Singapore-based, Canadian photographer Scott A. Woodward calls his photography style “Choose Your Own Adventure Photography”, after the books he used to read as a young boy. Literally and creatively, Scott can go one direction and discover a remarkable photographic opportunity, or he can go another direction and find something entirely different; it is this adventure that is the beauty of photography for him.
Scott’s unique narrative photographic style has resulted in him being honoured by Luerzer’s Archive as one of the “200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide” and chosen by Nikon as “One of Asia’s Finest Photographers”. Scott’s reportage and lifestyle photography features regularly in international publications such as National Geographic Magazine, GEO, Condé Nast Traveller, Travel + Leisure, Monocle, VOGUE, GQ, Esquire and The New York Times. He has photographed international advertising campaigns for many celebrated global brands including Google, Adidas, MasterCard, Nokia, Bacardi, Diageo, Nestle, Unilever and Johnson & Johnson.
Scott is a Getty Images Global Assignments photographer. He is also a Nikon Professional Photographer, an ambassador for Nikon Singapore and a SanDisk Extreme Team member.
