- Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but, by the moments that take our breath away.
“Making the inaccessible, accessible” – this is not a mere tagline. Some of the images captured are a bit risky. When risky, I am so fortunate to be accompanied by a back country professional. They have both the knowledge and training where I lack. As we hike / ski, they are thinking about safety while I am thinking as to the best way to compose the shot. I am so grateful to them and count them as dear friends.
At an early age it was clear that Scott had a unique “ability to see”. Growing up attending photo shoots with his father, an Art Director at Kodak, Scott began his journey by learning the basics of photography. During this time, he had the opportunity to meet many photographers with different styles and viewpoints including a talented group at the New York Art Directors Club who encouraged him to hone his craft.
As an avid skier, Scott began to realize the need for further support of the Avalanche Rescue Dog programs, thus started to raise funds for the programs via his photograph. He started visiting various ski patrol huts throughout the west to photograph the dogs and other search and rescue teams to raise awareness of their life-saving work. His photographs quickly spread and have been featured in magazines and digital advertising.
Scott’s years of experience taking pictures has led him to realize that photography is not about the camera or equipment, it’s about the mind’s eye. “Why would you waste your time indoors editing images when you could be outdoors perfecting the skill of capturing incredible shots and meeting people along the journey?”
Scott has stayed true to the guidance of his father by honing his “ability to see” the image.
Our vision is driven by the famous quote: ”Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but, by the moments that take our breath away.”
Scott is grateful for the encouragement, guidance and generosity along the way from his many mentors. And the journey continues…”
