Scott Musson

Scott Musson is a photographer, lecturer and frequently critiques, speaks and judges at 
2010ScottMussonSq.jpgphotography organizations and clubs in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC metropolitan area. A Photographer of the Year for the Northern Virginia Photographic Society (NVPS), Scott has published a photo calendar with his wife, Emi for the past ten years.

"Photography is a natural extension of my love for travel", says Scott. "While I've taken pictures all my life, it wasn't until I was older and could afford to travel that my passion for photography truly developed. I love the whole process of photography: planning a shoot, getting up early to catch the light, processing the images (nowadays digitally), and printing and matting."

Scott has a passion for photography in and around water. He has been capturing images from a kayak and while snorkeling for a number of years. "I would snorkel everyday if I could," Scott says, and tries to makes several excursions a year to the tropics to enjoy this aspect of photography. Additionally Scott enjoys architectural and black light photography.

Scott was recently the end of year judge for the North Bethesda Camera Club and a monthly Judge for Gaithersburg Camera Club. Additionally he presented "Digital Workflow" to the Loudon Photography Club and led his second Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk in Old Town Fairfax.

Scott is a past president of the NVPS and has served on its board for several years. He has been Vice President of Competition and of Programs for that organization and currently is its website manager. He has received the NVPS "Versatile Photographer of the Year" award and the "Advanced Photographer of the Year" award for Prints and Digital Projected Images.
