AmsterS@m, the International man of mystery&his wickedcool mobile phone cams, the S700i and C905. He's also using 'real' cameras these days, a Panasonic DMC-FZ8 and a Sony HX1 and Sony HX200V :)

I want to share these photos of the funky life in Amsterd@m, the best city in the world, with you. The early pictures are taken with my Sony Ericsson S700i and Sony Ericsson C905 mobile phone cams. Since December 2009 I also used a Panasonic DMC-FZ8, but I broke it in 2010. Currently I shoot with a Sony HX1, Sony HX200V, and my HTC Desire mobile. I hope that you enjoy this visual peek into the wicked world of AmsterS@m :)
I don't use Photoshop (too dumb) but I sometimes add some contrast&saturation with ThumbsPlus to create the funkyfunky 'United Colors of AmsterS@m' :)
Groups I've created, please join them ALL, thank you :-D

Thanks for being an inspiration Sam. You are a true artist and a genuine friend! :o)"

"I am excited to write a testimonial about AmsterS@m. First, he regularly comments on my stream and invites my photos to his groups and I just really appreciate that. Second, I appreciate the time he takes to write the descriptions on his photos and I enjoy reading them. He is a very creative person and very entertaining and I am glad to have come across AmsterS@m on Flickr."

Don't look his Buddy Icon, but look his PhotoStream ;-)"

"Sam es un tío estupendo! sus fotos reflejan la vida que le rodea en la ciudad donde vive, la cual adora, Amsterdam!
utiliza solo su teléfono y no para de hacer fotos con él!
espero que muy pronto se compre una cámara decente para poder disfrutar de su talento con más nitidez! :P
un beso grande y te deseo un muy buen fin de semana!

"AmsterS@m...well, what can I say, the Guy is a Fraud&Cheater, he doesn't even have a Camera! He's pretending to be a hot Shot, while his Mobile Phone is taking all these Supercool Pictures! Somebody call the Cyberpolice right now and have this Guy banned from the InterWebs!
And that Name, AmsterS@m...pfffft :) !"

The man who shoots faster than his shadow...
His crazy amazing phone (almost an extension of his hand :) is simply unbelievable. Hidden beauty, tiniest details, nothing escapes the S@mster's Eye who transforms everything into a masterpiece.
Amsters@m masters light (sun, candles, lighters, any light) as no one does... better sit down when looking at his photos, so you won't collapse!
Beware of Amsters@m's cam, he'll shoot at you before you can realize ;)
Amsters@m rulez! :)
