About Me - Scott Thomsen

About Me

The Sleeping Bear, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Michigan

Photography is my passion. Photography is more than just trying to take the perfect picture. There is no perfect re-creation of nature. My passion is fueled by being in nature - the peace and quiet, fresh air, amazing scenery, unpredictable weather and unplanned wildlife encounters.

My focus is landscape photography. I thrive on researching locations, scouting scenes and selecting the optimal time of day, lighting and weather conditions to capture nature. The viewer cannot feel the breeze, sense the temperature or smell the trees, but I can take photographs that transport the viewer to these amazing places. I hope you enjoy my images.
