My name is Scott Clark, and I am a life long Central Coast resident. Growing up without the internet, computers and cell phones, my passion for the outdoors began early in life. As a child of the sixties I also grew up around interesting color choices, ground breaking music and ideas, all part of the fabric of who I am. Bold compositions, vibrant colors and occasionally breaking the "photographic rules" I think best characterizes my style. As you view my photos, my desire is that you see these qualities reflected in my work - and you like it.
Now lets briefly talk tech. You should know that by nature, I am not a tech person. When it comes to Photography, tech is pretty important though, so like many things, more is not necessarily better. Everyone by now is familiar with the product and the term "photoshop". Hence the saying, "wow, looks photoshopped".
While I use a processing program, my philosophy is to capture the best possible image in camera, and then utilize a basic work flow to bring the photo to life. What you see are single images shot in RAW file, minimally cropped to show my viewer what I saw through the lens and to maintain as much integrity of the raw image data as possible. This I believe, helps the image to hold up really well when enlarging them. I do not add sky, sun, crazy colors, fake reflections etc. to my photos.
That been said, I do appreciate the work of many talented photographers (and processors) out there, but I am currently at a place to where I want my work to be as organic as possible. In many of these shots, that meant returning to a scene over and over again to capture just the right moment that made the shot special. Just that simple.
Thank you again for visiting my site, come back and visit again soon, I am always adding new images. Hopefully you have connected with and found inspiration by what I have captured and showcased here.
Appreciate each day as a gift, and live it in full color,
