Have to say farewell to an undiscovered wonderful photographer. Just found out my wife's cousin passed away do to heart failure. He has had a rough life of health, mental, and drug problems that his body could handle no longer. I never had the pleasure of meeting him but I have heard some great and sad stories of his life. The link to his site has some great work but what no one can find is his dramatic post production work. I've only seen one of a lone tree in a creek that he applied some technique that was out of this world. I wish I had been able to meet and work with him. I think the very first image tells you so much about him.

My condolences to you and your family for the loss of your wife's cousin, Mike. I know that it can be difficult dealing with the decease of a family member.

By taking a look at his website, I can clearly see that Samuel was an extremely talented photographer. It's a shame that nobody can find his PP work, by looking at the images on his site, I can only imaging what could've been done with them in Photoshop.

Again, I'm deeply sorry for your loss.
