As a child in the 80’s, Scott remembers the day his family bought a VCR, allowing him to watch movies at home. By his sophomore year of college, he was introduced to the fact that you can work on movies and not be in front of the camera. After graduation, he spent the next decade working his way up through the Grip and Electrical departments. Working as a gaffer, key grip, and dolly grip, allowed him to gain an intimate knowledge of what it takes to shape and control the image through all the chaos production can provide.

Now, he couldn’t be happier shooting movies, television, and commercials and coming home to his beautiful wife and lazy dog. He relishes the artistic, technical, and logistical challenges of filmmaking and embraces the collaboration it takes to get projects realized. He prefers that form follows function, and wouldn’t mind having his future remembered. 

He has shot award winning films, including, An Evening with Emery Long, The Misanthrope, Fools, and Cicero in Winter, and has collaborated on commercials, feature film title sequences, and music videos for a diverse range of clients including, Coach, Visa, Chicago WhiteSox, Insidious Chapter 2, 13 Sins, and Bare Naked Ladies. He works with film and all HD formats, and continues his cinematography education as a camera operator on network television, commercials, and major motion pictures.  A partial credit list can be found on imdb.
