Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

Stepping out…

…of my comfort zone that is!

The comfort zone is a behavioral state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviors to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk (Alasdair A. K. White "From Comfort Zone to Performance Management.

That’s what I did recently at the Walk From Obesity.  Normally I would just take pictures behind the scenes.  I guess my nephew said it best when he described me a camera carrying sniper, never knowing when I would jump out from behind a tree and said…”gotcha!”

Well, at the Walk this last week, I decided to step out from behind that tree figuratively.  I put myself out there for different people and groups.  If they wanted a group shot, or a portrait shot, I was there.  Now of course, I did this all free of charge.  I’m not to the point that I want to charge, I don’t feel like I’m that good yet!

But what a feeling it was to make myself available!  To say, “Here I am, follow the skinny bald guy with the camera”.  It was weird, but exhilarating at the same time.

The Weigh

Just another plus to losing weight!  What else can I say?  If I had not lost weight, I probably would still be behind that tree waiting to pull the trigger and shoot ya! 

Have a great day!
