"Some say I’m a Graphic Designer with a background knowledge of Photography… others know me as a Photgrapher with a background in Graphic Design… I offer the best of both worlds."

Scott specializes in Sports/Events photography but is well rounded having done weddings, commercial, boudoir, and portrait photography as well. He has taken photos hanging from 1800 foot cliffs, and from the summits of Colorado mountains, and around the world… just an example of the lengths he will go to to get the job done!

I love design work. I find it fascinating to change raw data into usable information with function and asthetics. I have done logo/branding work, layout of books, posters, and other print media. My Digital Media experience ranges from simple web banners to entire websites, to Flash and MultiMedia projects.

Please review my portfolio for some of my design work.
