Based out of Courtenay, Scott is inspired by the Pacific Northwest: the environment, the artisans, and the wilderness spirit. To meet this inspiration, he spends his time traversing the rainforest, exploring the ocean’s edge, and scrambling up mountain peaks in search of interesting and beautiful moments to capture. He shares the wonder of the natural world through film and photography in hopes of encouraging others to explore and protect this place we call home.
