Great stuff!!! I just bought a home in Vermilion. I’m a past photojournalist and was shocked to come across such talent when I looked at your photos on Facebook. Really capturing Vermilion and other places beautifully. Hope to run into your someday! 😀
NKP 765 is my favorite
Scott- we love the photos!!! Vermilion Sailor Majorettes. Thank you for taking pictures of Monroe when my camera broke down that evening, we really appreciate it. Now how do I purchase some prints
I just sawy your photo from the Bottle Tree Ranch on ScenicUSA - wonderful shot! Reminds me of a semi-ghost town in Nevada called Tuscarora...and after perusing some of your amazing images I thought Tuscarora might be a place right up your alley!
Thanks for sharing and Happy Shooting! Paula
Thank you Scott for the patience and artistic eye that you have in capturing so many of these amazing shots. Many of the ones from Vermilion bring back such wonderful memories of my 16 years of growing up there. As many have asked before... Do you sell your work? I'd love to have some notecards with some of these shots or even 3 or 4 of the pics that I could print on canvas. Have you thought of using a site like zazzle.com to set up a few designs and let them handle the production and shipping? It might be a great option if you don't want to hassle with the logistic. I think it would be worth your while. Please let me know if you have any products available.
Enjoyed your Mojave Photos, which brings back many memories of driving through the desert on many trips in the last 53 years with my parents and friends.
I love all your photos but what really caught my eye was the photo of "New England Winter Scene" Do you sell your work? I would love a large photo of that for my home in Virginia (lived in Mass, for 30 years) Let me know?
Hey buddy! Surfing the Internet and saw your beautiful photographs. Hope you are well. I live in VA now. E-mail when you get a chance. Scott B.
I wanted to remind you that "Hotel-icus muther-que-icus gobbles the muther-goo-icus.
I really love your New Hampshire galleries. It's an inspiration and new ideas where to go when I visit this beautiful state. Thank you for naming the images by the town's name. That's great to know. You are truly talented and aweinspiring soul!
I just love your pictures. Your eye captures they beauty in the moment. The phtos of New Hampshire are truly my favorites. Those photos take me home....
Thak You for sharing the beauty.
I was truly moved by the beauty of your pictures. Thanks for sharing!
Misty eyed and very grateful for YOU. Thanks so much for your exquisite expression.
Amazingly beautiful, clear, professional-quality images. I wish i could to it too!
FANTASTIC! These pictures are breathtaking... I used to crew 65-0969 and 0968 in the mid 70s. Go Weather!

I have not only enjoyed viewing your pictures over and over but now I have enjoyed reading how much others truly love your pictures too. I noticed several have wanted to purchase or use your pictures and I think you are losing out big time but not sharing these with the world so they can hang them on the wall. Of course, my favorite is Michele's Rose (wonder why) but honestly, I would love to hang every single one of these in my home... I can see the wall now. Such talent... When is your exhibit going to be in Nashville?
What do you think of Olympus cameras? There is a new one I ordered and it seems good but not sure what you think?
ps. Is it hard to do this freelancing for some income?
I love photography and grew up in nh. Live in so cal..want to do it as a hobby. Have you sold any of these? or just for fun?
so this is how you spend your retirement while I can't get a break. This looks like more fun. Woody
I'm jealous of how good you are.
Can I just say that you're awesome?

I wanted to thank you for the time you spent building this page.+
Hi, Scott! Great job, as I've told you many times...My favorite is the 'What are YOU lookin at?' photo!
Fantastic Shots but was very sad because i could not add to my Picaso Photo Software to enjoy on my desktop or as a slideshow! oh well! But Anyway Great Work! Simple Brilliant.
Do you sell any of your photo's? I'm from Corpus Christi and love the sunset photo's...
I really enjoyed your Harrisville NH photo. My folks have a summer place on the lake and this would make a very nice gift. I was wondering if you have a website where I can order these shots?
I noted that you have great pictures taken with Digital SLR such as Canon D60, and Sony R1.
I am an user of a SONY F828. I am planning to purchase a Sony R1 or a Nikon D200, or D50?
Based on your experience with digital SLR and Sony unique design, what do you suggest that I buy?
Should I keep my Sony F828 because quality of images is similar to R1?
You have a fantastic eye - what talent. I hope you are making a living from your abilities. I learned about your site from the disboards.com Thanks for sharing.
Former New Hampshire resident now living in Florida. Loved the pictures. Took me back. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you so very much. One of them (I believe it's the Souhegan River in Merrimack) is my background at work. Thanks again
Deborah M Slangal

I've Been Looking And Looking For A Picture That Would Truly Represent San Antonio And I Found It In Your Gallery "San Antonio At Night" I Am Currently Working On A Project And Would Like To Have Your Permission For Me To Use Your Photograph Please Contact Me With Your Response
North Wales, United Kingdom, calling!
Hi Scott - don't ever remove these galleries from the net! I've had the privilege of having been able to reside and work in the USA on three occasions and enjoyed every minute of your great continent with some wonderful memories recorded on 35mm film as well as movies. Visiting your website brings back a lot of memories. Keep adding the pics and good shootin'.
All Best Wishes
Great galleries Scott. Hope you don't mind, but I've added you to my favorits list. I want to come back and look some more
Hello from Debbie in Texas!!
Once again I come to your site!! I have been here before and tell all my friends whol like to take photos!! Yours are some of the best I have ever seen!!!
Sure wish I could take them like you. I am a very beginner, but do you ever give out tips???? Any suggestions!!! My daughter just bought the Canon 20D.
Just got back from a trip to Utah and all the national parks in September. Absolutely LOVED it there, and I love your photos on your galleries!! I loved Arches Park.
Sure wish I knew what you knew on photography.!!!!!! Any starting places you suggest I will try!!!!
Once again, your galleries are the best!!!!!!! What would you tell a beginner. I still have the Canon G3, and need to upgrade I know. How did you learn all that you know??? books, people, and/or trial and error and practicing???? Oh, please give some hints!!!!
I wish you lived in Texas!!!
It was fun to come see your site again and see all the new photos!!!!!
Always enjoyed your galleries, Scott. Keep 'em coming.
I have read lots of digital photographs in different places. Through the help of technology, many can produce eye catching photo but only very limited of them can fully exploit the characteristics of digital camera and handle post software processing well. You are one of those masters who can produce photos reaching film like commercial grade. In terms of colour, composition, depth and sharpness, it is difficult for me notice vestige of post processing. I can see you control well in taking stage and software processing stage. Very impressed pictures! Very well done!
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! I love the shots and very natural looking photo's.
Wow's right. You are a true light master. The most amazing collection of excellent photos I've seen on the web, and I look at a lot. You make me want to work harder at my photography. Thanks for sharing these.
Beautiful galleries, if this is not an inspiration for a lot of people, for me it is! I add you to my favorites.
Greetings from Holland,
Wow. That's it. Just Wow.
hi there. love the pics. what camera did you use before? what is your experience with the digilux?
I stumbled upon your Favorites gallery and am very impressed. I read a lot of forum about the pro and cons of digital cameras. Now I know that that's useless. You pictures even with not so expensive equipment are so impressive. Congratulations.
Joseph from Munich, Germany
by chance (actually by typing Digilux 2 into "google") I got aquainted with your galleries. I was especially impressed by your excellent pictures taken with the Leica Digilux 2 on your road trip 04 from Nevada to New Hampshire. I had already an eye on this camera for quite a while and your gallery eased my decision to buy one a day later.
Dieter from Germany
Beautiful pictures! I have lived on Baboosic Lake in Amherst since 1978. You have really captured the essence of the area. I wondered if you had any actual pictures of the lake that I can post on my website for my vacation rental? Please contact me if you're interested. Thanks, Shanna
I am a new photographer and I absolutely love taking pictures. I have a Canon EOS Elan SLR which I never touch. I also have my own G3 which is never out of reach. There are few captures in my gallery that I was reletively happy with...Until now that is. Your images are simply beautiful. I wish I could pull the vibrant clarity out of my camera that you have with yours. I will be watching your gallery closely. Thanks for the inspiration.
Hey there, my name is Abel Longoria from Houston and I was stumbled across your gallery on pbase.com and noticed you were in Texas as well. I thought u may be interested in checking out a new forum Ive created specifically for Texas Photographers. Its
and we have only been online for about a month now but have about 150 members from all across Texas!
Anyways, stop in if you feel that it may be of interest to you wed love to have you.
hello scott .. u are a great photographer.. u should proud of urself...
can i ask sumthing? did u use PS for all these great pictures?
i'm new in photography and just bought G6 a month ago.. but how can i take picture like yours??... should i use PS???
I've looked at many photographs on pbase - yours are as good as they get. Your "Favorites" gallery made me shiver.
Thanks so much,
Your work is amazing. Thanks for sharing. Love your composition and exposure, especially the Las Vegas pictures. My wife and I love that place.
By the way, how do you manage to get sharp focus, foreground to background, on your Leica Digilux 2? Do you use manual, infinity focus on the Leica?
I'm looking into getting a Digilux 2 or Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC1. The cheaper price of the Lumix is pulling me in. Can I get your thoughts on these two cameras?
Thanks a bunch and keep up the great work!
Your photography is just gorgeous! I love all the unique angles you use to truly capture the moment. You also have a lot of variety as far as the kinds of pictures you take.
I've been looking at your beautiful, breathtaking and artistic photography. Do you share any of your secrets for the color you get in your photos, such as do you use a filter that helps with the saturated color, and are you able to print these pictures straight from the camera with them looking like this, or do you have to do post-processing? Being a perfectionist, and also artistic, I'm so frustrated with the post-processing that I have to do with my Sony F707 and have been looking at the latest Leica D2 with the hopes of getting beautiful color straight from the camera. Your pictures, though, have a distinctive artistic quality which speaks of your obvious gift in photography, regardless of the camera, but are you having to use an imaging program to put the 'icing' on what you've already taken? Sorry for the length, but I am so frustrated. Any help would be deeply appreciated. PS. Also, with all the cameras that you've used, which one was the most satisfying camera to you? Thanks so much...Ganny
Super photos, my favorite from NH.
I have posted this same message on one of your individual photos (not so familiar with the layout of pBase). Nevertheless, I have an event scheduled aboard the USS Massachusetts this Saturday (
) which will bring a few hundred people together to participate in a short local dedication ceremony and then we will simulcast the D.C. dedication ceremony.
I want to provide some images of the monument for people to view both before and after the ceremony and I found your beautiful work on the internet.
May I have your permission to display the WWII Memorial images that day? I will post appropriate credit. Also, any chance I can get a higher resolution set? The pBase images work fairly well but come out pixelated by the time I print them at an 8x10 size appropriate for older eyes.
Please let me know as soon as possible.
Hathaway Family Funeral Homes
Your pictures are wonderful!
I love these pictures of Arizona! We are a local company with an international customer base. I would love to put one or more of your photos on our website to show the beauty of Arizona to the world.
How do I go about purchasing and/or getting permission to do this?
Thanks and keep up the beautiful work! KW
Can not find proper words to express all my delight and admiration.
All your photos are not just "nice" and "beautiful" like the others say, they are real masterpieces! And there no many people in the world who can catch things and colours like you do. This is a professionalism of the highest standards.
Thank you so much for such breathtaking views.
I'm new to the digital photography and trying to choose a good camera for myself; that's why i had searched through the hundreds of web-sites and found your gallery.
Thank you again and God bless you!
How do you like the Digilux ?
U tak greet piturs tank U 4 sharrin dem !!!
Very nice gallery and photography. I would like to invite you to the site and join the photography contest.
I realy like your photos.i vote for this gallery :)
welcome to my image bank ,NIKON D100 Gallery
I'm most impressed with your color palate - so rich, yet understated, muted, and soft, just as Hawaii really is. I'm very impressed with the way you've captured a moment and made it so timeless. Thank you for sharing.
Great photos--How do you rate your G3 with your other cameras? I am looking into buying one. Email me back if you can.
Scott,I thought looking at your favorites gallery might render all your best images.Not true. Every gallery is just top notch. Great clear,sharp photos one can really sink their
teeth into. The best I've seen ! Back to the drawing board for me....cheers, robin.
Hello, I enjoyed your photos.Thx for sharing. :)
Hi Scott, I love your galleries especially your excellent composition and use of color. Truly great shots!!!
Hi Scott, I just love your pictures of Harrisville, NH. I spent all my summer weekends at my grandfathers cottage on Harrisville, Lake. We were able to see the white church from my grandfathers cottage and hear the chimes at night. I have many fond memories( I"m 56 now) . Do you have photos of the church and other buildings or the cemetary. My relatives on my grandfathers side of the family worked at the mills and some relative ran the post office. Your photography is spectacular and I just love all the New Hamshire scenes!! My husbands father grew up in Winchester, NH . Thankyou for bringing me back in time!!Pat Eddy, of Reading, Mass .
I've really enjoyed your galleries, an excellent body of work!
Hello Scott, I keep coming back to your galleries time after time.....must be a few years now. You seem to shoot exactly what I like, but there the similarities end unfortunately. Your work is enjoyed by millions I'm sure of that and will live on the net for ever I hope, to be enjoyed by the next few million. You are the Ansell Adams of the Digital Age. Have a fantastic New Year Scott.
Dad and I are looking at your pics right now and they look great. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!
I don't know you, but I saw your gallery through a friends AIM profile and I must say that your pictures are REALLY really nice. What do you use to take them and what do you use to edit?
you never cease to amaze me. you are an incredibly talented photographer. please post more when you can.
Ohmygod! I came and had a look round here after seeing a post on the Canon Digital Photography forum. I'm glad I did but wish I hadn't. Your work is inspirational and it sadly, makes everything I do look like a bunch of family snaps.... Not all the stuff rings my bells but every gallery is laden with such beautifully composed shots. Awesome!
Nice photos of postcards where did you buy them?
Great pictures in really nice albums.
Did you do some post-processing of your pictures?
Mine aren't that sharp. Just beginning to use PS.
Scott, just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that whenever I need some inspiration, yours is one of the first galleries I visit. Your pictures are so beautiful, they certainly give me something to work towards in my amateur photography career. Great images, great eye, I'm certainly appreciative that you share. Thanks again.
Your pics are breathtaking. I have looked at a few galleries on the internet, but I have never been inspired by one like I am with yours. Some pics are magical. Please keep posting.
Very good photos! I recently bought a G5 and I hope that it can help me to take better pictures! Please come visit my website too!
Ayeye photographic expression
Beautiful pictures, thaks for sharing.
On the Canon G3 forum you had said you used C1 a lot at f4 and manual focus at infinity. Are most of your distant landscape photos herein taken in that fashion (setting)? Also, do you do much touch up work on the photos?
I would appreciate a reply. Great pictures.
Just got my G3 in the mail today. Any tips would be great. Your photos are very pretty.
Awewsome Scott! You're in my bookmarks now. And geez you have alot of camera's! At least you are evidence that one doesn't need the latest 5 figure SLR to take amazing shots.
Hi Scott: Saw your message at dpreview ("can't put up but can't shut up either") and I clicked onto your link. WOW!
I don't have any "L" glass but I've been having a lot of fun shooting without it. I am planning to get the 16-35 L only because I heard it's better than the Sigma and more for the range than the "L" (I like using the superwides), so I won't think of myself as a "better" photographer or higher up on the "pecking order". I love photography for its own sake no matter which camera I have in hand at the moment. Tom
Thanks Scott for some great photos. Helps motivate me to get my stuff organized and posted.
Your photos are what I aspire to! And it looks like your travels have mirrored ours. I'm curious as to why no more shots in Volcanoes of the flowing lava? Anyway, thanks for sharing and I will use your pictures for inspiration.
Wonderful photos/composition. Am I correct that these are seen through the lens of a Sony 717?
First, I am very impressed by your collection of photographs of a number of locations in New Hampshire. My parents lived in Brookline, NH for many years before they passed away some years ago. Could you tell me from where you took the pictures in Brookline? One of the scenes in Brookline looks extremely familiar. It reminds me of a view from along an old railroad right-of-way overlooking a marsh. My father and I used to try and get an occasional glimpse of nesting blue herons. My parents lived on the west side of Route 13 on the land behind an antique shop just north of Route 130. The house has since burned down and the site has probably been rebuilt.
I have been looking at the Sony 717 and trying to compare everything of similar price to it. The Sony seems to come out on top most frequently.
I hope you don't consider this note a nuisance.
Great photographs! I can only aspire to take pictures are pretty as yours.
Very nice pictures indeed.
If you add some tech info (speed/aperture...) this would be heaven ;)
Thanks for my eyes!
Scott i am new to this site , but your work is as good as tne Ericc porter exhibit now showing at the amon carter museum of western art here in fort worth . and he was no piker jim haas
Amazing pictures. I thought I could take a good snap until I saw yours. If you are not professional then you should be. Brilliant presentaion and truly wonderful images one of the best collections I have seen.
Hi Scott, Great pictures, have just purchesed my G3 yesterday, how do you get such great clouds!
Scott, you make very, very nice pictures.
Thanks for posting your glorious images for us to see. You're definitely on my list of favorites.
You are an incredibly talented photographer, Scott. Thank you for posting these marvelous images. They are extraordinary!
Really great work. This will stay in time.
Keep doing such a great work.
Hello Scott. I have to admit your years of experience show through. You have some excellent shots which were a joy to see.
Very nice shots. I live in Honolulu and have a G2 as well. If you don't mind me asking, what settings did you use to capture your "Waikiki at night" and "Lahaina Nightlife" shots?
WOW.. beautiful photos .. I'm planning on buying a G2 as my first digital camera. Could you email me and give me some tips on what else to buy and where I can research on further usage of the camera and get the most out of it? I see you're a very skillful photographer.. I wish one day I will take pictures like those.
If you could email me with some tips.. much would be appreciated as I am a big fan of photography and would love to start asap :)
thanks for all the great photos.. enjoyed it tremendously!!
Great photos!! Remnded us of our trip a time ago. Beautiful place isn't it? You make it look as good as it is!
Because i am looking at the sony 707, i have spent more than a few moments on the various owners thoughts an viewpoints on the camera...
than i came across the web site with your shots... like the colors for sure, an being that my family is from the areas your shooting in...(exeter, an newton are my thoughts) I have been shooting an living in los angeles for many years, an still enjoy the fall change!!!!
keep up the great work...
Good photos almost as good as Ansel Adams!
