Scott’s career in photography began in 2000 out of necessity. Working as an art director, he was tasked with producing product photography for a client. He soon learned how to deliver quality images and gravitated towards landscape photography as a personal artistic outlet. His style favors landscape and cityscape compositions that incorporate bold shapes and deep, rich colors.
Clients include Gale Banks Engineering, Irwindale Speedway, Juanita’s Foods and Sunset Marquis Hotel.
Drawing on his graphic design skills, Scott has taught several seminars on Photoshop and Indesign as well as written how-to tech articles on various design programs.
Recent travels include the countries of France, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. In November, his work was featured at a gallery exhibit hosted by Influence Artists. Scott is also a founding member of Donut Street Meet, a photography club that brings together passionate artist for photo meet-ups all around Los Angeles.

The session with Scott was awesome! I really enjoyed the time and got some great photos! So far I have only had time to briefly look at them but hope to spend some time and do some editing. If we are back in the LA area I would certainly look to organize our itinerary to spend time with Scott!
I like the idea of a photo book for our granddaughter!
Thank you for facilitating the the experience!
Scott is a great instructor. He was very clear and explained everything really well. I am so glad I took his class. So much so I stayed for the next class, on composition. Had a great time and learned so much. I am looking forward to taking more classes at the Digital Photography Academy.

Wonderful instructor and a great learning experience. I highly recommend the course.

Such a fun course full of ideas and scenarios to try out. I learned so much from Scott about composition and technicals, like how to best use shutter priority or aperture priority, exposure compensation, etc. Really had such an amazing set of moments. If I could do a first-time class all over again, it would be this one.

Thanks for the opportunity to learn a little bit more about photography yesterday.
It was very educational…Well, I took a few pictures with my camera and my phone.
Had so much fun! Will book again soon!! Scott was great. Learned so much!

Had an awesome time! Too bad I had to leave early the sky really developed into a pretty out real red, moody, cloudy, beauty! I still managed to take a few bangers!
Super fun time on Saturday. Really appreciate the location and scouting info. Scott was very warm and friendly and provided us lots of tips and ideas. He encouraged me to take some shots I wouldn’t have taken because I didn’t think they’d be that great. Turns out, the shots developed in to a pleasant surprise. Be enclosed a few shots. Hope you enjoy!
It was the best class! I had the best time and picked up numerous photography tips and tricks! I’m still in Cloud 9 three days after taking Scott’s class. I’ve taken a couple of DPA classes before and I’ve enjoyed all of them, but I got most out of Scott’s class. Scott was so attentive and truly has the passion to teach. I did not hesitate asking questions. I would love to take more classes with him—and yes, I will even get up at the crack of dawn to take his classes. I loved the unexpected hike to the spot to get the perfect shot! I can’t wait to go back.
Thank you again Scott. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot of new things. This was my first time in Chinatown. So the photography introduction was very nice.
He took us to hidden gem in the neighborhood of LA where we can see buildings in DTLA and Dodgers stadium. I find it to be very insightful especially for my first photography class. Definitely considering his other workshops in the future
Here is what I came up with , the 1st one is HDR merge (5pics) then used camera raw to make adjs. The 2nd one made adjs through LR. The other thing that I learned was how dirty my lenses are and need to get them clean.
I will be looking to see if I can make the L.A Skyline.
Thanks for the follow up email – I enjoyed the session and picked up some items to help with my photography. I will definitely check out the other upcoming sessions.
Here is my contribution:
Just wanted to tell you what a fun class that was yesterday, Scott is a great instructor! I’m enthusiastic again about honing my skills further and look forward to taking more classes.
I’d take any of his classes again, he’s so energetic!
Awesome, thank you so much! This is a huge help.
Might want to do one more session before I go. I’ll be in touch. I don’t leave for another month. Thanks so much for all your help and guidance. Love some of my photos. I can’t believe the luck we had with the last minute sunset and the bike riders. Super fun. I learned a lot.
Love your idea about a photoshop help session. I bet you can teach me so much with that too. Maybe we can shoot one ore time before my trip and do photoshop after. Just a thought.
Thanks again for everything. Have a great day .
Thank you again Scott for an awesome class! We definitely learned a lot and I will definitely be getting a lighter weight tripod!
