as a keen photographer myself, I have a higher than usual sensitivity to the person I want to work with. Sam caught my eye as someone with a sense of creativity and passion for his work that inspired me to give him a go. I was absolutely delighted with the experience and can't promote his work highly enough - cool, calm, composed but always professional - Sam went the extra distance to make sure he 'got the shot'. I ended up with an extensive inventory of photos that I will be able to comfortably use in many, many situations. Love your work, Sam! I'm now not so concerned about growing older and replenishing my profile pix! Looking forward to the next shoot.
Morton Real Estate
“Creativity and fun” From the moment we walked into Sam’s cool vibe studio in Waterloo we felt instantly at ease. Warm and engaging, Sam created an atmosphere of fun and creativity. Involving all of us in the process every step of the way. I was particularly impressed with how Sam not only put us in front of the camera but also behind the camera seeking our input with each picture taken. A great day – bringing out the best result in all of us at Morton Green Square. Highly recommended!
The best photographer I have ever met. He made the whole process so much fun and comfortable. The incredible results in the form of my profile picture on FB speaks for itself. Highly recommend go ahead and book a photo shoot with Sam, especially if you are scared of getting your head shot done...you will love it....
Sam did a fantastic job with my corporate headshots. I was struggling to make time for it and needed something urgently and he was incredibly accommodating and arranged the photo shoot for me at home on a Saturday night. I've received so many compliments on how flattering the photos are as well. And taking the photos was actually fun!
I needed professional head shots done on a really short notice. I came across Sam through Google, and in no time he managed to book me in, meet me early in the morning, and take photos that exceeded my expectations! The guy is awesome. Very friendly, professional and talented photographer. Will be using his services again. Thanks Sam!
I wanted some professional portraits taken after my graduation ceremony and contacted Hero Shot because I liked their work. Sam was fun and professional and produced a fantastic set of photographs, would definitely recommend
Top Knot Carpentry & Joinery
Sam was an absoloute pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable which resulted in some really great shots. Will definitely use Sams service again. We are extremely pleased with the finished product.
When we needed some new corporate imagery for our website, Hero Shot looked to be an ideal fit for the style and types of images we were after. Having just taken some new staff members on board, Sam suggested we bring some cheese and wine to his studio and and make a social event of it. The studio is gorgeous and the time flew by (I think we were there well into the night!) The process was all very easy and I got some great shots of myself and the team, who also really enjoyed themselves and loved their images. I cannot recommend Hero Shot highly enough for anyone needing great headshots for their team or an after work hours group portrait session as we did. Sam happily goes over and above what’s expected to ensure everyone is happy and comfortable and its a great way to bond with the team and make the process of getting your picture taken a lot less daunting! Thanks again Sam, we’ll be back!
I'm very happy to recommended Hero Shot for your photography requirements. Great communication, great photos and fantastic quality images.
It has been such a pleasure to work with Sam. He is very professional, patient and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Hero Shot to any of my friends.
Thanks for the fantastic photos, it was a great experience, very professional, great ideas and foremost the talent to bring out my real personality in a combination between creativity & business style - I love them.
I was looking for a photographer to take some professional head shots and after a super quick Google search I was blown away by the fantastic feedback left for Hero Shot Photography so I gave Sam a call right away. The session itself was great, Sam really got to know what I wanted from the shots and the results were fantastic. He went above and beyond to be accommodating and give his opinion, even after the shots were taken and we were in the selection stage, and also fostered a comfortable environment with lots of laughs. Highly recommend Sam, he’s awesome.
Very happy with his work and very professional. The only regret was i didnt go sooner
Sammer is hands down the best professional photographer I have had the pleasure of working with. He has this charismatic way of having an authentic 'elongated conversation' where I felt relaxed, cheerful, and radiant during our photo shoot. I went in expecting some decent photos. I came out with smashing photos, amazing advice on my branding and video setup and a friend!
After the person I was recommended was not available for the professional head shots I was looking to get I set out to look for an alternative in my local area. After some research Sam’s business was the highest rated and well justified. Being in the media industry myself the process was not new to me but it is nerve wracking when it’s you in front of the camera! Sam makes you feel comfortable and explains what he’s doing and I got my finished photos back in no time. Packages and pricing are all available on his website and he is prompt with getting back to you. Really happy with the results and would highly recommend.
Wonderful experience with Sam, and so many great shots were taken that it is so difficult to choose just one or two to work with. I particularly loved the job he did with my daughter, he made her even more beautiful than I could have imagined. he also had us both in fits of laughter which made the entire event much more fun than a 'dry photo shoot' Sam will become our photographer of choice for all family portraits and I will be recommending him to my clients as well Throughly impressed
I don't like having my photo taken but Sam made the whole process fun. I couldn't believe the images he got of me. The quality of Sam's work is outstanding. I would recommend booking with Sam to anyone. Thank you Sam :)
Sam is DA MAN. His photography is just simply stunning. I envy that, being a "pretend" photographer myself. He needs to pretending, he does it for real. He is meticulous when it comes to the venue, lighting and all conditions. A true perfectionist.
Great service and I was very happy with my final headshot. Sam took enough time to get the perfect picture and I felt very comfortable during the whole photo shooting. Definitely good value for money!
As the MD of a graphic design studio for over 20 years I have used many photographers in the past but I can honestly say that I won't ever use anyone else now except for Sam from Hero Shot Photography for my projects. The guy has creative flair, detailed eye and a most endearing personality to work with. His work is exceptional.
We all know it takes more than just a shot to get a professional photo. If you want a projected image to express yourself, then Sam definitely is the one of flair. had engaged his service twice and will continue to use his service in the future!

Sam was amazing to work with. He has a great professional attitude and was quick to answer any questions I had. He is very easy to work with and I am very happy with the end results.
Sam's photo shoot was a great investment. He's personable and has such a distinct and gorgeous photography style. He was very easy to work with. I am very happy with the result.Thanks Sam.
I had my business profile pics taken recently with Sam and apart from being amazing at his trade - Sam is truly an inspiring and authentic person. Love it when you get a professional WITH heart! I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for great shots with a creative eye and a fun space to be at your best... Debbie Pask, Director - Rezinate & Zenful Business
Having recently been promoted, I required some headshots but didn't know where to turn. Google let me to a number of companies promising lots of different combinations, many with no price lists. Being on a budget, I looked for a good photographer at a reasonable price. Sam's site met both requirements. He was prompt in responding to my online inquiry and within days we met up to have my first professional headshot sitting. Sam immediately made me feel at ease and the 30 minutes flew by. Within a few days, I received the proofs which I responded to. Being the professional he is, Sam made some suggestions from an outsider's perspective. I now have a professional set of photos which will last me quite a while. (An example is attached!) Thanks Sam for a very positive experience.
Sam is an amazing photographer, he makes the whole experience in front of the camera fun and enjoyable. He was able to capture the corporate look I was after. I can't recommend Sam highly enough!
Incredibly impressed with Sam! He worked wonders with our little boy who wasn't too pleased to be out taking shots. Despite how difficult taking newborn shots might be Sam was incredibly kind and patient and professional and captured the most beautiful pictures of our family. Highly recommended!
I think there is more to taking photos than just posing in front of a camera. I visited Sam in his studios for professional shots and I was really pleased with the process. I trusted Sam completely and knew I was in good hands. His direction and advice ensured that I had the best photos for my professional image as a financial planner. Sam, You ROCK!! I highly recommend Sam. Just take a look at my new LinkedIn photo...
Sam is a very talented photographer. He was great to work with, very prepared and the shots were fantastic. I’d highly recommend getting in touch with Sam from Hero Shot of you need great quality photos!
We needed to have corporate headshots taken for my company in Sydney CBD. Sam came early and set up a studio in the corner of our office and made it not only super easy but fun! You don't realise how much work it is to get everyone at ease and even laughing for the whole day. Sam did an awesome job. If you're looking for a headshot photographer I would definitely recommend his services.
Highly recommend Sam from HeroShot Photography if you require professional headshots, family photographs or product shots. Sam assisted us with our headshots and was able to make us smile and enjoy the process! The photos turned out great and we are still receiving compliments. Thanks Sam!
I had perfect headshots within 24 hours of making my appointment. Sam truly went above and beyond and his great pictures of me are now getting me in the front door of prospective clients! Thank you
I tried to take my own headshot as I have a professional camera and am not bad behind the lens. After nearly 2 hours, I decided it wasn't as easy as I thought. I was recommended Sam by my colleague and within 30 minutes I had great shots! Don't waste time with mediocre images, go straight to a professional and you can't get anymore professional than Sam.
Sam makes the whole daunting process of getting in front of a camera a fun and enjoyable experience. He is highly professional and the images I received were better than I had imagined. I was extremely happy with Sam's work and would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
Not only a great shot, but a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thanks Sam!
Excellent service and Sam is a very talented photographer who knows well his craft. He did Yasmin's head shot for the World Supermodel South Pacific and the end result is perfect. Thank Sam!!!
Sam makes you look confident & comfortable in front of a camera, even if you don't feel that way. I found him to be very kind and professional and would recommend him in a heartbeat.
I was visiting from the States and just had a couple of days for getting my headshots done. Summer was very very accommodating and had me come in to the studio the next business day and delivered me an excellent headshot the same evening ! Unbelievable service! I couldn't get this kind of service anywhere back in the US. The shots came out looking fantastic...just what I wanted!
It was great working with Sam when I asked him to take some headshots for me, for acting purposes. He is very approachable and friendly and knew exactly what he was doing on the day of the shoot, which made it easy for me. I was very happy with the end result and Sam even went out of his way and went to print out the headshots for a cheap price to save me the hassle. Definitely recommend Heroshot Photography.
I had my head shots taken by Sam and I was blown away with the results. He made the whole process relaxed and enjoyable. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thanks Sam
Sam was very helpful with my photoshoot. He made me feel comfortable during the entire process. He is a gentleman and a true professional. Highly recommend*****
Not difficult to see why he is ranked no 1 on Google reviews. Astounding photographer
Great space, excellent attention to detail, friendly, welcoming & lovely to shoot with. Highly recommend! A++++++
Angus Davison - Composer
I am a composer and I came to Sam for headshots for my website. He took the time to consult with me beforehand about what I wanted from the shots, and I was delighted with the results! The photoshoot was relaxed and enjoyable, and Sam was extremely prompt in getting me my edited shots. I definitely recommend Hero Shot!
The Hero Shot experience for me was professional from start to finish. Not only did I gain a great selection of photos to choose from for my various media and corporate needs, I now have a consistent profile across all my platforms which Sam helped me achieve.
I'm an entertainer and needed to update my headshots. Sam had done some work for a friend of mine and I immediately knew he was the photographer for me ! The whole experience was wonderful and Sam made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. An absolute gentleman and my photo's are beautiful. Thankyou Sam !
Very professional and relaxed. Extremely happy with my photos
Sam did a wonderful of interpreting the things I wanted the photos to say about me onto 'paper'. It is challenging to find someone who commits as he did to the quality of the outcome, and not just to getting it done in an adequate manner.
Easy going, pleasure to work with and most importantly, great shots. Clearly has customer satisfaction high on his agenda.
Contacted Sam on short notice for an urgent requirement. He was responsive, friendly and very professional. Highly recommend.
I highly recommend Sam due to his excellent work and customer dealing, all the best!!
Beautiful experience , great shoots, confident and fun. Thank you Sam
What an easy & Fantastic Experience, Sam was professional, easy to work with and overall results were awesome...
Had a great session with Sam, and I was really impressed with the results!
Friendly environment, latest technology and professional result.
I’m a professional Counsellor and upcoming author and came to Hero Shot Photography for personal branding images for my new book. Sam was able to arrange a professional hair and make up artist at a minutes notice. He brought some amazing and creative ideas to compliment my personality, which was incredibly important for me. I wanted Sam to be able to capture my spirit not just take generic photos. He did a wonderful job and the photos turned out great! Sam's style and personality allowed me to have SO much fun and I couldn’t recommend him more highly. My book publisher also expressed delight with the below comment: “These are really great shots and I am happy to inform you that these images exceeded our standard requirements! Thank you so much for your quick action” Thanks a billion Sam, you made what could have potentially been an awkward experience into a relaxed and fun afternoon!

We recently had our first lot of corporate headshots done by Sam at Hero Shot Photography. We are a long established business who have never done anything like a "photoshoot" in the past, so we were a bit unsure about the whole thing to say the least. The whole process - from the first point of contact with Sam through to the photoshoot and selecting the final images was an absolute dream. He made us all feel very comfortable and went above and beyond to ensure we achieved the best results for our business. Would be more than happy to work with Sam again in the future!
Sam delivers an excellent service - well done and highly recommended!
I LOVE my shots! Thank you for being patient with me and guiding me through each step. I felt very nervous at first but I am glad I took your advice and I felt very relaxed. I can't wait to show them to my family. You are an amazing photographer and a wonderful person and I will definitely be recommending you to my friends. If you are looking for beautiful photography of yourself or your kids - Book Sam at Hero Shot. The session will seem effortless and your photos will blow you away.
Sam is amazing! Do go see him if you want to get the best pictures of yourself you've ever seen. I was stressed about having my picture taken and yet I had great expectations about the result, and my budget was tight (his starter pack: best price you get for a pro in Syd). During the shoot, he was patient, friendly & reassuring, so I felt more confident and the result is great! Sam will be sensitive to your budget and needs, he will go out of his way to make you happy about the way you look!
Fantastic service - highly recommend! Sam is highly professional in his approach, very friendly and made the whole process really easy. I had been disappointed with the results from a previous photographer and was looking for some replacement corporate headshots. Sam is clearly a perfectionist and was prepared to invest additional time to achieve some really high quality shots. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer.
From my first contact with Sam, he went above and beyond. He was happy to chat on the phone to discuss outfit suggestions, and even called me on my way to the studio to make sure I didn't have trouble parking. His genuinely friendly persona and clear expertise instantly made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. Sam happily went overtime to make sure we got a good result, and we did! The whole experience exceeded my expectations and I can't recommend Sam highly enough!
For those daunted by the idea of getting a head shot - Sam is your man! He is incredibly easy to work with, and makes you feel right at home as soon as you walk into his hip inner Sydney studio. His professionalism and friendliness is amazing, not to mention his attention to detail in nailing the perfect shot! He's not happy until you are. And for the time and effort Sam puts in, the cost is great.
Impeccably professional and downright excellent! In what could otherwise be a daunting and uncomfortable process for the camera shy, Sam made me feel completely at ease from start to finish. His creativity and passion for photography shines through even the simplest headshot. He’s definitely the best out there and such a wonderful person to work with - I can only recommend Hero Shot Photography!
I had a great experience with Sam. Really good communication and the final product was way above my initial expectations. Would recommend him to anyone (in fact I already have). Thanks, Sam
Sam is a brilliant photographer. I am thrilled with the shots he took last week. They exactly fit the briefing I gave him and the session itself was fun.
Sam is amazing at what he does. I've used him for a variety of photographic services, including head shots and photos for clients in the hospitality industry. Not only is he creative, but he makes the process incredibly smooth and fun!
Sam was fantastic, very friendly, professional and he has an excellent eye for detail. He is also reasonably priced. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
If you need head shots or more extensive photography I highly recommend Sam & Hero Shot. For my head-shots, Sam went that little bit further to make the session enjoyable and bring out my personality in the finished work. Excellent results!!
Sam rearranged his schedule in order to photograph our 10 day old baby. He was very patient while we had to feed and settle her during the shoot. He was professional, courteous and had a great eye for great shots. We are very pleased with the photos and we highly recommend him for your next photoshoot.
Sam is so very welcoming, and has such a warm personality. He worked towards what I was looking for and absolutely nailed it. Could not be happier with the results. Thank you Sam!
Sam's great and highly professional. I was extremely happy with my head shots. thanks for the awesome work Sam :)
Sam has a passion for getting the best photograph out of you, and he spends the time needed. I was amazed at how good the photos looked and he was able to provide the professional, corporate look I was specifically after.
It was a pleasure working with Sam and the results speak for themselves. To say the least - I was very happy with the photographs.
I am still impresed with quality of my headshot.Sam is very professional and friendly. Highly recommend!
Sam is an excellent photographer with style and has a great personality.
