Sam Hotaling is a photographer and engineer living in Seattle, WA. As a frisbee player since 2006, it was only natural for Sam to turn towards
ultimate photography shortly after picking up a camera for the first time. He shot his first tournaments for UltiPhotos in 2019, and leapt at
the opportunity to photograph USAU's Master's Championships and Club Championships, earning the honor of Rookie of the Year in UltiPhotos's 2019
awards. Despite moving from Denver to Seattle during the pandemic, Sam has remained active, photographing local tournaments and major USA Ultimate events alike.
