TruLife® Acrylic Features Nature Photographer: Scott Papek

 

With its swirling imagery and stunning colors, the beauty of “Angel Heart,” Scott Papek’s photo of the Antelope Canyon in Arizona, is undeniable. For more than a decade, Scott’s photography has captured the allure of nature.

 

 

Journey to Photography

 

Scott began his journey in La Jolla, California as a self-taught photographer. His body of work spans the entire United States, including images of well-known and out-of-the-way splendorous locations.

 

 

Currently based in Omaha, Nebraska, Scott displays his favorite photographs at his gallery, Papek Photography, located at the Westroads Shopping Center.

 

 

The Importance of Presentation

 

“Before I take out my camera, I can look at a scene in front of me and already visualize how it will look on a wall; what paper and mount will best showcase the piece.”

 

 

Scott believes printing and presentation are just as important as getting the shot captured. This belief has led him to search for the best products and presentation materials for his photographs.

 

 

“The most underrated step to selling your art is presentation. For me, the most important part of the process is the paper you choose and the mounting. I spent four years finding the right photo paper for my style. Collectors are becoming more sophisticated with mounting options. If they are going to invest over a thousand dollars, they want to know it’s going to last forever.”

 

 

Reflections

 

Recently, Scott shared this video unveiling “Angel Heart” face mounted onto TruLife® Acrylic and shared why he’s thrilled to have TruLife in his gallery and for his clients. Here’s a hint, he “hates” reflections!

 

 

 

 

In addition to living a life of adventure, freedom, and fulfillment, Scott also has a knack for branding, marketing, and sharing his experience with new photographers.

 

 

Building a Photography Business

 

Much of Scott’s business is now online, and he utilizes many social media channels to display his photography. He uses each channel for a different reason. For example, Instagram is his daily journal of photography. To keep in touch with his clients, Scott uses his email newsletter to share events, information, and promotions.

 

 

Rumor has it that Scott will be embarking on another exciting adventure soon, holding promise for many more works of nature art. We can’t wait to see them!
