Sam Abell is one of the most experienced and accomplished teachers and photographers in the field today.
From 1970 to 2005, Sam worked for National Geographic as a contract and staff photographer and as a Photographer in Residence. In 1990, his work was the subject of a one-person exhibition at the International Center of Photography in New York. Accompanying the exhibit was a mid-career retrospective monograph titled, Stay This Moment. Since then he has published three collections of his work: Seeing Gardens, Sam Abell: The Photographic Life, and, most recently, The Life of a Photograph. In addition, Sam maintains a career as a writer, teacher, and lecturer on photography..
