Alaska Magazine selected several of Scott’s photos to illustrate a feature article on Richard Nelson. The article by Melissa DeVaughn, titled ‘Genuine Encounters’, profiles Nelson and his work on ‘Encounters’ a radio program that he creates (read the article online here). Scott has had the pleasure of being on several adventures around Alaska with Nelson over the years and also assisted Cinematographer Daniel Zatz in producing three video pieces with Nelson on camera. Please take a minute and visit the Encounters website and listen to one of the programs there if you have any interest in the wildlife and culture of Alaska you won’t be disappointed.
