A tundra hike; a ship exploring a remote fiord; a zodiac darting among icebergs: these are locations from which Scott has created some of his most dynamic and memorable photographs. Capturing fleeting moments, making the most of available light, and meticulous after-care are all part of Scott’s personal artistic process.
