THE Society House PHILOSOPHY
Collaborate. Explore. Document. Create.
GO FORTH + EXPLORE
We believe that going out to explore, learn, seek understanding, and connect with other people and places across the globe or in our own backyard is a beautiful part of being human.
We believe in investing in experience and surrounding our lives with fewer and better things. Collecting moments from the beautifully mundane to the extraordinary -and beyond the ephemeral- begets a more meaningful and vivid life.
We believe in not only the candid but also the created. Constant craft and artful collaboration inspires a life curated around a rich and intimate human experience.
“PICTURES PROVIDE A MEANS OF HOLDING, INTENSELY, A MOMENT OF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ONE HUMAN AND ANOTHER."

Founder + Creative Director
Samantha Zauscher is a San Diego based photographer and creative director. After dancing professionally until 2011, she retired her pointe shoes and tights for a camera full time. Inspired by both the intentional and organic choreography of camera, subject, scene, and space, she feels most free exploring each new story, project, or event as its own narrative, free from any preconceived style and ripe for collaboration.
She believes in the immense power of the human creative spirit, and considers herself the modern explorer: adventure + travel junkie with a healthy side of homebody.
