About Scott

Born in the US, Scott grew up in Switzerland, backpacked through the American West, and trekked Nepal’s Himalayas before committing to a college life spent mostly in a darkroom in upstate New York. After several years as an assistant to a wide variety of NYC photographers, he struck out on his own, shooting athletes and extreme 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 recently shot a series for “Mandela Day,” capturing the hands and faces of many of those who support Nelson Mandela’s message. 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. Scott is based in both New York City and Los Angeles.

    You pictures are beautiful, I have looked at them for the last several years. Did you spend any time in the United States when you were growing up?

    Very nice work Scott. It is all about the light and it seems your inner vision is 20/20.

    Hi! My name is Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a fitness/diet app and site. I came across your blog a few days ago and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in receiving 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    For your info, our site SlimKicker basically turns your fitness/diet goals into a level-up RPG game. The tracker will work with the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue
