I’ve organized my site around the topics below. You can read more about each category from the links below and see the most recent posts there as well. My main about me page or about my portfolio page are different topics. Click below to read more about my thoughts…


Welcome to my little slice of the Internet. I’m truly honored you stopped by. I am a freelance Photographer based out of Auburn, Alabama. I work professionally as a Content Manager, creating everything from writing online content, photography, videography, to managing social media accounts. If you are interested in my freelance work as a photographer or writer, please contact me to start the conversation. If you are new to my site, start here.

My Website

On this site I mainly focus on photography, but I do write around topics on faith, life, photography, technology, sailing, sports, gardening, or whatever is happening in life at that time. My blog is here, and my photography portfolios are here which are being currently updated throughout 2023.

About Me

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 gone there, and it’s impacted my life and thinking tremendously.

My passions in life that surrounds me daily, that push me forward is, my love for the Lord , my family, and then my personal connection with photography and all the nuances contained in that art form.

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

~Henri Cartier-Bresson

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. If you have a blog or website I would love to take a look at it, please leave a comment below with your website address so we can all check it out!

    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

      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.
