Born in Los Angeles California , Scott Weber earned both the Master of Fine Arts and the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco California . The rich photographic traditions of the program founded by Ansel Adams and the opportunity to study with master photographers has influenced his personal vision and his dedication to the medium of photography. Scott has spent over twenty years documenting the urban and rural landscape of America . His photographs have been collected by museums and used to illustrate documentary projects for historical purposes as well as exhibited in galleries. The use of the view camera and traditional photographic techniques helps define his personal style.
