ABOUT SCOTTScott’s love for travel and photography collided at a young age & have taken him to the corners of the world to capture the beauty and intrigue that this world has to offer. And from a young age, in his darkroom, under the safelights, smelling chemicals and listening to music, he lost all track of time watching his images come to life. Although he has been using Photoshop since the beginning, it was the countless hours in the darkroom that he says made him fall in love with photography. He agrees with Einstein’s quote that “Imagination is more important than knowledge” as he says that his photographs let his imagination come to life.
Writing articles for Really Right Stuff, Scott has said “though I haven't shot film in years, I realize that photography is more than talking about pixels. It is about vision, ideas and the willingness to allow your imagination to soar.” He also loves to share his love affair with RRS gear as he tells his students” You have no idea what it was like before Really Right Stuff! Using their gear has transformed everything for so many and we are so incredibly lucky that we have visionaries that have changed our lives.”
Scott has taught photography at many schools across the US including the Los Angeles Center of Photography, the Art Wolfe Digital Photography Center in Seattle, the Sedona Art Center and UCLA Extension in Los Angeles where he still currently teaches and where he won Outstanding Instructor of the year for Photography and Photoshop. He has also led photography workshops for over 15 years across the US and abroad, which is one of his biggest passions.
From the faces of Burma, helicopters over New York City, the history and beauty of Europe, the eye candy of India, the wonders of the Galapagos Islands or the dazzling Milky Way and night sky around the globe, his images can be seen worldwide.
From Microsoft, Time, Newsweek, National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel and Leisure, In flight magazines, Wall Street Journal, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, CNN and ABC News to greeting cards, calendars, puzzles, book covers and bill boards, his images are used internationally. They are in countless collections from top 5 star resorts to major hospitals & department stores and are also on permanent display in the United Nations.
His photographs are also going to be sold in the near future in the former National Geographic Fine Art Galleries across the US that are soon reopening as the National Gallery of Fine Art. Scott lives with his wife in the picturesque town of Sedona, Arizona.
