Updated: Mar 2, 2020
Sam Shoge, owner and proprietor of Shore Studios, uses aerial drone photography to tell stories. Working mostly during sunrise and sunset, Shoge seeks golden light, dynamic skies, and magical, fleeting moments in his documentary-style images. He is interested in Eastern Shore landscapes.
Never formally trained in art, Shoge was drawn to drones as a tech-savvy adult who had long been seeking a creative outlet. The new horizons of drone photography provided a maker’s path for Shoge, drawing on his personal passions — technological innovation, rural landscapes, rural community, and support for regional businesses.
Shoge constantly works to hone and refresh his craft and is given plenty of opportunity to do so by the constant innovations in drone photography and video.
