Born in the US, Scott grew up in Switzerland, backpacked through the American West, and trekked Nepal's Himalayas before committing to a college life spent mostly in a darkroom in upstate New York. After several years as an assistant to a wide variety of NYC photographers, he struck out on his own, shooting athletes and extreme sports. Scott's work eventually shifted toward the athletes themselves and portraiture. This led to photographing many of the best creative minds in Hollywood, the music industry and the worlds of business and government.
