Scott Stimere is a former commercial studio photographer and digital artist, who over the past 2 years has transitioned from portrait and product photography into nature and travel. In an attempt to unshackle himself from his computer and flee the office environment, he has taken his eye for dynamic imagery to the outdoors. Drawn to moody environmental scenes and aerial photography, Scott’s unique style has begun to emerge recently and can be seen in these 6 pieces from his trip to Iceland. Dramatic lighting, ethereal environments and unique vantage points, combined with a dynamic editing style, give the viewer a glimpse of what this vast and breathtaking landscape looked like through the eyes of this artist.
