Photographer + Director
Scott Drickey is a professional photographer + director. He attended Brooks Institute and went on to shoot for fashion and beauty editorial and advertising assignments. Scott’s specialties are in portraits, still life and producing still and motion content.
There was a time when I was known for my tenacious work style and my lighting expertise. As a photographer’s assistant and in my early days as a photographer, I was fast, obsessively organized, and almost psychic in my ability to anticipate the needs of others on a shoot. I was the assistant world-famous photographers requested for their shoots. I traveled the world, working in studios in Paris and the deserts of the American West. My work appeared in Vogue to Vibe Magazines.
Today to my surprise, my work has become infinitely more interesting when I apply my perspective to each of my subjects. I strive in letting their personalities motivate the light to reveal truths and undeniable beauty.
Some things haven’t changed since the early days of my career. I am still dedicated to disarming my clients with experience and capability. As a photographer + director, my job is to bring my expertise to build on an idea or offer new ones from pre-production to post. My work begins long before a shoot, and my clients consistently appreciate the care I take generating and enhancing ideas for a campaign’s still and motion content.
There is no end to the craft of photography’s ability to seduce me. If I’m fortunate enough to be around another for another 20 years, I can assure you, I will still be behind the lens shooting still and moving pictures.
Establish an uncanny intimacy with a stranger. Animate an inanimate object.
Always consider the story then plan the work and work the plan.
