PHOTOGRAPHER'S STORY (featuring Scott Thompson)

U5drdwRn7PLTJeDTdTxV89LSXQyoxUT_1680x8400.jpg

''Hello, I am Scott Thompson of Scott Shots Photography. In 1994, I was attending college with plans on being a veterinarian. After a couple years, I realized I was not as passionate about the career as I initially was. It was around that time my grandfather gave me his old Olympus OM-1 and I decided to take a black and white photography class just for the fun of it. I loved the class!!! I loved how I was able to use the artistic side of my brain as I had been painting and drawing for years. And I loved how I was also able to use the science-loving side of my brain with all the chemistry and camera settings and gear involved.

After I completed the first B&W class I got a job at a little mom and pop camera store in North Hollywood, California where I got to work with professionals and I got to teach new camera owners how to use their new gear. In 1998 I started Scott Shots Photography and began to take on commercial photography work. Fast forward a bit, I got married, had a kid, and we decided to move to the Lake Tahoe area in 2002, where I started living out my dreams as a landscape photographer.

I still shoot plenty of commercial photography but my passion is indeed landscapes. I am fortunate to be able to sell my prints (that I print personally on an Epson 9900) at the Vista Gallery in Kings Beach, at other stores in the area, and through my website www.ScottShotsPhoto.com.

On Steemit, I have been trying to share a bit of the photo knowledge I've accumulated in the last 20+ years. If you follow along, hopefully, I can teach you something new!''
