About

My Work

Welcome to my little slice of the Internet. I’m truly honored you stopped by. On the work side of things, I’m a freelance Content Creator (see resume page). I create a wide range of content from photography to writing to videos and site management. On my personal side, just keep reading.

The tldr; About Version

If you want the tldr; version of this site, my focus is “documenting life.” That’s it. It’s that simple. I talk about photography, writing, technology, thinking off-grid, matters of faith, sailing, sports, or whatever is happening in life at that time. Sometimes just random uncategorized things as well.

My blog is here, my photography portfolios are here, I would love for you to subscribe to the site to receive email updates, and I have a map of everything else is here.

If you don’t know where to start, start with the map.

My About Info

I have lived all over the country, with most of my roots in Alabama, and I call the Auburn/Opelika area home. Over the years I’ve loved my time living in California, Texas, Florida, New York, and various other places, but Auburn will always be home to me. I’ve had the privilege of traveling all over the world from Australia to Uganda and everywhere in between. This has given me a unique perspective on different cultures and ways of life I could never understand without having been there, and it’s impacted my life and thinking tremendously.

My personal mission with my professional work is “to make what you are passionate about successful.” As a freelance Content Creator, I work with just about any online content as a writer, photographer, videographer, web designer, or anything else I can do at a professional level to help someone succeed. If you are interested in my services, my resume is available, or my LinkedIn profile is up to date as well.

My passions in life, the thing that surrounds me daily and pushes me forward is, my love for the Lord, my family, and then my personal interests like photography, writing, baseball, technology, and creating new content.

To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.

~Henri Cartier-Bresson

To make the information on my site a little more consumable, I have broken up my “about” pages to several different topics on the pages in my site map. I created a search, site map and archive page that is a great starting point for all the information on my site. If you don’t know where to start, start on the Site Map.

Personal Statement

In this post-911-post-covid world things can feel quite overwhelming at times. I recognize most people are doing the best they can, and we don’t all have to agree on everything all the time, and I’m ok with that. I respect everyone equally to the very best of my abilities no matter who they are or what they say. I hope you will afford me the same respect as I do you.

I look forward to connecting with you.

  1. Scott,

    I am also a seminary student at Liberty University Online and in the midst of a ministry plant in Bedford, IN. The reason I am contacting you is that I have found some of your DSMN 500 WA essays to be a good guide in helping me get an outline and direction for my papers. I am working on my “Discipleship Ministry Project” and I could use any advice or direction that you may have. I know what my ministry project will be, however, I am a visual learner “what should my finished project look like” FYI “you do awesome blog work” I have a blog but I am not a blogger. I keep ministry updates on it and that is about it, however, when time allows I would love to be more involved

    We have a professionally published video on the home page that tells all about our ministry, we have secured the building and location just this week. Praise God.

    Thank You and I look forward to your reply

    1. David, thanks so much for your comments… I haven’t taken the ministry project class so not sure how well i could help you there with that, but, i am still working on adding my Discipleship essays to my site, so maybe that will help.

      i checked out your blog and your ministry site, great work, looks like you have your hands full 🙂

    Hello Scott,

    I would like to inquire about an image of yours, known to me only by the image file title of “great-horned-owl1.jpg”. The image in question was posted to your blog on May 02, 2008. The reason for my inquiry is as follows:

    As an artist, I have been selected to donate a selected work for a silent-auction fund-raising event. All proceeds from said auction are to be allocated to the construction of a skateboard and bicycle park in our community. As such, the medium that we, the artists, have been provided with, is that of a skateboard deck. After weeks of conjuring up various ideas for this platform, I have now narrowed my selections down to two options. One of these options, is that of an owl. After searching Google Images for various reference images, I became quite intrigued by the aforementioned photograph, and would possibly like to pursue a painted rendition for my donation.

    If you could please contact me with regards to this image, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

  6. I stumbled upon your site via the “Life, Leadership & Faith” blog. I really enjoy it. I was completely surprised when I started seeing all these Auburn pictures being that I graduated from there in 1991. I was already liking your posts but that sold me. 🙂

    I also have a blog called “The Third Thoughts” which is at thethirdthoughts.com. I’m new to this whole blog thing and would love to get your opinion on mine. If you’re busy, no worries. I enjoy your blog, keep it up!

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for liking my post about Rob Bell over at my blog. I hope you’ll keep reading the series. I like the look of your blog (clean and colorful- via your photos). Like you, I’m also a seminary student (part-time). I have strong interests in music and writing and want to do more with this. I also like to take advantage of all the cool things techies like yourself come up.

    Best wishes to you on all your endeavors, and blessings in Christ,

    Alex

I am looking for some Auburn photos (converted to black and white) that I could turn into posters for my son’s room. I am wondering if I could purchase a few of your photos to do this. Please email me below. Really, really impressive work you have!!

  15. Appreciated your post on the importance of Leviticus. Some great points.

    A little housekeeping though- check your usage of peaked on your “about me” page. Guessing you meant piqued. And I won’t be offended if you remove this comment upon reading- in fact, please do!

  16. Hi Mr. Fillmer, I am a high school student and I have a speech that involves photos of snowflakes. I really loved your photo of the snowflakes on the window called Snowflake Photo on a Frosted Window and I was wondering if I could use it. It will be properly cited in MLA format. I hope you consider this. Thanks!
