Scott Anderson, Orange County, California Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement "A professional lifestyle and fine art photographer based in Southern California, Scott spends much of his time being perpetually curious behind the camera."
It was a Saturday afternoon in the Summer of 1981. My Dad bought me a Nikon camera and a 50mm lens. Twenty seven year later and I still vividly recall loading and then developing that first roll of film (a favorite photo being of a “duck-crossing” sign I discovered at a nearby park). From that moment forward I began to “see” the world differently. Next came a darkroom, numerous photo workshops, and a passion for photography that continues to grow richer every day.
I’ve become a believer in the philosophy that “I don’t take pictures, they take me.” From the subtle shifts in light along the Pacific coast and valleys to the candid expressions of my children -- I hope to remain perpetually curious about the moments that surround me (and always have my camera within reaching distance).
On the personal front, I’m grateful for the support and encouragement of my family and friends. This includes my wife and three children (keeping me laughing and smiling every day). We make our home in Orange County, California.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the ImageKind community of talented artists, and feel honored to share my work with you. Thank you for visiting, and I extend my heartfelt gratitude for those among you that chose to invest in my images!
