Richard Sammour born on June 10, 1980 in Beirut. Three years of cinematography has made my passion in lights and exposures...
During my first year at university and after participating in a photo competition; using my Zenith Camera; I won the “first award”: Best picture… Since that time all things happened have influenced on me and it was the start of thinking on how to be a creative and an expressive photographer.
I worked since 2002 as a Press Photographer with different magazines, newspapers, and agencies in Lebanon and the Gulf region.
In 2009 I opened my own company for photography services where I enhanced my skills and vision.
After that, in 2010 I started to focus more on the Conceptual photography ,
In 2012 , I won 2 prizes ;Canon Competition throughout MEA ; Best Picture from Lebanon and “World Photography Day “ which was an International Contest .
During that year I started my studies in photography at: “Institut de la Photographie – Paris “– graduated.
I started 2013 preparing for my first exhibition which will be ready hopefully at the end of the year.
My ambitions are to establish my own photography business within the next years and compete alongside the International photographers.
