About Me

Scott has enjoyed a career as a cinematographer and camera operator working on both scripted and unscripted projects. Though the process may be very different, the approach and result is the same: a sharp eye for narrative, a liberal application of Occam’s Razor, and twenty-four frames per second of story. A visual storyteller with his head in the sky but his feet on the ground, his diversity of experience allows him to be equally comfortable in the jungles of Central America, the mountains of Patagonia, or on location with a grip truck at his disposal. Perhaps it’s just a rebellion against specialization, but he believes that stories and clients deserve to be listened to, not pigeonholed. Whether his work is seen on screen at festivals, over the air on broadcast, or on the web, he loves nothing more than reaching audiences through the lens - highlighting the best brands, characters, and athletes that the world has to offer.

I have been in the industry since 2012.
