Scott Bell Photography

Scott Bell is a Chicago based commercial photographer with over 20 years experience shooting advertising, corporate and editorial assignments. He is a South Florida transplant where he “cut his teeth” as a photographer working on lifestyle shoots for resorts and cruiselines.

Recently he has been concentrating on shooting athletes and "active" people sweating and struggling to perfect their game. “There is a real drive behind these people and you can see it in their eyes”. Scott is also creating more photo-illustration type conceptual imagery, taking advantage of this digital age and all the new tools at his disposal. Most of his assignments involve shooting on location but he is just as comfortable shooting portraits or action in the studio.

As a creative outlet, Scott enjoys photographing nature as well as documenting his travels. This body of work has appeared in calendars, travel guides and motivational posters.
