As the fields darkened, thousands of fireflies began twinkling, from down low in the grass to up in the tops of the trees. It was…

Small business client Adele Trahan of Sharon Davis School of Dance.

"Scott created beautiful photographs of my dancers, both in the studio and at some unique locations he found around Tallahassee, that I used throughout my website and in my print advertisements. His work has truly improved the quality of my promotional efforts. I also have metal prints of his portraits hanging in my studio lobby, which have a been a huge hit with my clients. Scott works well with subjects of all ages, toddler to adult, and can set up a portrait studio pretty much anywhere."
