Scott in his own words:
“I began creating art photographs in high school in Wappingers Falls, NY with home-built pinhole cameras I made from shoeboxes and aluminum foil. After graduation, having considered careers in architecture and classical music, I pursued my interest in the practical applications of math and science by earning a degree in electrical engineering from Syracuse University in 1979.
“After one year working as an engineer, my interest in working with people, ideas and concepts led me into technology marketing and the world of advertising. Whetting my creative appetite, I went out on my own in 1987 as a photographer. In time, that led me into the fields of graphic design and computer illustration.
“My specialty was in-camera special effects – multiple exposures on one piece of film. This was when computers were essentially word processors. As computers became more robust, I rode the wave of photo enhancement tools could be used to support my photography and my clients marketing messages.
“My first gallery showing of photography in 1994 was sponsored by IRIS graphics of Bedford, MA, the manufacturer of the first giclée printer for reproduction of fine art prints. Entitled “Scenes of Africa,” the framed giclée print collection was first displayed at the IRIS Graphics corporate gallery and then at the Nature Company’s two galleries in Concord, MA and on Newbury Street in Boston. An appearance by Jim Fowler (from Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Animal Kingdom) made the Boston event a memorable one for all.”
