An excerpt from Scotts Bio….”Each one of my images represents my own creative interpretation of a memorable experience in the wilderness.  The places and subjects in my images are all real, but I choose not to represent them in a documentary/photojournalistic stsyle.  I am drawn to the beauty, emotions and moods of nature and my goal is to expressively communicate my feelings about these experiences.  I seek to establish meaningful connections with the places and subjects I photograh and aspire to show the viewer why these places are important to me and why they are worth preserving for future generations.  I feel my most successful images are the ones that represent something behond the obvious and are able to communicate a message to the viewer without using any words or explanation.  I enjoy photography immensely and often find myself in a state of “flow” when creating in the field or developing images during post processing.  The flow state is a desirable position for creatives where they are fully engaged and immersed in their work and time often just seems to just melt away.
