Hello, I'm Scott.
This is my website. I’m a 32 year old amateur photographer and professional scientist based in South Oxfordshire, England. More-or-less since I can remember, I’ve loved and been fascinated by cameras and being able to record images (both still and moving!). Since about 2005 I’ve been consciously practising photography as a hobby, and what better to do with photographs in the 21st century than put them on the internet?

This website hosts a selection of my favourite photographs, as well as now video, and a photo-related blog.

Gear
Since 2005, my main digital camera has progressed from a Canon Powershot S2 IS, to Canon EOS 350D, Canon EOS 60D, and now my current APS-C mirrorless setup. My current main camera is a Sony α6300, with the Sony 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS as my main walkabout lens and two fast primes: the Samyang 12mm f/2 and Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art. I also have a GoPro Hero 7 for video stuff. I also have a few specialist analog cameras: a Lomo Spinner 360 (35mm panoramic), Nishika N8000 (35mm quadroscopic 3D) and an AGFA Isolette (120 medium format film). For post-processing I use Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop on a Dell U2717D monitor.
Cameras for science
In my day job as a physicist working on fusion energy research at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy / UK Atomic Energy Authority, I work with cameras looking inside experimental fusion reactors. Not only can cameras provide a wealth of scientific data on incredibly interesting, cutting edge science, but these experiments can also produce a lot of beautiful images. There are a few examples of cool work I’ve been involved in here, here and here, and if you’re interested in seeing what actual research I’m involved in, you can see on Google Scholar.
