Hi, I’m Scott.

I’m a Minneapolis-based photographer who takes documentary photos of people.


Why I'm a photographer

I believe all people have value and worth. So I aim to take photos that portray each person with beautiful realism, sincere honesty, and utmost dignity.

At each photo shoot, I try to build a connection with my clients and help them feel comfortable with the camera. When my clients receive their photos, I hope they feel proud of who they are and see what makes them unique.

I share my photos as I'm shooting so people can see what they look like in the frame and feel more comfortable.

The best part of my job is meeting interesting people and experiencing their world.

My experience


I’ve spent two decades building a successful career as a freelance photographer working with a wide range of clients, including corporations, nonprofit organizations, individuals, and magazines. 

For these assignments, I've traveled to all corners of the United States as well as Latin America, Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean.

Some of my accomplishments:

  • Received a Kodak Purchase award for my work with Doctors Without Borders
  • Received grants from the Family Housing Fund for my photographic work with the homeless
  • Received grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council for my work with seniors
  • Given lectures about my photography for Calumet and Fuji
  • Featured in notable publications, such as Leica Fotografie International

My passion for nonprofits

Regardless of budget, I believe that all nonprofit groups deserve good photography that accurately portrays their mission.  

If you represent a nonprofit group with little, or no, budget for photography, please contact me to see how I can help.
