Scott is a lifelong photographer with a master’s degree in journalism (UC Berkeley). His work on a homeless children living in Bucharest earned him the Dorothea Lange Fellowship and the Susan Meiselas Fellowship from UC Berkeley, and his photo essay on Cairo street café culture was featured on PBS’s Frontline World website. His first book, Edges of Bounty (2009, Heyday Press), is a fine art documentary photo essay on small scale, independent food production in the Central Valley of California. His first feature film was Drawing the Tiger, where he severed as Producer, Director, and Director of Photography. The film is a documentary project about a family in Nepal living on less than a dollar a day that wins the globalization jackpot: a charity scholarship for their daughter to go to school in the capital city. She promises to return to free her family from poverty, but ultimately does not. Drawing the Tiger is an intimate portrait of the price one family pays for their golden opportunity.
