Scott is a filmmaker and photographer. He discovered photography when he was in the 7th grade and eventually came back to it when he was 24. He spent hours drinking coffee and looking through oversized photography books at local bookstores while working on a business degree at a local Jr. College. The progression back to photography started when he sat down in front of the book “Workers” by Sebastião Salgado. When this book ended up in his hands everything changed from that point forward. That book spoke to his values like no other book had before. It was the first time a photographer had gone beyond the page and touched on something viceral.
His drive to make photography and films has always been fueled by a curiosity about people. This curiosity and the powerful images of Sebastião Salgado brought him to portraiture and eventually to films that explore complex ideas about meaning. His portraits capture a stark heroic strength and intelligence. His films explore the ideas that motivate our actions, thoughts and what gives meaning to our lives. He loves to collaborate with other creatives and always attempts to bring his subjects into the process. "The best work is a collaboration of different ideas that combine to make something new."
He graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. After graduation and 4 years with a well known entertainment advertising agency in Hollywood, he took on freelance editorial and advertising projects. Most of this work revolved around actors, athletes, musicians and influential leaders in American culture. In 2018 he made his first short film in search of a new voice that moves beyond what a still image can offer. With a love of technology, the beauty of the images from a Red Camera, telling short stories quickly became a passion. He now lives in Southern California home to some of the best surf in southern California and travels to where his projects take him.
