Colorado based photographer Scott Majors prefers to think of himself as a Professional Observer and Visual Nutritionist who is lucky enough to be pursuing his passion with photography. He has been involved with the industry for over 20 years working positions ranging from Lab Tech to Set Photographer before becoming full time at shooting a variety of content for an eclectic group of clientele. Scott’s work can be seen in many different places including walls, daily newspapers, quarterly magazines, independent film, along with a host of corporate websites and advertising campaigns. His versatile shooting style allows him to cover an eclectic mix of photography ranging from fine-art to editorial.
Scott’s love affair with photography was set into motion one summer in college when he took a course in Photojournalism for Black and White Film in the late 1990’s. From there he worked as a Photo Darkroom Assistant and Photo Editor of the college newspaper before interning as a photojournalist at a Daily Class IV newspaper in Colorado. He has won multiple awards for his work as a photojournalist including recognition from The Rocky Mountain Collegiate Press Association and The Colorado Press Association.
Turned out that chasing forest fires, house fires and car wrecks for the newspaper business was not his calling, so he decided to see what the view from other corporate ladders looked like. Scott climbed up a few, but didn’t much care for what he saw. He started thinking about how much fun he had in the darkroom, and after 10 years of not touching his camera, Scott and his father decided to install a darkroom in his home. Thus The Knob Hill Project was born and Scott was then able to approach the craft with a whole new purpose. And this time it was just for enjoyment.
This is where he started to see the world of photography outside of the photojournalism he had left behind. Exploitation was no longer the gig, and creativity was encouraged. Scott became motivated to figure out a way he could return to the industry on his own terms and pursue his passion while making a living. He finally converted to digital in 2013 which led to him putting even more focus into making photography a full time career. That is when he formed Scott Majors Photography as mostly a passion project and motivator for himself to return to photography.
Since 2013, Scott has won awards for his work with b&w film photography, shown in multiple galleries and continues to sell his work to corporations and many private collectors. Scott continues to shoot a variety of new photography content for his clients, and collaborates with his talented buddies as often as possible. Much of his current work is being used for publication in print and digital marketing campaigns, and he is also a current contributor at Springs Magazine & Social Butterfly Media Marketing Group. All of these experiences and many others along the way have led to the birth of the newest chapter in his love affair with photography. Scott has started his own photo company, Elemental Photo , to provide an even broader range of visual nutrition that will showcase a variety of clientele to a wide audience.
