After 22 years working in the media industry, Scott made the decision to follow a more personal, meaningful path by officially launching Scott Farrell Photography in March of 2012. His scope of work covers everything from landscapes, nature, rural and urban scenes to architectural and abstract photography.
A marketing major from Fairleigh Dickinson University, his first cognizant introduction to the power of photography came from a high school Humanities class writing assignment about Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans and the FSA. The project had a profound influence that lead to his development as a photographer.
“Each time I look through the viewfinder to capture an image I try to imagine how photographers Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, or Ansel Adams might have seen the frame. I also contemplate how painters Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer and J.M.W. Turner might have interpreted a particular scene with regard to texture, tone, composition and lighting. These influences are omnipresent as inspiration and fountainheads of my appreciation for the art of photography.”
