Artist Bio

Hello! Thanks for visiting my site. My name is Scott. I work as a kayak guide in the summer, on Lake Superior in the Apostle Islands. I live with my dog  Mukluk. He is an Alaskan Husky. In the summer I exercise him by having him pull me on my mountain bike. In the winter I skijor with him.

When I was in elementary school and middle school, my grandfather introduced me to photography. He was a biologist, so he mostly took pictures to identify plants. I took pictures of flowers, mushrooms and waterfalls.

After this, I didn’t think about photography much, until I started guided kayaking trips in northern Wisconsin. I got a couple of lenses and an Nikon N60 to learn more about photography. The highlight of my picture taking was the summer of 2001, which I spent in Alaska. With ample photo opportunities, I took pictures almost every day in Alaska. This of course helped develop my skills.

Several years ago, I decided to buy the first Nikon digital SLR, marketed as affordable – the D70.  At this time I’m shooting with the D80 body, and have five different lenses. Locally, my favorite subject to photograph is waterfalls.  I like to find new waterfalls to photograph. Mukluk doesn’t mind assisting.
