About Scott Speck
Though I am a scientist and engineer by profession, my art is where I express myself most freely. I am a self-taught artist and writer with no formal art training. My photography concentrates on film-based pinhole (lensless) photography, most notably of landscapes, architecture, and portraits. I also do lensed photography with large format film cameras and digital single lens reflex cameras.
Recently, I have concentrated mostly on pinhole landscape photography, creating images that have a dreamlike, atmospheric quality. My best works in this genre are featured in this exhibition.
I have been published in print-based books, electronic books, magazines, and blogs, and I have been interviewed for my photography. I show my work at exhibitions, and my art has been purchased by enthusiasts and collectors.
I live and work in the Baltimore/DC area, and I am available for commissioned art photography, as well as to give presentations on pinhole photography to groups and clubs.
Professionally, I have worked with the Hubble Space Telescope project, the James Webb Space Telescope Project, and as a modeling/simulation engineer and analyst at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
