About Me

Scott grew up in Switzerland, backpacked through the American West and trekked the Himalayas before spending the last 20 years as a commercial photographer in NYC, initially shooting sports. Scott's work eventually shifted toward the athletes themselves and portraiture. This led to photographing many of the best creative minds in Hollywood, the music industry and the worlds of business and government. Along with his advertising and editorial work, Scott has created several personal projects including his “Scar Stories” portrait series, the highly acclaimed "Mandela Day” project capturing the hands and faces of many of those who support Nelson Mandela's message and a series of portraits accompanying the film Pop Culture about the fatherhood experience. In the last few years Scott has also made the shift to the moving image as a director on a variety of projects from commercial spots to short films and he has just wrapped directing a feature documentary about racing driver Danica Patrick slated for release next year. Scott is a Local 600 Union member as a still photographer.

I have been in the industry since 1998.
