R. Scott Elgram Photography | About

Hello! My name is Scott Elgram.

I was born in Northern California but grew up in Southern California.  As a kid, my parents ran a string of photo labs in the area and abroad but I never picked up a camera.  I guess the timing just wasn’t right.

As I grew up I developed a passion for music, joined in a couple of bands, did some tours and contributed to an album or two.  After that had run its course I turned to something I knew I was good at…computers.  The next twelve years of my life were spent as a software engineer working the nine-to-five grind with everyone else.  Then, at the whim of a dear friend, I discovered yoga and started to feel the pull of the universe toward something different.

A year later I met an amazing woman who handed me a camera and said “Take a picture”. There was confusion and apprehension but when that shutter clicked everything became clear and I knew what needed to be done.

As an Eagle Scout I am an avid outdoorsman, conservationist and general lover of nature.  There is beauty in this world everywhere I look.  With a camera in my hand I try to capture that beauty every chance I get and share it with the world.

 

Photography is an expensive endeavor and I would love to continue to share my vision with the world.  If you are interested in supporting my work further I encourage you to check out my Collectors Circle.
