Scott Barrow at the northern most tip of Block Island.

A Brief Bio

“Scott has been embracing beautiful light and finding photographs for his clients and his personal projects for four decades and he is just getting started. He describes himself, as being “lucky on location”, but what that really means is that he is always open to the gifts of serendipity. His versatility is astounding and visitors to his galleries are often amazed to hear that what they are seeing is the work of just one photographer”.
I can attest to the idea that a love of photography is indeed genetic. Playful images taken by both sides of my family go back to the 1860s. My own love of  photography began as a boy when I would spend evenings with my father (an avid shooter) in his basement darkroom. The magic of a print appearing in an amber lit tray still fascinates me.  During a cross country trip while in college I spent my last $ 150 on a Canon SLR and 5 rolls of Kodachrome and I have never stopped shooting. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a fine art degree I had the good fortune to be taken under the wing of a freelance photographer who showed me that making a living with a camera could be rewarding, creatively fulfilling and fun.
During my career, hundreds of assignments for advertising, travel, editorial and corporate clients have allowed me to explore the world. Despite my reputation as an inspired location shooter I have often been asked, “So, where is your studio?” My response is that my “studio” is wherever I happen to be at the moment.
In all of my photography I strive for connection to the subject that I am exploring. I take beautiful photographs for a living and I enjoy it. The bigger challenge for me as an artist is to go beyond beauty and find my connection to the scene, to become part of it in the moment that I release the shutter. It is only then that I can truly share what I saw and felt with you the viewer.
