7 p.m. Program

Take a virtual trip with Scott to experience behind the scenes traveling to exotic places as he photographs Wildlife and Nature photography. There can be some less than desirable
forms of transportation and always incredible people with very different cultures. Most of all it’s about the incredible images obtained from braving the unknown and conquering common fears of traveling abroad.

Scott has been using a camera since he was 6 years old and at 13, landed his first job as an assistant for a local wedding studio. Later he worked with several local Professional Photography Studios while attending the School of Visual Artis in Manhattan. After he graduated, he opened a Long Island based studio shooting weddings, parties and portraiture. In 2015 Scott was awarded his PPA Master Photographer degree; and in 2018 a PPA Master Craftsman degree. In the last 20 years, Scott has had a wide range of clients including celebrities like Phil Collins and Ellen Barkin. Scott spent the last ten years working with predators in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks using the areas as his winter playgrounds.
