Hello, my name is Scott Thompson. I am a photographer and family man who has been shooting seriously since 1996. In 2002, my family and I moved to Truckee. This is when I was inspired by the constant exposure to the Tahoe areas natural beauty to start my fine art photography business. I like to think that I have a unique way of looking at life and the beauty it has to offer and photography is my favorite way to express this. I have been educated in painting and drawing as well as photography, and I feel this has added greatly to my photography style. Hopefully you will enjoy the images I have captured as much as I do.
I shoot mostly with my Canon EOS3 and my Mamiya 645J although some of my shots are taken with a variety of other cameras. I also shoot with a variety of films including 35mm and 120mm slide, negative, black and white, and infrared. Sometimes I even use alternative developing techniques to get intentionally manipulated colors. Most of my slides and negatives are scanned with my Canon Canoscan FS 4000 US and my prints are done with my Epson Stylus Photo 2200 or my Epson Stylus Pro 9600. Although I use a computer to scan and print my images, I try to only use it as a tool to get my final print to look as close as possible to the original transparency. What you see is actually on the slide or negative.
