Based in the Washington DC area, Randall Scott considers it a privilege to photograph the amazing individuals he encounters. People have such a endless treasure trove of stories and experiences, what better way to understand the world and humanity by listening and then retelling their adventures through a photograph.
Randall Scott bought his first camera at the age of 14. That trusted Pentax K1000 was lugged everywhere throughout his high school years and then into college where he studied journalism, communications and studio art. Having assisted his way through high fashion, editorial celebrity portraits, corporate portraiture and even yacht interiors (you have not lit a 5x5 foot room till you have filled it with sixty-eight 25 watt incandescent lightbulbs), Scott changed gears and pulled a stint as an art director/picture editor in Kyiv, Ukraine for a news service. Then again in Seattle for a sports magazine...while still focusing on editorial portraits.
Scott has been lucky enough to have traveled the world photographing editorial portraits and culture for magazines and corporate clients specifically in the technology and business sectors. He feels fortunate and grateful for every assignment he has ever been given and every conversation he has had along the way.
When he is not on assignment, Scott spends his time caving to the wishes of his 18 year-old daughter and teaching his talkative cat to sit and fetch.
