Scott Greenwell is an accomplished landscape photographer based in Kentucky. Born in Louisville, his interest in photography began early in childhood thanks to his uncle, Gene Burch, a celebrated and award-winning landscape photographer based in Frankfort, KY who sparked Scott’s interest in capturing majestic scenes of his home state.

After completing his Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Kentucky, Scott transitioned from film to digital photography to further develop his love of the art-form. Over the next several years he honed his skills and begin to establish his own style while capturing the beauty of our Nation’s landscapes. Scott’s landscape photography is notable for vibrant colors, contrast, and an incredible amount of detail that brings each scene to life. In addition to traditional landscapes, Scott has a passion for nightscape photography that captures the westerly night sky and all of its vast beauty.

Scott’s pursuit of landscape images has taken him all over the United States, with a particular focus on our Nation’s National Parks: “Growing up, my family really didn’t have the means to travel. As I’ve progressed in my professional life and have had the means, it’s been important for me to take the opportunity to travel and see more of the U.S. As I visited my first National Park (Death Valley, CA), I began to research our National Park System and came to admire this incredible asset our nation has built to protect the natural beauty of America. My goal as a photographer is to share the beauty of our landscapes with the viewer – to make them feel as if they were standing there next to me as I captured it.”
