Ken Scott: Photographer, Coach, Speaker, Adventurer

Hi. I’m Ken Scott, photographer, adventurer, speaker, and coach from Sussex, England.

My photography is probably still best known for my work with mountain landscape and light, which spans nearly forty years of walking and mountaineering in Britain, and overseas in Corsica, the Pyrenees, Alps and North America. My most recent mountain adventures include a crossing of the Pyrenees High Route (HRP) in 2011 and in 2017 a solo walk around the coast of Britain with camera – Coast17.

In recent times my 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. The end of 2018 completed eleven years – 4018 consecutive days – of a “365 Project”, now “Project Infinity”, making a picture every day.

Ken Scott – Photography Professional

Professionally, my work is as a 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.

I regularly give photographic talks and presentations to camera clubs and outdoor organisations throughout the UK, and for many years I have also been a respected judge and appraiser on the camera club circuit, influential in the training and development of judging practice.

Touching the Light has been my photographic brand since 1998. The website showcases not only my photography but also, I hope, will become a platform for the philosophy and psychology of photography and for mindfulness in photography.
