While doing commercials, and modeling in Chicago as a teen, Scott fell in love with the camera. In 2002, his father gave him a professional camera that he purchased at a local pawnshop. Scott began shooting photographs of everyone he knew. After graduating from the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts he attended Louisiana State University to pursue a career in Dentistry. Eventually he was photographing many of the people on campus. In 2004, while still attending LSU, Scott finally decided to get serious about his photography, and launched his own company under the name of Studio 360 Imaging. Baton Rouge could only contain him for so long. He made his move to Los Angeles in 2007 to finish his studies in Dentistry and continued expanding his work in photography. While surviving the many hardships in a city like Los Angeles may seem overwhelming to most, this young man took it all in stride. He went from barely getting one paid photo shoot a month to owning and operating the biggest minority owned Photography Company in Los Angeles. With over 40 people such as make-up artists, hair stylists, clothing designers/stylists, creative directors, runway coaches, graphic designers, web designers, etc. working under the STUDIO 360 IMAGING name, it is obvious that his company is ready for the future.
