Meet Scott Stolsenberg

Scott Stolsenberg is a local photographer in Yellow Springs.


He grew up in Washington Court House and has loved art as far back as he can remember. Scott studied art all through high school and college, exploring many different media including paint, pen and ink, pencil sketching and zinc plate etchings. After College he focused more on photography. In 2002, the Record Herald, a newspaper in Washington Court House, started publishing his photos. After that beginning, Scott’s work began appearing in the Trip Ohio travel magazine, Salt magazine, and the Fayette County publication, Spectrum. He spent two years working as a photographer and photo editor for Art of Photography photo studio in Washington Court House.

While he has loved all these different types of photography, Scott has always loved nature photography the most. His work showcases many places but he is especially fond of the Hocking Hills and Yellow Springs area.             
                 


For Scott, photography is his way to explore the world around him. There are nuances and details that can be missed with the naked eye. When capturing a bird, insect, flower or even a cloud within a photo, the opportunity is there to study it and admire it in even greater detail. “I always hope that people will look at my work and see things they have not noticed before, “ says Scott. “It is important for people to find connections to the world around them. Only then will they work to protect it.”       

As for how he learned photography, Scott has this to say, “I have not had much formal training. I learned most of what I know from self-study and the wonderful photographers who have shared their time and knowledge with me. In turn, I love to share what I have learned with others. Everyone has something to share and I learn something new each time I interact with another artist.”
