About Me

***Agency Approved Photographer.***

My Professional Photography Studios:

I have a professional photography studio in Irvine, where I do my photo and video shoots and teach photography classes out of. The studio is also available for rent to other photographers and video producers.
I have 15 years of photography and video production experience. Since I'm always busy doing shoots for clients, and most projects don't have a ton of creativity, I try to do creative model shoots for fun, additionally. Feel free to reach out if you want to plan a fun creative shoot.

I cannot wait to return to iWink studios for another photo shoot! " -Amanda Shaw (Model)

"The Staff at iWink Studios was very helpful and accommodating during my shoot. I was able to get the images I needed in a friendly, relaxed, and professional environment. I recommend iWink Studios to any photographer!" - Jason Ellis, Professional Photographer 15yrs.

"iWink Studios is a great studio to shoot at. There is plenty of space to work with. I loved how big the vanity was because it gave me and the makeup artist our own area to work in. I felt very comfortable in the studio. The space gives you lots of options in shoots. I had a really great time at iWink Studios and I hope to have more work there!" -Rachel Holborn – Model

"Sammy Z is a wonderful photographer. He is very professional but knows how to have a good time. I learned a lot from Sammy Z. He is helpful before, during, and after the shoot, which is hard to find. The work he did turned out amazing and his vision really came across in all the photos. I would not hesitate to work with him again." -Rachel Holborn -Model

"It’s such a pleasure to work at iWink Studios in Newport Beach, which, by the way is a huge, young studio that is fully loaded… a photographer’s dream come true, really. I personally, as a make-up artist, love the studio and the well-lit amazing make-up room the best." -Makeup by Rosy

"Few young people I know have such great personality and presence, and behave as professionally as Sammy Zargaran does. But it is his great sense of humor and ability to deal with all types of personalities so smoothly that sets him apart. His work ethic is incredible, not only is he hard working, but he has so much love and passion for what he does, you can definitely feel it in his energy. No doubt I’m learning a great deal about the industry in general through him, and I’ve only done a couple of shoots with him! I am so glad he reached out to me to assist him as a makeup artist. We really do make a great team and I sure hope he can use my assistance as much as he wishes!" -Rosy, Makeup by Rosy

It has everything you could want in a studio, but even more importantly has great service & is a comfortable & friendly place to shoot that really cares about the customers who come in.

If you are looking for a good studio near OC, you should give iWink Studios a try." -Vanessa V., MUA

"I went this past weekend to do a TFCD shoot with a photographer and a friend of mine who models. I am currently working on building my makeup portfolio, so it all worked well for the 3 of us and we each got some great shots for each of our ports... The studio is very well lit, has an awesome makeup room and great hourly pricing. I believe we got an introductory rate, but either way, the pricing is awesome. The owner of the studio, Sammy, was very friendly and even exchanged information with me in case he could use me for future shoots. The three of us had a great time during our shoot and we will definitely be using this studio again in the future! Five Stars for iWink Studios =)" -Kat (Model)

"I fell in love with iWink Studios. It was a very fun experience and everyone was very friendly. I can’t wait to go again for my second photo shoot. The photographer, Sammy, was amazing.

"What a crazy, wild and just fabulous ride this whole experience was :)
Thanks so much for inviting me to work on this shoot with you. It was a pleasure getting to work with you and the girls on Saturday. It was definitely an adventure to make everything work out, but I'm glad that I took the chance. You have a great energy and presence, and I hope to cross paths with you again sometime in the future!" -Isabelle, Makeup Artist

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots afternoons on Wednesdays or Mondays Melbourne time until March 8th. I'm currently working with another photographer to do these shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear and do more on location remote shoots. I have a CBD apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops, props & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna. My rates for remote shoots would be less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for and if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop and screen share so you can control the settings/shots & we could chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot.

The gear we have is a Sony full frame camera with a range of lenses available; 50mmf1.8, 85mmf1.4gm, 17-28f2.8, 28-75f2.8, 105f1.4gm, 70-200f2.8gm

Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
