About SabinaShoots

  Sabina Louise Pierce ~

Im a photographer born and based in Philadelphia who has spent the last twenty years shooting for some of the finest newspaper, magazines and corporate clients. I love creating images  from environmental portraits, food, news, business, medicine, fine art & fashion and animals, books and murals. Basically where ever my eye takes me.

I was awarded Time Magazine’s “ Best Photographs” in 2006 & “Best photographers of 2007” by the American Society of Media Photographers for my iconic images of Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro.

Photography is My passion. It's what gets me up in the morning and what I dream of at night.
Documenting, reacting, capturing, and creating what happens in front of me is play...pure play, and I am lucky, no blessed that I can make a living doing what I love.

I picked up my first camera when I was 8, took a photo of my little pony close-up and contorted. Though after getting that photo back from the lab it wasn't like any photo I'd ever seen, so at 8 years old I decided photography wasn't a career for me. I tore it up, put down the camera and never picked one up again.

Looking back, I wish I had kept that photo.

10 years later while at university I signed up for basic photography and to this day I will always remember the photograph that changed my life - two soccer players, a ball, a line, and a ref ready to snap his flag. It captured me, enraptured me and I've never looked back
