I was born and raised in the small Hoosier town of Elkhart, Indiana. Being the third brother of four, sports and competition always have, and always will be a major part of my life. As my lofty dream of being a professional athlete slipped out of reach, I began searching for a way to keep sports a part of my professional career.
I arrived at Indiana University in 2011. This is where I found the media school, and fell in love with video production. I started working with the Big Ten Network in 2012, which allowed me to work directly with my all-time favorite team; the Indiana Hoosiers.
I launched Homefield Productions in the fall of 2014, just as I moved from Indiana to Colorado. Working for NBC Sports in the Olympic department from 2014 to 2018 gave me the opportunity to work the past two Olympics in Rio and Pyeongchang. All of this experience has allowed me to develop strong story-telling skills, along with an efficient and effective workflow.
I will continue to use the beautiful landscape in Colorado to produce stunning visuals, and perfect my craft. Creating videos is a job, an art, and a hobby all wrapped in one. I love what I do, and with my creativity and passion combined, I will continue to produce videos that bring your ideas to life.

My name is Sam Densford. I am from beautiful Bloomington, Indiana and that is where my love of production began. Coming from such a photogenic area full of lovely, friendly people is what shaped my style and personality. Having moved out West I have found a very similar mentality and aesthetic that I was so lucky to be surrounded by growing up.
I love being out in nature and chasing down the natural beauty of this crazy world we all live in, rather than relying on gimmicks or editing tricks. I am drawn to production because it never feels like work to me. There are few better feelings for me than seeing someone’s reaction of awe and amazement the first time they see something that I have created from a simple idea. Colorado has made it possible for me to capture moments that take my breath away, and I am excited to produce content that takes your breath away as well.
I have been fortunate enough in my career to work for productions ike Discovery, Esquire and the Food Network. I’ve been able to work major sporting events for Universities, CBS and Fox Sports. I’ve gotten to be a part of the biggest moments in people’s lives shooting weddings, or the first big show booked by an up and coming band.
I’ve been a videographer for documentaries and have gotten to travel shooting topical pieces for small businesses, travel destinations and people from all walks of life with thrilling, captivating and sometimes heartbreaking stories. Being able to do this work for a living is humbling and truly a blessing.
