Ken Scott: Photographer, Coach, Speaker, Adventurer

Ken Scott is a photographer, adventurer, speaker, and coach from Sussex, England.

He is still best known for his mountain landscape and light photography, which spans nearly forty years of walking in Britain, and overseas in Corsica, the Pyrenees, Alps amd North America. His most recent mountain adventures include a crossing of the Pyrenees High Route (HRP) in 2011. And in 2017 Ken will be embarking on a solo walk around the coast of Britain with camera – Coast17.

In recent times Ken’s photographic repertoire has expanded to include a diversity of styles from intimate nature to abstract art, which have emerged from the discipline of daily practice. In March 2016 Ken passed 3000 consecutive days (over eight years) of his “365 Project”, now “Project Infinity”, making a picture every day.

Ken is a motivational photography coach and workshop leader, running photography workshops and holidays in Spain and France – “The Joy of Seeing” – an approach to mindful photographic practice and being ‘in the moment’ with seeing and photographing the world around us.

He also is an ARPS (Associate of the Royal Photographic Society), an acclaimed speaker, delivering professional photographic talks and lectures to camera clubs and outdoor organisations throughout the UK, and a respected judge and appraiser on the camera club circuit, influential in the training and development of judging practice.

Touching the Light has been Ken’s photographic brand since 1998 and the site showcases not only Ken’s photography but also is a platform for the philosophy and psychology of photography and for consideration of mindfulness in photography.
