Hi, I’m Samee
I’m a Melbourne-based freelance photographer, digital designer, & founder of The Kind Guide. I work across web, print, curation, content creation & social media management for entrepreneurs & small businesses.

Working with people to push their brand in a direction that communicates with their audience is the best way to describe what I do. Whether that be through capturing an artist’s studio space, improving the user experience of a website, or consulting on how to improve your Instagram—I love being able to combine two of my favourite things, design and photography, to build experiences and stories people can connect with.

Through contracting for a combination of entrepreneurs, larger corporations and small studios in Sydney, London and now Melbourne, I have gained experience across a broad range of projects within the creative industry since 2006. Select clients include The Times of London, Expedia, Finders Keepers Market, Budget Car Rental, Pret A Manger, B for Brian, Peppermint Magazine, and Harbour Rocks Hotel.

In my ‘spare’ time I enjoy creating city travel guides, throwing clay on a wheel, collecting house portraits, and dreaming up inspired side projects. Ethical, social and sustainable business is something I am very passionate about, and as a result I am soon to launch a self-initiated online directory and publication called The Kind Guide, focusing on the positive change-makers in the fashion and manufacturing industry.

If you have a design, photography or Instagram-related project in mind I’d love to hear from you. I am always happy to travel!
