Both Ed Scott's mother and her sister were artists. Although art was in his blood, he wanted to do something different, so he took up photography. He didn't become serious about it, though, until after his first trip to Alaska in 2006. Once he gazed upon the breathtaking beauty there, he knew that he wanted to be a landscape photographer.
Making landscape photos and living in Florida turned out to be a real creative challenge, however. Florida doesn't have the mountains, canyons, and great waterfalls found elsewhere, but traveling to the locations becomes expensive. He took one or two trips a year and would photograph photographing birds during the winter to pass the time. Soon he was hooked. Though he still loves landscape photography more than anything, much more of his time is now dedicated to birding.
His goal is to create fine art through photography. To him, fine art is a visual image that captures one's eye from across a room.
