Scott A. Woodward

Canadian photographer Scott A. Woodward has spent 25 years living and working across Asia-Pacific and around the world. He calls his storytelling style "Choose Your Own Adventure Photography" after the books he used to read as a young boy. Literally and creatively, Scott can go one direction and discover a remarkable photographic opportunity; or he can go another direction and find something entirely different. It is this adventure that is the beauty of photography for him. Scott’s unique and sensitive storytelling style has resulted in him being twice honoured by Luerzer's Archive as one of the "200 Best Advertising Photographers Worldwide" and chosen by Nikon as “One of Asia’s Finest Photographers”. His imagery features regularly in a wide variety of international publications including National Geographic Magazine, Condé Nast Traveller, Monocle, Esquire, Vogue, GQ, The Washington Post, The Financial Times and The New York Times.
