ABOUT SCOTT

Scott’s journey as a photographer began in North Carolina, while studying graphic design in college. He had his “Eureka!” moment while looking around at the Rolling Stone covers that adorned his apartment walls—and with that, a photography career was born. After photo school and several strenuous, yet rewarding years assisting top photographers such as Mark Seliger and Annie Liebovitz, Scott moved to Los Angeles, where he now continues his career as an advertising and editorial portrait photographer. Unique moments, cinematic mood, and graphic composition are all hallmarks of Scott’s distinctive visual style, which have landed him such notable clients as The Hollywood Reporter, Esquire, Christian Louboutin, Forbes, Taco Bell and Nationwide. His laid-back personable approach with his subjects allows them to open up in an otherwise tense situation. Says Scott, “Most people just don’t want to be photographed. I do my best to loosen them up with humor, music, or whatever it takes to make it as painless as possible. I basically trick them into having a good time.” While his subjects range in type, Scott primarily photographs actors, musicians, comedians, and designers—just recently he was awarded a win in PDN’s 2015 Faces Photo Contest celebrity category. Personal projects such as “Dog People” and “Cure Fans” keep him occupied in between jobs, with new projects for 2016 in the works. When he’s not busy photographing interesting people, Scott enjoys exploring travel destinations in California and abroad, watching every music documentary available on Netflix, and perfecting the recipe for southern banana pudding.
