Hi, I’m Samee—
I’m a Melbourne-based lifestyle photographer, digital graphic designer, and founder of The Kind Guide.

Working with you to drive your business in a direction that communicates with your audience is the best way to describe what I do. I focus on projects across web design, UX/UI, digital marketing, and social media content creation. I love being able to combine two of my favourite things—design and photography—to produce experiences and visual stories that people can connect with. Whether that be through improving the user experience or producing a redesign of your website; photographing your storefront, your creative space or large scale events; or consulting on how to improve your Instagram profile in new and creative ways.

Through contracting for a combination of entrepreneurs, larger organisations 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, Art Gallery of NSW, Finders Keepers Market, VicRoads, ELK, and Harbour Rocks Hotel.

In my ‘spare time’ I enjoy creating city travel guides, throwing clay on a wheel, collecting #neighbourhoodnumbers, and dreaming up inspired side projects. Socially conscious, ethical and environmentally sustainable business is something I am very passionate about, and as a result, I created a self-initiated online directory and publication called The Kind Guide that focuses 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, too!
