A Bit About Me
Growing up in Southern California, Scott has always been surrounded by art and beautiful scenery. However, it wasn’t until his junior year at San Diego State University that he was afforded the opportunity to study abroad in the Netherlands, which is where he developed a serious passion for art, and photography in particular. For six months he studied and traveled the European continent on weekends photographing everything in sight, which culminated in a journey to Egypt at the end of his stay. Scott soon returned home to finish his college education with his newfound interest in photography. After graduating in May 2005 with a degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Marketing he was back on the road for another journey with his camera to China. Spending close to three months there, he took thousands of photos while experiencing the very unique culture. It was during his time in China that Scott began to concentrate on sharpening his photographic eye and learning the fundamental principles of photography. At the end of his trip, Scott was fortunate enough to travel to Tibet, which proved to be more inspiring than he could have imagined. The beauty and serenity of the Tibetan culture was by far the most amazing thing he had ever experienced.
After returning home to work for a year, it wasn’t long before he was back on the road for another adventure with his camera in hand. He set off for three months throughout South East Asia and Oceania in which his journeys spread from wandering amongst the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia to walking along a deserted beach in the Cook Islands. After graduation, Scott formed his own company SporlederArt where he has been self employed as a Photographer and Graphic Artist ever since. Scott has won awards in prestigious Photography competitions such as Art Wolfes EPI in Seattle and the Coastal Arts League competition in Northern California. He has had photographs featured in several magazines including Orange Coast magazine. Scotts photography can be seen in two of the Laguna Beach Art festivals.
Today Scott resides in Laguna Beach, where you can find him pursuing a career in photography and whenever possible spending time in the ocean.
