Meet Scott Renyer

Today we’d like to introduce you to Scott Renyer.

Hi Scott, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was about eleven or twelve when I borrowed my mom’s old Kodak Brownie camera way back in the early seventies. I shot a couple of rolls of film. That’s when the photography bug bit me and started my interest in photography.

Then in high school, I read an article on Ansel Adams.

That article had a major impact on me so I took two years of photography classes in high school that is the only formal training I’ve taken.

As to how I’ve gotten to this point, well I’m a full-time student in the university of life; no degrees just awesome experiences some good and some not so good.

I carry my camera with me at all times because you never know when you might get that million dollar shot.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road; there were a lot of starts and stops along the way most of them were financial not having the money for film or processing and being young and inexperienced.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My photography is a work in progress. I’m always experimenting with my camera trying different things. I do take a lot of landscape and wildlife shots as to a specific niche. I don’t like to be categorized like that because I’m not a certain category of photographer. I’m probably known for my lightning and waterfall shots oops I guess that kinda makes them landscape photos.

What I’m most proud of is the support and encouragement from my mom and wife plus other family members.

What sets me apart from others that’s kind of a loaded question. I’m not better photographer than any other photographer I shoot what I see if people like it that’s great if they don’t like it, that’s okay also I enjoy taking photos and sharing them with anyone that wants to look at them

So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
What matters most to me is God and family. I thank God for giving me the gift of being able to see the world through the eyes of a child.

Family is very important to me because of the support they provide in good times and bad times if I didn’t have a family, I would be like a lost ship at sea.
