Scott studied photography under renowned photographers William Eggleston and Emmet Gowin in the mid 1970’s. In 2009, several years after leaving his investment banking career, during which photography took a back seat, Scott ventured up into the attic and rediscovered a number of boxes containing his old negatives, prints and large format cameras. He spent a good part of the next year re-immersing himself in photography and has been deeply involved ever since. This journey is described more fully in the introduction to looking back.
In September 2010 he had a solo exhibition, “Looking Back” at Hamiltons Gallery,London and all funds from the exhibition were donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Two of his photographs, “Evening Light” and “Untitled”, were selected for the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition 2011. “Choices” was selected for the Summer Exhibition 2012, “Waiting” was selected in 2013, in 2014 “The Other Half” was selected and in 2015 “Looking Back”. He was profiled in the BBC Culture Show in connection with his selection in 2012.
His work has been sold at auctions and to collectors in the UK, Europe and the US. All proceeds from the sale of Scott’s work are donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital where one of his children was cured of a life threatening disease many years ago.
A series of Scott’s photographs are currently hanging in Andover, Massachusetts curated through the Addison Gallery of American Art.
Scott is currently working on a number of projects, including an upcoming exhibition “Silent Moments” consisting of recent work, and a book and exhibition entitled “Above the Clouds”, which includes images and thoughts on life, travel and our overall journey.
