My name is Rajah Samaroo and I love telling stories through film. Whether it’s a brand story, a commercial, a documentary, or a film aimed at festivals, I enjoy bringing my perspective and comprehensive experience to any project. I pride myself on a beauty-first approach that is more than simply aesthetic beauty. It is using light in nuanced ways to enhance the world that is captured, it is finding a deeper meaning to imagery that evokes power, it is portraying people in their most authentic element, it is using camera movement to motivate moment, it is creating lyrical flow, and it is done with the voice of confidence.
Having traveled from Iceland and India to Shanghai and Guyana, I've settled in a most beautiful corner of the world located in Southern Massachusetts with my wife and daughter. Being a father is the most joy of my life and they are my favorite subjects to capture.
Beyond that, I enjoy day trips around New England in the summers and vacations to my home country of Guyana in the winters. I prefer to explore the world on foot and on water by kayak. 
Since I started my journey eighteen years ago at Mass Art, I have been constantly polishing my filmmaking process to master the craft and refine my artistry.
