An LA Times photographer shared a profile shot of Sam on Twitter, saying even his profile is amazing!

I have photographed Sam a lot, and I thought I’d share my favorite photo today.
I like this for many reasons: first, I found it in the wee hours of the night in London, when I was looking at and editing my photos from this particular event – I had no idea I’d got it, and it jumped right out. It was a total candid for the photographer, but not for the subject! ? I love the irony of that!!
2) It’s very Sam, to me, as this photo captures him in motion, however very aware, focused, respectful, acknowledging, gracious, and mischievous, with a dash of magic thrown in. He was leaving the stage for the final time at a fan convention, here.
3) I love that he’s wearing all black and the background is all black, but his face is lit up even back stage. So many things lined up for this photo with zero planning. Those are the best ones IMO.
Anyhow, happy Tuesday, I hope everyone is well and happy xo
PS You are welcome to use this photo, but I’d appreciate if you either leave the watermark, or include photo credit if you post it. Thanks
