“My Mother Patricia gave me my first camera when I was 9 or 10 years old. I got my first roll of film to go in it 5 years later”.
Kieran E. Scott started his photographic career in London in the late 1980’s under the tutelage of acclaimed food and travel photographer Antony Blake.
After a start supplying Blake with photographs for his library, his work began appearing throughout the UK and Europe.
In 1992 Scott started working with magazines in New Zealand and Australia, including the ground breaking Australian magazine, Vogue Entertaining and Travel and New Zealand’s leading food and wine title Cuisine Magazine.
His work was soon picked up by premium publishers in the US and Europe and he started shooting pioneering features of his own design – documentary style, combining portraits, still-life and landscapes. Creating images full of energy and movement.
Over the next 20 years he maintained a regular working relationship with US Travel and Leisure, Food and Wine, Gourmet Traveller, Vogue E&T, Departures, Conde Nast Traveller and Travel and Life. He became a contributing Photographer for Getty Images Seattle office and has been commissioned to photograph more than 40 books and hundreds of advertising and design commissions.
