Hello, my name is Samantha Decker, and I am a French teacher who just happens to be a photographer as well.  I have dabbled in all sorts of genres of photography, but the majority of my body of work consists of travel photos, photos I've taken at Disney resorts, and photos I've taken in my home region of upstate New York.

My work has been licensed by such companies as Getty Images, Flickr, and the Walt Disney Company. My photos of my hometown of Saratoga Springs, NY have been featured in Saratoga Living Magazine and Simply Saratoga Magazine, my photos of my alma mater have been featured in Oswego Alumni Magazine, and my photos of my home-away-from-home, Walt Disney World, have been featured in two editions of The Unofficial Guide: Walt Disney World.  In 2020, I had the honor of having one of my photos displayed in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame as part of their second annual "Photo Finish" juried exhibition and this fall, another one of my photos will be displayed as part of the 2021 exhibition.

I am based in Saratoga Springs, in New York's Capital Region, but much of my work is available to be licensed worldwide. If you see an image you would like to license for your project, please get in touch with me through my contact page.

Beyond photography and teaching French, I have a passion for digital illustration, travel, Disney Parks, Old Hollywood movies, horses, and my cat Franny. All of these passions are connected to my photography to some extent.

Disclaimer: While I personally take and edit all the photos in my portfolio, not all of them are commissioned by clients, and some come from my personal collection. The presence of a person or property in my photo does not imply endorsement by the person or property owner.
